Book Review - Gifted by Mags Kandis

Greetings from Sunny Bakersfield!   This week Stitchy will be doing a book review on Gifted by Mags Kandis.  Unfortunately Stitchy did not have time to take a picture of the book and a project from it, so please enjoy this old picture of a hibiscus.  On an interesting side note, this hibiscus plant is still alive and is still on Stitchy's front porch.

Gifted only just recently came out and is a collection of quick and easy knit and crochet projects to give as gifts and this is hands down the best project book Stitchy has ever purchased.

For starters, Stitchy ordered this from KnitPicks.com and for those of you who may not always have a few extra dollars to spend, keep an eye out at KnitPicks.com because they regularly run 40% off book sales. 

That being said, this book was money well spent.  Stitchy has used this for many personal projects and has gained a lot of inspiration from it for many many other projects.  The first project that Stitchy completed for personal use were they boot cuffs.  They were such a sweet idea, a lacy topper to wear with boots when it's just too cold for pretty socks to show.  Stitchy also made the tea cozy for her Mom (who loved it by the way) and it was made fairly quickly as well. 

Other cute projects include felted hearts or Hearts Milagros, fair isle socks, crocheted paper rose napkin rings, and the one that Stitchy has been dying to try:  Egg Cozies.  These simple little knitted and felted egg cozies are used for soft boiled eggs sitting in egg cups and they look like cute little beanie hats to help keep your eggs warm.  They are too too adorable!

Be sure the next time you are looking for a new project that you definitely check out Gifted by Mags Kandis for some simple yet extremely fun knitting and crochet projects.

Until next week...

xoxo,
Stitchy
