Summary: Goodreads

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.

There are so many wonderful things to knit in this book that you will be completely spoiled for choice.  There are hats, scarves, socks, shawls, baby sweaters, doll clothes, xmas ornaments, purses, and so much more.  The absolute wonder is that each project uses no more than one skein of sock yarn.  If you're like me, you already have several different choices of sock yarn in your possession.

Sock yarn these days is so colourful and wonderful to work with and so difficult to walk away from in the store.  With this book you will be able to use up all those balls of yarn you've tried to justify purchasing and you'll help elimate your xmas list at the same time. How about a shawl for your favourite aunt, or a pair of socks for your grandfather, or a lovely sweater for the new baby in the family? 

If you get the chance, add this great title to your knitting library.  You won't be disappointed.
