Lace One-Skein Wonders, A Review

I met one of the designers whom has a pattern in Lace One-Skein Wonders, by Judith Durant. The designer I met at my local knit night was the one who designed the choker and bracelet set with the Majohng tiles as focal points.  This book provides 101 patterns of knits and crochet projects for accessories, babies, scarves, shawls, children and the home.  The photography is beautiful.  The descriptions had me wanting to break out my needles and hooks and some fun yarns. 

I really wanted to get started on at least five of the scarves and shawls.  I just made a bunch of sweaters for a new nephew, but I wanted to make one for him from this book.  There were items for the bath and kitchen that I could see being great holiday gifts. 

There’s also any number of items that can be gifts for those who have a new home, a new job, a new baby, a holiday, a birthday, or any other happy celebration.  There’s also some very practical items that will make sock knitters like me very happy. 

If you like the "One Skein Wonders" series of books, working with lace stitches or lace weight yarn, or you just like looking through the newest yarn books, then is a great book for you.

I give it 5/5 stars.

I received this book free from the publisher through the NetGalley program in exchange for my honest review. The opinions expressed here are my own.
