View Full Version : Best book of quick baby gift stuff?

03-09-2006, 05:36 PM
I was wondering if anyone could recommend a book for me that has good baby gift stuff, that is fairly quick (not heirloom quality stuff, but not all garter stitch either, LOL... intermediate stuff mainly, I guess).

I am forever perusing the Internet for just the right pattern for baby socks, a bonnet, a blanket, a sweater, etc.

I think if I had a nice book with nice patterns I could save some time! I need less options, LOL.

Any suggestions? I'd prefer one that includes a variety. Most of the ones I've seen seem to focus mainly on sweaters and hats. :??

Type in "knitting for baby" in Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/104-3934834-7341502?search-alias=aps&keywords=knitting%20for%20baby) and you'll get a ton to look at. Some of them you can view inside and look at the table of contents among other areas to see what type of patterns the book has in it.

I just bought "Special Knits" by Debbie Bliss and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Yes, most of the patterns has some intricate aspect, but most of the patterns could be done very quickly by dumping the motif or beading or whatnot. The basic patterns are really nice.

I loooove "Knitting for Baby." It starts with simple patterns and gets more advanced as you go through the book. :thumbsup:
