Step It Up - book review

The gift giving season is upon us and you know what that means!? It's time to quit messing around and get down to fibery business. 

This is my friend Vickie Howell and she is prepared to help you out:

Vickie Howell and Drew Emborsky

Because her latest book has just been released and it's amazing!

Step It Up Knits

Vickie has pulled together a great selection of super cute projects that will help you upgrade your knitting skills. With 25 gorgeous projects from cabled wrist warmers to slouchy beanies, lacy headbands, and cozy cowls, the book is filled with projects that are small enough to take on the go and whip up in just a weekend.  The step-by-step photographs, detailed instructions, helpful diagrams, and inspiring project shots make it easy to follow along. 

This book is wonderful for both beginner knitters who want to improve their skills, and also not-so-beginner knitters who want to indulge in Vickie's amazing design sensibility!

Here are a few of my favorite projects form the book (click for bigger view):

Remember, you don't have to make these projects to give as gifts, you can also give the book! Maybe the lucky knitter recipient will make you one of the projects (a little sticky note next to your favorite with the word "hint" on it wouldn't hurt). It's a win- win!
