“Two needles and one (or one more) skein of yarn—the possibilities never cease to amaze me,” writes Leigh Radford in the introduction to her new book. Radford’s fascination with the creative potential of these raw materials is evident throughout One More Skein, where she melds the alternative approach to knitting and felting she introduced in AlterKnits and AlterKnits Felt with the magic she worked with a single skein of yarn in the bestselling One Skein.
One More Skein features 30 diverse projects that can be completed with one or two average-sized skeins of yarn or multiple bits of leftover yarn. Projects include an earflap hat sized for the whole family; fingerless mitts; sweaters, britches, and capelets for baby; hemp jewelry embellished with jump ring “beads”; a felted, pleated sleeve to dress up a vase; and a multicolored blanket worked from assorted stash yarn. All of them are quick and relatively easy to make, without sacrificing beauty or ingenuity.
Leigh Radford is the author of AlterKnits and AlterKnits Felt (STC) and One Skein, a highly sought after teacher, and the former art director of Interweave Knits magazine. She has designed knitwear for Interweave Knits and for Lantern Moon. Her work has appeared in numerous books, including Weekend Knitting and Handknit Holidays (STC).
The content of this book is good, but I really dislike the format. Though it is not in PDF, it appears to be photos of a hard copy of the book, and not flexible like a regular e-book.
