I can’t max poetic enough on Joelle Hoverson’s More Last Minute Knitted Gifts book, which I’ve had for years and am currently using for Leah’s Lovely Cardigan.
Every pattern in this book is gorgeous, and I love how she breaks it down into the amount of hours a gift will take to knit. It helps to understand the “investment” ahead of time, because let’s face it, that matters.
The other day, while working on my cardigan, I thumbed through the book again and came across her 1 hour baby socks. They were so cute, I just had to knit a pair to match a sweater vest I recently knit for an impending bundle.
If you are in need of a really quick knit with gorgeous results, get this book.
