      Product Description-One Skein: 30 Quick Projects to Knit or
These knitted and crocheted fashion accessories and decorative accents for the home vary in their required levels of skill, but all
  can be completed quickly and require only one skein of yarn. The stitch patterns and clear instructions make it easy for even
   procrastinators and the less-than-diligent to create a ruffled cravat, a drawstring bag, a tank top, cozy scarves, arm and leg
 warmers, lace wristlets, fingerless gloves, a mohair pillow, and even a sweater for a baby. Several projects do not require any
 new yarn at all—instead projects such as the Felted Striped Tote or the Labyrinth Circle Rug are designed using up a skein's
    worth of leftovers from other projects. A guide to terms and techniques, a resource directory, and a bibliography are also

a must-have!, March 15, 2006 By Blue Peninsula (Massachusetts)
This review is from: One Skein: 30 Quick Projects to Knit or Crochet (Paperback) I couldn't wait to get started on the patterns in
this book. The day I bought it, I immediately began knitting the adorable Petal Bib, which used less than a skein of cotton yarn
that I had in my stash. It was a hit at the baby shower I attended! A few days later, I made the Stash Handbag using a leftover
skein of Lopi and other yarns I had on hand. It came out beautifully, and I have gotten compliments on it just about every
day.One Skein features lovely, inspired, and practical items that can be made from a single skein of yarn (or less). Baby bibs
and sweaters, handbags (some felted, some not), mittens, cabled scarves, wrist warmers, a tank top made with laceweight yarn
. . . every project is stunning, as is the photography and the layout.So far, I have found the patterns to be easy to follow and
error-free. This isn't a book for a beginning knitter, but if you know the basics, you can make many of these projects. And you'll
learn new techniques (such as...

Beautiful one skein interesting projects, August 21, 2006 By annesailorgirl "annesailorgirl" (Michigan, USA)
This review is from: One Skein: 30 Quick Projects to Knit or Crochet (Paperback) I love this book of small one-skein knitted
projects. I've knit the adorable baby hat, the felted clutch purse, the cable footies, and I have my eyes on making the felted
bowls, the baby petal bib, and the spiral rib bag. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. This has become one of my
favorite knitting books ever, since I love small projects that are beautiful and don't bore me before they are done and become
abandoned to closet corners. I also love the pictures in this beautiful book; I'm inspired just looking at the lovely yarns. By the
way, the baby hat is lovely done in Rowan wool cotton.The 30 projects are:Put It On:Leg Warmers, Tank Top, Cable Footies,
Silk Sleeves, Unisex Gloves, Asymmetrical Cable Hat, Rib and Cable Quartet (scarves), Fingerless Garter Mitts, Crochet Cap
and Ruffle Cravat.Take It With You:The Clutch You'll Never Give Up, Spiral Rib Bag, Geometric Accessory Bags (3 choices)...

One fun skein, March 11, 2006 By Joanna Daneman (Middletown, DE USA)
           This review is from: One Skein: 30 Quick Projects to Knit or Crochet (Paperback) This book is a variant on the
"oddball" idea. What do you do with one lone skein of yarn? You know the problem; you go to a knitting store and there is one
simply cuddly, interesting, fascinating, pretty orphan ball of yarn (or it's leftover in your stash) and what on EARTH do you do
with it? Here are some ideas.There is a very fine baby jacket made of one ball of each color to make a color block design (well,
it isn't EXACTLY one skein, but sure uses up oddball colors.) But the real prize are the felted projects like felted small bags and
felted bowls. These are great for gifts. There is also a novel boa made of pom-poms (leftovers really work here) and a couple of
stylish mohair pillows with buttons. My absolute favorite, however, are the knitted cupcakes. Using a ribbing for the cupcake
"cup" and frosting of furry novelty yarn, you can make a number of these intriguing non-edible confections, dress them up with
bugle bead jimmies or a button cherry on top. A box of...
