More About the Author

In the late 1970s, Emerson College in Boston granted me a highly useful degree in theater, with a specialty in costume design. After spending several years hanging around the costume shops in New York trying to make ends meet, I was fortunate enough to land a publishing job; I've been working as an editor and writer ever since.

My mom taught me to knit when I was a young girl. The beadwork thing got serious while I was working as the book editor for Interweave Press. Many other crafty things have presented themselves along the way, and as a result I'm never bored.

Originally from Massachusetts, I spent fifteen years in New York City, then six and one-half in Colorado; the past six years have been spent back in Massachusetts. Retiring in France is a current dream.

I have all of the One Skein series and I think this is the best one. This one seems to have the biggest variety of patterns that I would actually want to use. The author included a photo on the same page as the pattern (this was not done on other one-skein books) -- this is a big improvement in browsing! Sock yarn is my favorite to buy -- pretty colors, typically very soft, but I get tired of knitting socks. Perfect book for me!

There are sock patterns (of course), scarves, lace items, shawls, gloves & fingerless mitts, baby clothes, tea cozy, dog clothes, placemats, lampshade, ornaments, bags, pillows, hats (kid & adults).... and lots of other things, too.

The shawls look especially fun to try! One very nice note: the book is in color and you can see how the varigated sock yarns would look knitted up! This is HUGE to me, I often buy varigated sock yarn only to find that it pools and does odd patterning (yuck), but with most patterns in One Skein, I can see how those pretty-in-hanks yarns will actually knit up! YAY!

One of the best new knitting books of the season! I'm ready to make a dent in my sock yarn stash!

As a sockaholic with a large stash of sock yarn, I waited with great anticipation for this book! And I was not disappointed! I love the variety of patterns, and want to knit many of the projects - including a couple of the sock patterns! There are some beautiful scarves and shawls, as well as some cute baby and doll clothes. This is one book I shall be going back to time and time again!

I cannot wait to start on some of the projects in this book. The scarves, gloves, and shawls are wondrous and challenging. The Floral Fingerless Gloves are adorable. The Gambit Unisex Scarf should be as much fun as knitting a Landscape Shawl with all its pattern changes. There are sock patterns here, but for those of us who collect and stash sock yarn because it's pretty, this is our book.

I recommend anyone thinking about purchasing this book (or for those who already have) to go to the publisher's website ([...]) and check out all the corrections to the patterns in this book - there are almost 4 pages along with PDF files to be downloaded. It will eliminate many of the frustrations you could experience when your knitting "isn't just right".

Sock yarn is so pretty. It comes in wonderful colors. It is often relatively inexpensive and tempting to buy a single skeins of sock yarn at one's LYS (local yarn store) and at STITCHES conventions (I never miss STITCHES WEST-- <3 it!). Sock yarn is irresistible.

But sometimes one gets tired of making socks. Not everyone is delighted or appreciative of receiving hand knit socks (some people were never taught by their mamas about not looking gift horses in the mouth-- tsk,tsk).

There are lots of really interesting patterns in this book for things OTHER than socks. Lots of excuses to not restrain oneself from adding to that stash of sock yarn when you see some really fantastic yarn.

I haven't tried any yet since I just got the book yesterday so I cannot comment on instructions within but the variety of patterns is very intriguing and there are a lot of them to choose from.

There are only 4 patterns for doll clothes. I wish there had been more patterns for clothes for dolls and stuffed animals (mine wear clothes, don't yours?).

Based on other reviews, I bought the book and waited for it with great anticipation. As the owner of an embarrassing amount of sock yarn in my stash, I had visions of knitting up interesting and unique gifts for all my non-knitting pals. It was so disappointing to actually thumb through the book and see so few unique designs (really, those were more techniques than designs) that were not already available free on the internet. The free patterns may have different names than those listed in this book, but they are easily and readily available.

Most of these patterns are dead simple and uninspired. Out of all the designs, only three were completely new to me, and of those, I would make two. On the other hand, these patterns are all in one place and at the ready for you to cast-on without having to research all the free pattern sites and print your own patterns. Most are easily knit by even the most inexperienced knitter. If you aren't adventurous or are a little timid, this book may be just for you. If you have been knitting for some time and are looking for a challenge, you are better off designing your own knitwear for fingeringweight yarn in sock quantities.

This is the first and probably last one-skein wonder book for me. It it chock-full of eye candy. Many if not most of the designs require 100 or 100+ gram skeins of sock yarn; most widely available sock yarns come in 50 gram skeins. There are several absolutely adorable items for babies, the cutest I have seen in any of the several books I have bought to knit for my now nearly one-year-old great granddaughter. The catch: many are for babies 0-3 months old, an age range when babies seldom wear anything but sleepers and onesies. A few items go up to 6-month size. There isn't a single thing large enough for my great granddaughter. The author could have made the book more useful by increasing the size ranges with the stipulation that additional yarn might be necessary. If one buys the book for directions for hats, gloves, scarves, etc., the book is a treasure. I bought the book for the "children" chapter, so I am disappointed. Judith Durant is a fabulous presenter of designs. I wish that she would quit limiting herself and her readers to the "one skein" concept. My fingers and my brain itch to knit "Sock" It to Me (for Girls) on pages 170-172, but I am frustrated by instructions for a 6 month size when I need them for a size 18-24 months child.
