For many people, the best part of the winter holidays is the anticipation: planning the perfect gifts, decorating the house, looking forward to seeing family and friends. Holidays can be particularly special for knitters, whose preparations often start months in advance and involve their own creations. In Handknit Holidays best-selling knitting author Melanie Falick presents an eclectic collection of more than 50 original gifts, decorations, and clothing pieces for Christmas, Hanukkah, and the winter solstice, providing year-round inspiration for knitters of all levels. Created by top knitwear designers, the projects include colorful ornaments; funky and classic Christmas stockings; a wire-and-bead menorah; sparkly ribbon scarves; a poncho and matching dog sweater; and a range of super-quick projects for that last-minute holiday rush, from a Santa hat, to elf caps, to flower pins. Rounding out the volume are a few grand projects—an Aran tree skirt, a patchwork afghan, a lace shawl—destined to become family heirlooms, plus features on such topics as the origin of the Christmas stocking, the meaning of the winter solstice, knitting for charities, strategies for finishing holiday knitting (on schedule!), and even a delicious recipe for festive crescent cookies. Beautifully photographed by Susan Pittard, Handknit Holidays is a creative celebration of the holiday season and a treasure for all knitters who seek to bring more of their own handwork—and artistry—into their daily lives and their holiday festivities.

In diesem Buch geht es vor allem um Fasern. Garn, Schnur, Faden und Stoff - und die vielen verschiedenen Dinge, die man damit machen kann, wie zum Beispiel nähen, sticken, filzen, stricken, häkeln und weben. Kinder werden dazu angeregt Projekte für sich oder Geschenke für andere mit ihren eigenen Händen herzustellen. Dabei sollen sie ruhig ihren eigenen Weg finden, die Dinge anzupacken. Hier geht es nicht darum, die Anleitungen zu den einzelnen Projekten sklavisch zu befolgen, sondern die eigene Kreativität walten zu lassen. In 18 spannenden Projekten von gewebten Freundschaftsbändern, genähten Schlüsselanhängern bis hin zu gehäkelten Stiftrollen, werden die beliebtesten Handarbeitsfähigkeiten einfach aber detailliert erklärt. Eine der schönsten Aussagen von »Stitch Camp« ist aber: »Keine Scheu vor Fehlern! Selbst die besten machen immer noch Fehler, und dass sie so gut wurden, wie sie sind, liegt daran, dass sie aus ihren Fehlern gelernt haben.«
