From Library Journal:

Hoverson, the owner of Purls, a yarn store in New York's Soho neighborhood, has collected more than 30 patterns suitable for hand-knitted gifts and has organized them by how long it takes to knit them, from fewer than two hours (e.g., felted potholders and Angora baby booties) to more than ten (e.g., a gem of a cabled bag with attached knitted lining). Readers will want to use the number of hours as rough guidelines and would be well advised, for example, not to start that beautiful superfine mohair lace scarf in the "two- to four-hours" section the night before Christmas and expect to have it done in four hours. Excellent closeup photography leaves no doubt as to how the finished piece will look, and the designs are classic enough that they will not appear dated before the items wear out. Recommended for large public libraries and knitting collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
