 30 MIN-KNITS

What Can You Do in Half an Hour or Less?

by Carol Meldrum

I recently 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 easy ones.

 

They 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.

The 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.
