Review quote

This book is packed with fun knitted food that's full of fibre and short on calories! And with all that Christmas bingeing, we're hoping it will help curb your cravings as you wean your way back to normality. So next time you fancy a slice of pizza, hot dog or hamburger - knit it. Perhaps you have more of a sweet tooth, in which case the Swiss roll, gateau or fruit tart should fit the bill. These patterns are all simple to knit and make quirky gifts for friends with a sense of humour. If you know someone who's dieting, knit them some cake for their birthday instead of baking it. These snacks also make great playthings for kids - they'll love putting the items on plates from their tea sets to make delicious banquets for their bears and dolls.-Knit Today Been struggling with a New Year diet?
