"Clever twists on time-honoured designs make these patterns special."--The Knitter (UK)

"The title says "gifts", but who says you can't gift yourself? These little projects are also great teaching and learning tools with a variety of knitting levels and techniques. The patterns are of that earthy modern style that Ann Budd and Interweave have come to characterize."--Knitty.com

"It's the first knitted gift book to catch my eye in a long time. These projects are classy-they may be whimsical when appropriate, but they're often also subdued and elegant, practical and pretty. They'll stand up tall against any store-bought gift, fitting examples of the full potential of knitted gifts. And best of all, the projects are as knittable as they are attractive. The patterns are well-edited and easy to follow, the photography shows you quite clearly what you're doing, the layout is inviting, and the overall execution is clean and flawless."
-Clara Parkes, editor, Knitter’s Review

"Irresistible... There's something here for just about every recipient, knitters of every skill level and projects that need to be completed in every time frame." -About.com Guide to Knitting

"The expected array of outerwear, socks and home decor is all here, but it's the unexpected touches that stand out." -Yarn Market News
