Being a fairly prolific knitter, and a collector of lace patterns I sometimes find that "new" pattern books either contain patterns that I already own, are so similar to ones I already have that they are almost indistinguishable, or are sometimes available free from the yarn company. And this is true of Lace One-Skein Wonders. Having said that, here is what I like about this book:
1) Having all these patterns in one easy accessible place is great. I can grab this one book and head to the yarn store.
2) Lace One Skein Wonders will solve several of my "left over" stash dilemmas. One skein of "this or that" lace weight yarn rarely gets you anywhere. I've already spotted several designs that use yarn already hanging out in my stash.
3) This book has nice sections of cowls and home accessories in lace designs - which are less well covered in my other lace knitting pattern books.

If you enjoyed the previous One Skein Wonders books, this one will fit right in. If you are new to lace knitting, this book is a very good choice. There are simple beginner patterns, and more intriguing complex patterns. But whatever you choose, you'll only be investing in one skein. That can mean $$ if you are using alpaca, silk or cashmere.

All in all, this is a keeper, and I'll be making a dozen or more designs from this book.

I have been knitting for four years and I have more than enough yarn to last me a lifetime. The patterns are easy and fun, but when the author doesn't list the weight (lace, fingering, sport, DK, worsted, and chunky) I feel like me having to go look up the specific yarn is a chance for the designers to "make" me shop, instead of stash diving. I take some of my knitting with me to a remote cabin where I have some stash, and no internet access.

I like the patterns, but I have quite a few patterns and respective books, too. These are not stand-out, unique patterns.

I still have the book and I went through and wrote in the yarn weights needes, but in the future, I won't be buying books unless they list the yarn weight in the pattern specs.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. There are some things that are done very well and a couple of things I wish had been done dfferently. Let's start with the good:
-there are a lot of projects in this book--98 knitting and 3 crochet
-there is a huge variety in the lace projects, everything from the expected shawls and scarves, to projects for the home, baby projects, socks...really something for everyone
-the projects are worked in different weight yarns, not just lace/fingering weight
-projects contain both charts and written instructions were applicable
-projects have helpful "pattern notes".

Things I thought could be improved:
-baby items mostly come in just one size
-most of the baby clothes shown on a hanger, not on a baby
-pictures throughout the book aren't clear enough to fully see projects and often only have one picture per project
-no schematic of projects.

I would say that this book is suitable for the brave advanced beginner. It would be a good introduction to any knitter ready to learn lace. And with so many projects, there really is something for everyone.

This book is a joy. It is filled with 101 lace projects by different designers. There are hats, socks, kid knits, mitts and gloves, baby wear, scarves, cowls, shawls, stoles, accessories, and things for the home.

In the hat section, I love the Etta Hat designed by Kim Whelan. It is knit with a worsted weight yarn in a lovely purple hue. It is perfect for the beginning lace knitter. The Very Pretty Lace Beret, designed by Vera Sanon, is a more difficult project. However, is is written in text as well as charted. I don't like charts and prefer text so this is good news for me. The beret is in an ivory colorway and uses size 3 needles. The Alexandra Hat is knit in a lovely orange and designed by Jillian Moreno. It utiulizes Madeline Tosh superwash merino wool in a lovely orange color. The Tilting Ladders Hat is beautiful and is designed by Sarah Jean Hood. It is knit in cashmere and in the blue spruce color way.

The Pine Needles Mittens, designed by Jenise Reid, are lovely but require that you be a more experienced knitter. The color is dark gray. The Damask Lace Gloves in a rose-colored hue are very nice. Designed by Yumiko Sakurai, they utilize Malabrigo lace yarn.

I love the Tribute Socks designed by Brenda Patipa. They are an ivory color and are an adaptation of the Frost Flowers Lace pattern found in Barbara Walker's Treasure of Knitting Patterns. The Vesta Socks, designed by Rebecca Mercier, look perfect for lounging. They are a lovely blue and and incorporate cabled stitches.

In the kids and toddler sections there are several wonderful patterns. I particularly like the Coral Reef Hat designed by Tonia Barry. The yarn has a variegated color and the hat is bright and whimsical.
