I adore this book too.
Lots of small projects that are soo cute.
Great job on the hat btw.

It doesn't feel like exercise when you're wearing chiffon.

Yay, I am so glad everyone else is so excited about this book! And thanks for the many compliments on my little projects.

I hope more people will post their finished projects here.

And yes, it sounds like an hourglass sweater knitalong is definitely in order. I think I will be ordering some Noro Cash Iroha for that this week (periwinkle? red? orange? I can't decide!). And I'm definitely going to be making some legwarmers before I head to Maine for Christmas (I'm a Southern California wussy when it comes to cold weather!)

Great work Gertie!
I have seen this book in stores, and now I wll definately check it out again. I love the color you chose for the hat. BTW is that you in your avatar? You're so cute!

Yes, that is me, and I'm flattered! (Especially since today I am feeling decidely un-cute) You and your cat are also very, very adorable--great hairdo (yours, not the cat's, though it's nice too).

I was at Chapters last night and decided to check out Last Minute Gifts...I love it! However, I can't afford a new knitting book right now and I'm forcing myself to finish at least a few more patterns from Kit Wit and S&B...but man it was tough. My boyfriend pretty much dragged me out of the craft section. I loved the lay out of the book and the "classiness" of all the projects. DAMN that orange sweater is AMAZING, too. I really wish I'd seen this book before Knit Wit. What else have yu done from the book? Are you going to try the teddy bear or the elephant!? Cheesy So cute...

Tere, I know, isn't it just awesome?! Better yet, I'm SO happy with all the projects I've made from it. I just finished the "Airy Scarf"--a Christmas present for my mother-in-law. Incidentally, it also looks great as a headscarf. I used the Rowan Kidsilk Haze called for in the pattern--one skein makes two scarves! It was incredibly simple, and only took me a couple hours. I'm gonna make another little silk drawstring pouch to give it to her in.

Next on my list are the fuzzy angora baby booties (for a co-worker's shower), the legwarmers (for me!), and the hourglass sweater (also for me--hey you don't *have* to give all the projects as gifts, do you?!)

Wow I love the scarf! And you're right it looks awsome as a headscarf. Very pretty. Is that just a droped stitch pattern? It won't be long before I break my vow and head back to Chapters   Tongue
