Review: Knit Pink is a book of 25 patterns to knit for comfort, gratitude and charity, thanks to Lorna Miser. You are sure to find a color pink that suits your taste. Or change the color and see how it can make a difference. The skill levels include beginner, easy and intermediate. Large, clear photographs are included from several angles. The "Helpful Information" section at the back of the book includes knitting techniques, sewing zippers into knitting, using fused lining, abbreviations and more. There are patterns for scarves, hats, pillows, a tote, socks, slippers and a zippered purse.
An easy "Wrapped in Warmth Blanket" is knit from a center panel and then using mitered corners, fans out from there. Who wouldn't want to cozy up in this throw? "Big Carry-all Tote" has a fused lining (no sewing) with suede handles and bottoms. This beginner 80/20 cotton/wool project will keep its shape no matter what you are carrying. On the cover is "Soft Embrace Shawlette" an intermediate project worked in 100% bamboo yarn. The yarn has sheen, drape and knit with lace edges and shaping. Knitting this using any color is sure to be a hit. --Paula Moliver, Hartford Knitting Examiner, March 2014
