New Books! A Quick Review of 'Gifted' by Mags Kandis

A new book by Mags Kandis--this is a collection of projects created for gift giving.
Kandis includes construction details and finishing techniques that encourage knitters & crocheters to learn new techniques while creating appealing gifts. Small projects, these gifts are designed to require a couple skeins of yarn and are leftover & stash friendly.   Two sections; Gifts for the Body & Gifts for the Soul fill the book with more than 25 patterns for wearable accessories such as hats, mittens, scarves, & socks,  and home decor including a tea cozy, pin cushion, & a needle case.  These pieces are sweet, lively and add a little joy to every household. 
I have a few favorites queued up--it's almost time to get holiday knitting underway, right?
