Reviews - What do customers think about Minnies: QuickKnits for Babies and Toddlers (Minnowknits Books)?

Nothing but good to say about this Great Book  Jan 10, 2007
This book is one of my absolute favorites in my knitting library! And I have aLOT of books, all of EZ's, Sally Melville's and a slew of others. Minnies has it's own niche and of course would not have "everything you'd ever need to knit for babies" in it, but what it does have is a terrific selection of knits that are easy, up to date, fun, and well-recieved by the mom's. As far as mistakes, that is not always the designer's fault as many times it is out of her hands once it goes to editing/publishing. I have e-mailed Jil Eaton a couple of times for some help on a pattern and she's always responded quickly and graciously. I've made the "Mini Pini" and the "Flax Jax" for two different babies and the mothers absolutely loved them. I find that this book has more than some others, in that it includes schematics, which is a huge help. And she doesn't restrict you with "it has to be this yarn or it won't work" mentality. I love my book and it's a terrific and manageable price,too. I will never get rid of this book. And now that I am going to be a grandmother for the first, time I will be knitting alot more of these designs!
Great quick knits  May 21, 2005
I love this book for making gifts for friends children. I've made the seedling sweater, the flax jax (no sewing together) and the cable-alls sweater many times and my friends love them. I did find an error on the flax jax. You don't need nearly as much yarn as the pattern calls for.
Well, I liked it!  Jun 9, 2004
Cabled overalls, bulky vest, kimono, etc. Very cute and quick. No size 3 needles here! One of the top 3 for the 0-3 set I've seen yet! Quick and understandable for the beginner and a new perspective for experienced knitters to keep interested. A good one to keep around.
While reviewing the reviews for this book from others who have purchased it, I was amazed to see that no one remarked on the very obvious mistakes. Being a novice knitter, after completing 2 of the items in the book, I found that to avoid having these mistakes jump out at me while in the process of knitting the item, it would be better if I went over the instructions beforehand. I found so many mistakes, obvious mistakes, like not knowing that a garter stitch is a "knit every row". It was beginning to seem like a nightmare. You purchase all the equipment and then have to pray that the other instructions are correct. This book needs a good proofreader.
Nothing too inspiring  Jan 20, 2004
I was disappointed with this purchase. The cover is so cute, but the only design that is really interesting is the pink and green hat with the pom poms. That just isn't enough to warrant buying the whole book.
