I just bought a wonderful knitting book
called "One Skein Wonders, 101 Yarn Shop Favorites"...edited by Judith Durant...see below....
One Skein Wonders
It has SO many nice projects in it.
Such as many pretty hats, shrugs, children/baby sweaters, many scarves, even some lace projects, handbags some felted too!! Has some felted flowers, socks, and one or two shawls. Really ALL very nice projects. Its for the beginner as well as the more experienced knitter. I highly recommend it.
