First, the facts:

The In-Depth Look:
Sometimes, all you really want in life is warm hands. Especially after the winter we all just had. But, we’re knitters, so we don’t want the same old, boring mitts that everyone else is wearing. We want ours to be unique, creative, colorful … and did I mention warm?
The author says in the introduction, “When I was approached to do this book, my first thought was ‘Gloves? Gosh, how in the world can I come up with 25 distinctive designs for hands?’ Mitts seemed inconsequential, with little room for fun and exploration. But the more I started sketching out designs and playing around with different ideas, the more smitten I was with the concept … This book was designed with every knitter in mind. Fingerless gloves and mittens are the perfect project for quick gratification, to learn a new technique, and to knit on the go.”
All of which is quite true, and one of the beauties of this book is that it does provide such a variety of techniques–which is perfect it you want to try something new without committing yourself to a big, sweater-sized project.
