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.
