Reviews

July 14 Grab those needles, a hook and some yarn and put yourself instantly into the Christmas spirit with these fun decorations. Small enough to grow quickly and varied in subject matter these are sure to be treasured part of the Christmas decorating for years to come, or great gifts if you can bear to part with them. If these designs look strangely familiar then you probably already possess Mini Christmas Knits and Mini Christmas Crochet, a pair of Twenty To Make books from 2011. This book also came out in hardcover the year after, so you can see what a well-loved book it is. Here it is again in soft cover, ready to delight a new batch of yarncrafters. What makes it special? Perhaps it is because these are all small items that are not too difficult or lengthy to make; Christmas is a busy time and large projects are liable to get left unfinished. These are the right size, and make wonderful decorations for the tree and the table as well as gifts and charity sales. Each design has a page of written instructions, a list of what you need and either a view from a different angle or a variation. On the other page is a full-page photograph of the finished item. Choose from angels, fairies, trees, various creatures, snowflakes, snowmen, stockings, puddings, bunting and more. My favorite knit has to be the beautiful fir tree egg cozy and my favorite crochet the delicate bell. This is not a book on how to knit or crochet, but anybody of improver or higher experience ought to find them a pleasant and relaxing break from larger projects and a fun way of using up all that leftover yarn. * Myshelf.com * Jul 14 Christmas is running quickly towards us. Now is an ideal time to start thinking about what you want to make for Christmas. This book is full of ideal makes as they are nice and small so won't make you hot whilst you are making them. With 20 projects for knitting and 20 projects to crochet you can't go wrong. There is so much to choose from. It's a book you can use year after year to add to your decorations or give them as gifts. Each of the patterns are in easy to read written format. They are easy to follow and give you really good guidelines as to how to put the decoration together. I love this book! It is packed full of beautiful fun things to make for Christmas. I'm going to make sets up and give them to relatives this Christmas. This book has to be 5 out of 5! * Crochet Addict UK * November 2014 Knitters and crocheters will love this collection of mini Christmas projects to create for the holiday season.

What a great way to use up the scraps of yarn we all have hidden away. * Cake Craft & Decoration * September 2014 Christmas is a-coming and what better way to use up those yarn scraps than making some decorations for the tree?
