Review quote

Keep your breakfast boiled egg warm in style with some fun, quick to make knitted egg cosies. They are guaranteed to raise a smile and are ideal to make as presents or charity fundraisers. I can remember making and playing with felt or paper finger puppets as a child, and these are also ideal for this purpose. They are also ideal for using up oddments of yarn in an environmentally friendly way and frankly are just plain good fun both to make and use. Choose from everyday novelties such as traditional stripes, various animals, a desert island, silvery robot and adorable octopus, or seasonal and festive designs such as Easter bunny, snowman and penguin, witch, ghost and even a bride and groom for the wedding breakfast. This is not a book on how to knit, but a fun book of projects for anybody who can - you don't need to be a very advanced knitter to tackle these small but satisfying projects, but you do need to be able to knit in the round on four double-pointed needles. Some of the designs double up for a variation made by changing something slightly, such as the ghost becomes an alien, clown becomes Frankenstein and the owl can turn into a companion pussy cat. For a little book I think that you get more than your money's worth.-Myshelf.com
