Knitting Pattern-a-Day Calendar
Something new...a calendar
with [almost] a knitting pattern for every
day of the year! And as a first knitting
project from a non-knitting company, it's
quite a good start.
The patterns come on
individual paper sheets in a box that
also acts as a stand. The paper is quite
thin, and may not stand up to much handling,
but should do if you're careful. The patterns
vary wildly in quality and style from
very professional to very homemade-looking.
The quality of the photographs similarly
But there are some sweet
projects in here, including little hats,
basic sweaters and lots of little knitted
things. December is full of the obligatory
red-and-green projects of all sorts. Scarves,
socks, vests. All sorts.
No -- it's not a knitting
book, and can't be judged as such. But
as a calendar, it's quite fun to see what's
next each day and if you'd want to knit
it. And having corresponded with the publisher,
I'm encouraged that their 2006 version
will be even better.
