Review: Crochet One-Skein Wonders by Judith Durant and Edie Eckman

Finally, a One-Skein Wonders book just for crocheters! Edie Eckman and Judith Durant offer 101 great crochet projects--from jewelry and scarves to bags, hats, dresses, and home dec items--that each use just one skein of yarn. Whatever your experience level, you'll find something here to delight you!

E-galley received for review.

I enjoy crocheting but I have close to zero patience for lengthy projects so I thought I'd enjoy this.

This was a variety of projects that range from thread doilies to lacy scarves to stuffed animals so there is a quite a bounty of projects to choose from. This did not mean that I actually found any projects that I wanted to try though. There was a pattern for slipper socks that looked interesting but, alas, it was only for size 8 feet with no instructions for smaller or larger sizes which was quite disappointing. Many of the projects were very crunchy granola (fingerless gloves and scrunchies) which also significantly narrowed the options.

Overall, this was an interesting read and should provide at least a few ideas for crocheters. It is definitely worthy of a browse through.
