By Stacey M Smith VINE VOICE on September 6, 2009
Format: Paperback
Great little collection of one/two skein patterns (obviously depends on the yardage). Some patterns call for yarns that come in larger yardage skeins, though they are still techincally just one skein. Everyone needs at least one stash busting books in their knitting library - this is a great choice.

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.

I love the original "One Skein" and have knitted several projects from it (Single Cable Scarf, Spiral Bag). It's one of the first books I reach for when I need to put together a quick gift.

"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.

I purchased this book for my mother-in-law who is a beginning knitter. It has appealing photography, and lots of simple patterns. Some are really cute (cute scarf and an adorable baby sweater), but some are ridiculous (I'm looking at you baby legwarmers and knitted necklace). She enjoyed it I think, and will enjoy it more when she has a grandchild so she can make use of the baby section, but I would never purchase it for myself. Too many books out there with a higher percentage of knittable patterns.

One More Skein is divided into four sections, containing patterns for adult hats, gloves and scarves, some unusual garments for babies, a collection of bags, and household items. Each project requires a couple of skeins of yarn, with the exception of the blanket pattern, which would be great for using up leftover yarns in different colors. My personal favorite is the linen placemat pattern. The appendix includes instructions for specific knitting techniques and a list of suppliers.

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.

Beautifully photographed by John Mulligan.

While I like the idea of projects that can be completed with only one skein, these projects were not worthy even of a beginner.

I checked this book out from the library before I purchased it but there were so many great projects and ideas that I couldn't just borrow it. I needed to own it. The projects are great and very inspiring for future knitting projects. I can't get enough of this book. I would also suggest purchasing her earlier work One Skein: 30 Quick Projects to Knit or Crochet with just one skein projects, I also really enjoyed that one and also had to purchase my own copy after checking it out from the library.

Well I bought this so I could have patterns for all of the single (some discontinued) skeins of yarn that I have around. I was disappointed. I didn't see patterns I would like to make and was wholly unimpressed with the selection of patterns chosen. I'm not saying they aren't great patterns, they just didn't suit my tastes or needs. I returned it.

This book arrived quickly and in very good condition. The projects are trendy, attractive and creative. The photos are great! They clearly show the knitting details that are important to visualize the project details, as well as creating the excitement to make everything in the book! I already started knitting the handwarmers for my boyfriend!
