24 Knitting Magazines -Gone!

I know that my blogging hit a slump this summer, but I’ve been getting rid of some of my extensive collection. September is here and with a deadline for our winter trip to Florida I’ve got to up my game! Today I’m going to review 2 books with a similar theme.

Crochet Mags – Gone!

A group of 10 Crochet Today magazines are no longer in my collection!

Gift Knits – cover

This is an “oldie but goodie” published in 1994. I really didn’t see much in this book to make it a “keeper”.

There are quite a few multicolor knits in the book. Not my favorite.

Heart

Garter Stitch Heart

I love knitted hearts. This one is a winner!

teddy_bears

Teddy bears to knit

baby

Baby Boy – Baby Girl

I’m tempted to make a copy of the charts for these projects. I wouldn’t use as sweaters, but could be cute on something else – maybe a bib.

Book #2 is a 2006 book and I’m very undecided about keeping it. More on that later.

Love the photos in this small (96 page) book.

Basic Doll

This cute doll has a whole chapter of outfits for the doll.

Teddy Bear

My favorite project in the book is this traditional teddy with a couple of sweater designs for him/her to wear.

Teddy Sweater

Traditional teddy deserves a traditional cabled pullover!

Kangaroo and baby

How cute are this duo!

How can I resist this book! One to go; one to keep!
