Book of the Week (and a signing!)
Are you expecting a baby, do you know some who is, are looking for a shower gift or a new baby gift? If so this week's featured book is perfect for you. What to Knit When You're expecting, By Nikki Van De Caris a collection of 30 patterns that she created to keep herself busy during the months before the birth of her daughter.
The book is divided into three sections. The patterns in the first trimester section are larger scale projects (blanket, sleeping bag); the second trimester features items specific to a boy or a girl (this is when the mum-to-be may find out her child's sex). I loved the little tutu and the gathered pinafore dress. In addition, the little toggle jacket, which the author says made her stepdaughter look like a wood-elf! All clothes come in sizes from newborn-12 months. The third trimester focusses on small last-minute knits - cute cushions, hats etc.
The designs are clever and interesting, and definitely keep you engaged, but none are too complicated: many of them are suitable for beginners, and an intermediate knitter should be able to tackle them all easily. Honestly, my biggest issue with this book is deciding what to knit next! If you're looking for wonderful patterns for baby garments, look no further. This would also make a splendid gift for any knitter in your life.
