Can You Do in Half an Hour or Less?
bought a book called: 30 min - knits
What can you knit in half an hour or less?
by Carol Meldrum, published in 2012. A wide variety
of fun little projects are offered that supposedly can be
made in 30 minute time slots, depending on a knitter's basic
knitting speed and familiarity with pattern techniques.
I personally think 30 minutes is a bit minimal for the majority,
if not all of the projects, but they are still quick and
are divided into 40 Easy Projects and 20 Intermediate ones.
The easy ones include a cute chick, a mug cozy, round coasters,
little birds, a baby pixie hat, teddy bear baby hat, a tiny
teddy bear, an ear warmer, fingerless gloves, a set of three
finger puppets, and a small cat pillow. The intermediate
ones include two types of baby booties, baby mittens, a
string of birds, a set of tumbling leaves, a dog bone
key ring, and a set of four different flowers. These
are some of my favorites.
book is 128 pages long and sells for $16.99. I really
like the book. I imagine there are times when even
the most advanced knitters would like to make some quicker
and simpler projects, and this book has 60 projects to choose
from. Instructions appear to be well written, and
photos are bright and appealing.
