Excellent book for impatient knitters,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 101 Designer One-Skein Wonders (Paperback)
I bought this when I just started knitting again and have found it a great inspiration. As many of the projects use only a ball or two of yarn it is a great way to experiment with new yarns (I never use the ones suggested) and learn new techniques such as cables, lace knitting, felting. I have so far made a vest, bag, 2 hats and probably more I have forgotten. There are also a small number of crochet projects which is good because I love that too!
The instructions are very clear with good pictures. I would have liked more information on substituting yards, i.e. is the yarn suggested 4 ply, aran weight, etc. as the point is that these projects should use up your stash.
"One-skein" is stretching the truth rather. There are projects in here where 1 skein is actually a 500g cone! Nonetheless it is a very good book and I recommend it.
