Every knitter understands the allure of sock yarn. It slips easily into a handbag, comes in endless variations, and represents a dazzling array of possibilities. Best of all, it's relatively inexpensive, making it an affordable splurge. As a result, many knitters find themselves with veritable collections of sock yarn with dozens in their stash. Fortunately, sock yarn can be used for more than simply keeping toes toasty. In Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders, veteran knitter Judith Durant has chosen not simply inventive sock patterns but also more than 5 dozen inspired patterns for other items that can be created from a single skein of sock yarn. This book offers one-of-a-kind patterns for baby clothes, mittens, scarves, hats, jewelry, cozies, bags.even a dog sweater and a lampshade!
