Today's knitters are chic, smart-and busy. Although they love to knit and enjoy making gifts for family and friends, they're constantly faced with the challenge of finding enough time to actually finish what they've started. Last-Minute Knitted Gifts solves this problem. Joelle Hoverson, owner of Purl, the hip knitting supply store in downtown Manhattan, has designed more than 30 fun, fresh, beautiful patterns, most of which can be made in less than ten hours-some in as little as two!

Known for her keen sense of color, Hoverson includes instructions for classic gifts like baby booties and bonnets, sweaters, and scarves, plus imaginative options like a cashmere tea cozy, a felted yoga mat bag, floor cushions, and a poncho-surely something for everyone on the gift list. And to make each present extra-special, Hoverson offers easy tips on how to incorporate knitting and other yarn embellishments into the gift wrap.

About the Author:

Knitwear designer Joelle Hoverson is the owner of Purl, an upscale knitting supply store in New York City's trendy SoHo neighborhood. Since opening in 2002, Purl has been featured in Oprah Winfrey's O magazine, Lucky, and Time Out, as well as on Martha Stewart's syndicated television show. From 1996 to 2000, Hoverson worked as a senior style editor for Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. She holds a master of fine arts degree from Yale University.

Anna Williams is a freelance photographer based in New York City. Her work appears frequently in Martha Stewart Living, Oprah Winfrey's O magazine, Food & Wine, Gourmet, Real Simple, In Style, Elle Decor, and other national publications.

From Booklist:

Hoverson was skeptical when her editor asked her to come up with projects that could be knitted in 10 hours or less, but after some research, she was delighted to find numerous simple projects that were "inspiring, challenging, and fun." Following introductory chapters that discuss color, fiber, tools, and patterns, the patterns themselves begin. Divided by the length of time it takes to complete each project (some less than 2 hours!), the book shows off a wide array of gifts. The quickest include angora baby booties, a kerchief scarf, and potholders. If the knitter is able to take a little longer, there's time to make leg warmers, hats, and scarves. Sweaters, knit toys, and a felted yoga bag take only 4 to 6 hours (provided, of course, that the knitter doesn't abandon the project for a year or so). Lush color photographs make every one of these items look like a winner, and the directions are clear and easy to follow. A list of books for further reading is a nice touch. Ilene Cooper
