Staff Pick

Sock yarn is often meant to be shown off, displayed for all to see. Yet with your shoes on, how can anyone appreciate not only the time you spent knitting your socks but the tantalizing hand-dyed yarns, as well? Sock knitter, meet Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders. This book offers 101 fresh and contemporary patterns that use just one skein of yarn to make all sorts of non-sock knits. Shawls, gloves, caps, and kids' knits are just a few of the projects that will get your needles moving and help you bust your stash. (And yes, there are sock patterns included, and they are gorgeous.) Most of the projects can be knit in a few days, if not a few hours, and guarantee instant gratification. Following in the footsteps of the rest of the One Skein series, Judith Durant's new book is an exciting addition to any knitter's library.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every knitter understands the allure of sock yarn. It slips easily into a handbag, comes in endless variations, and represents a dazzling array of possibilities. Best of all, it’s relatively inexpensive, making it an affordable splurge. And knitting stores are devoting more and more shelf space to the ever-growing range of choices. As a result, many knitters find themselves with veritable “collections” of sock yarn — dozens, sometimes even hundreds of skeins — in their stash.

Fortunately, sock yarn can be used for more than simply keeping toes toasty. In Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders: 101 Patterns That Go Way Beyond Socks! veteran knitter Judith Durant has chosen not simply inventive sock patterns but also more than 5 dozen inspired patterns for other items that can be created from a single skein of sock yarn. The latest in Storey’s enormously popular One-Skein Wonders series, Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders offers one-of-a-kind patterns for baby clothes, mittens, scarves, hats, jewelry, cozies, bags . . . even a dog sweater and a lamp shade!

Contributed by yarn shops and designers throughout North America, the patterns are as fetching as they are fun to knit. Knitters of every skill level will ?nd tantalizing challenges; some knit up in fewer than three hours, others make creative use of sock yarn leftovers, and several

make heirloom-worthy gifts. Collectively, these patterns bring out the best of sock yarn . . . whether variegated or solid-colored, self-patterning or hand-painted.

Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders has an easy-to-browse layout, four-color photos throughout, step-by-step instructions, clear illustrations and charts, and stylish patterns. With this book in their knitting bags, needlecrafters will take their stash of sock yarn well beyond stockinged feet to a delightful world of possibility.

Elaine, December 6, 2010 (view all comments by Elaine)
This book is new. This book is hot - and well it should be! This is the eagerly-awaited sock yarn version of the One Skein Wonder books. Many knitters love to buy skeins of sock yarn because you can get something beautiful for relatively little money, and there are so many gorgeous hand dyed and hand painted sock yarns out there, it is easy to become an addict. But how many pair of hand knit socks does one need? Often, the nicest sock yarns are made of cashmere, merino, alpaca, silk and similar luxury yarns or blends which don't necessarily wear well as socks even though they are visually beautiful. It also sometimes feels like I waste to put something that beautiful inside a shoe or boot that no one will see.

This book provides the answer for what to do with those individual skeins of sock yarn. There are patterns for hats, caps, mitts, gloves and cuffs. For scarves, neckwarmers, shawls and shrugs, bags and purses, things for the home. Patterns for kids and dolls. And, of course, sock patterns since we can never have our fill of them.

I didn't love the (original) One Skein Wonders book nearly as much as I love this one. Lots of knitters will be getting this one in their (hand knit) stockings this year, I'll bet, and will be thrilled with it!
