Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
"Two needles and one (or one more) skein of yarn--the possibilities never cease to amaze me," writes Leigh Radford in the introduction to her new book. Radford's fascination with the creative potential of these raw materials is evident throughout One More Skein , where she melds the alternative approach to knitting and felting she introduced in AlterKnits and AlterKnits Felt with the magic she worked with a single skein of yarn in the bestselling One Skein.
One More Skein features 30 diverse projects that can be completed with one or two average-sized skeins of yarn or multiple bits of leftover yarn. Projects include an earflap hat sized for the whole family; fingerless mitts; sweaters, britches, and capelets for baby; hemp jewelry embellished with jump ring "beads"; a felted, pleated sleeve to dress up a vase; and a multicolored blanket worked from assorted stash yarn. All of them are quick and relatively easy to make, without sacrificing beauty or ingenuity.
