The Knitter's Year Hardback
by Debbie Bliss
Anyone who has caught the knitting bug will know that knitters never like to be without a project on the go.
So what could be better than a compendium of 52 handknit designs that will take every knitter all the way through an entire year?
Each of the projects in The Knitter's Year has been designed to be made in a week or less, with some being as quick to knit up as a rainy afternoon or a couple of evenings.
Designs include homewares, accessories and things to wear.
They range from a sumptuous yet simple chunky scarf, which takes a few balls of yarn, to the adorable Easter-bunny egg cosies, which can be made using remnants of yarn leftover from larger projects.
Divided into the four seasons, the book features spring-time ideas such as a floral corsage and some fingerless gloves, plus homeware items including a shelf edging and lacy bolster cushion.
Following are summery projects like a beach bag, simple tank and string shopping bag.
Moving into Autumn, Debbie gives ideas for a back-to-school iPod cover and simple beret and scarf.
Finally Winter, where knits really come into their own with snug socks, slippers, and even ideas for Christmas gifts and tree decorations. The collection provides a blissful year of inspiration from a leading knitter to either make for yourself or to give as a special gift.
