Review quote

Oct 12



Not everybody likes vegetables, but you can be sure they'll love these ones - kids included! The tasty, juicy fruits and crisp, crunchy vegetables are just begging to be knitted. The projects are all quick to make, and easy too, so you'll have time to create quirky gifts for all your friends and family. A fruit basket for your grandma, a spread of carrots and courgettes for your veggie pal, or an apple for the teacher perhaps? They're also a brilliant way to use up those odds and ends of yarn that you've been hanging onto. And these fruits and vegetables can be enjoyed for years to come - unlike the real thing, they'll never go past their best. * Knit Today * Sept 12



They're ever so cute, and they're great little projects for using up oddments of yarn. This book has 50 designs for a greengrocer's shopful of woolly product - our favourite is the bananas with their yellow zip-up jackets! The items are small, so they're great for practising techniques, such as knitting in the round, increasing and decreasing. You'll be amazed at the variations in shape that can be achieved with a few simple stitch techniques. * Simply Knitting *
