Whether you need to make a gift for someone, or just keep your hands busy so you don't eat all the Christmas cookies at one time, the library has plenty of books and videos that tell you how to stay busy making things.  My particular fascination at the moment is knitting, so here is a smattering of the kinds of things the library has about knitting.

For a quick knitting project, take a look at these books:

Big Needle Knitting, edited by Bobbie Matela

Speed Knitting: 24 quick and easy projects, by Kris Percival

7-day afghan book by Jean Leinhauser

The Knitter's Year: 52 make-in-a-week projects, by Debbie Bliss

One Skein Wonders, edited by Judith Durant

If you are a beginning knitter, there are many books and DVDs to teach you how to knit. Here are a couple:book jacket

The Easy Learn to Knit in Just One Day

The Absolute Best Way to Learn How to Knit, with Leslye Solomon

For the experienced knitter, there are books about knitting with different

materials, or all kinds of projects beyond the traditional scarves and sweaters:

Knitting with Beads, by Jane Davis

Knit 2 Together, by Tracey Ullman and Mel Clark

Fast Fun and Easy Fabric Knitting, by Cyndy Lyle Rymer

Easy Accessories: 50 chic projects to knit and crochet, from Family Circle

100 Flowers to Knit & Crochet, by Lesley Stanfield

Cowlgirls: the neck's big thing to knit, by Cathy Carron

Home Knits: luxurious handknits for every room of the house, by Suss Cousins

Easy Toys: 25 delightful creations to knit and crochet, from Family Circle

The only real risk to checking out what the library has on your hobby is that you will end up like me, with too many projects and too little time!
