Sock yarn can be used for much more than socks! Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders® is an irresistible compilation of 101 original patterns for baby clothes, mittens, scarves, hats, jewelry, cozies, bags -- even a dog sweater and a lamp shade -- that all use just a single skein of sock yarn. 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 find the perfect project: some knit up in fewer than three hours, others make creative use of sock yarn leftovers, and several make heirloom-worthy gifts. With this book in your knitting bag, your stash of sock yarn will be gone in no time.

Loved this book! I've only checked it out from the library, but I think investing in my own copy would be wise. The patterns are clear and concise, as well as unique and beautiful. I think I'll be making the Hera Headband for myself, and a few of the doll clothes for my little sister. They are the perfect size for American Girl dolls. The back of the book provides information on each of the designers, including websites and blog URLs. I highly recommend this book to any knitter, but especially to those who have a growing "stash", and want some cute and clever ways to make use of it.more
I have knit two projects from this book so far and they both turned out great. No errors in the pattern so I think maybe they realized that they needed to spend more time editing the patterns in this book. I have always liked the patterns in this series of books but found the errata frustrating at times.more
