Leigh Radford's patterns are well written and carfully crafted. I did not seem to find any obvious errors, but if you do, the author (UPDATE: [...]) should have an errata page set up. Radford adds a few twists to common patterns to offer something just a little different. Most of the patterns are easy to adapt to various yarns. Nice for newbie-knitters. The patterns are fairly basic -- so not only are you using up loose skeins, these make great gifts. My favorite aspect is that you can buy on single skein of a luxurious/expensive yarn without the guilt and have a finished project. Beware that having too many one-skein books ends up in lots of similar/duplicate patterns.
"One More Skein" also has many nice projects that require only one skein to knit; however, it's too similar to the original. In fact, a couple of the projects seem like they're just a rehash of projects from "One Skein."
So, if you've got the original "One Skein," this new book just doesn't offer enough new projects to make it worth your while.
While author Leigh Radford has introduced some original design elements, as a lifelong knitter, I find this collection a bit too basic. On the other hand, it would probably be of great interest to beginners or those looking for some quick, easy, and attractive gifts.

Its a good enough book. There are not many projects I would really knit though. If I had thumbed through it before purchase I wouldn't have bought it.Published on January 26, 2013 by Rann
