101 Luxury One-Skein Wonders!!!!!

I heard rumors that it was out there, but I had yet to see a copy of Storey's 101 Luxury One-Skein Wonders ( ). Yesterday's mail brought my contributor's copy- and I can only say: WOW!!!

Judith Durant and the folks at Storey did a fantastic job with this book- I have one pattern in it, and I want to knit all 100 others! Everything about this book is gorgeous, from the color palette on the cover, to the layout, to the range of one-skein patterns.

My pattern is the Mock-Cable Alpaca Tam (upper left in the picture). Remember when I was in Tam Mode last fall? That's when I designed this hat, using the absolutely yummy Marshmallow (80% Alpaca, 20% Merino) from Decadent Fibers (link in Stash Enhancers). I am currently in Lace Mode (if you hadn't noticed), and there is plenty to feed that addiction in this book- lovely scarves and shawls, and I need to knit all of them. But if you're in the mood for smaller projects, there are also hats, mittens, vests, pillows, bags, baby items, toys, and jewelry, using luxury yarns in all weights.

I love this book, and I am very proud to be a contributor.

So- Calling OZ KNITTER- I can finally send your prize copy of this book. e-mail me (kathleentaylor1952 at gmail dot com) with your address and I'll get it on the way.

Beautiful book, Kathleen! I actually picked it up at our local Chapters today, and got home to find your post...clearly a case of great minds, etc. And yes, this book is stoking my current case of startitis! The lace pieces, especially....
