Great winter projects
16 knit projects to keep your hands busy this winter from shawls, scarves, sweaters, vests, socks and afghans. There is even a tote bag!<BR/><BR/>Author bios are found in the first pages of SKEIN FOR SKEIN. Abbreviations and glossary section is located in the back of the book along with a techniques section which is the how-to do a chain stitch or cast-on, etc. Of course, there is a yarn weight chart, explanation of skill levels, metric conversion and a resource page.<BR/><BR/>The projects themselves contain a couple of paragraphs about the project followed by a skill level, size, materials list, gauge and an explanation of any special stitch used in the project. The instructions themselves are clear and easy to follow. The color photo of the finished project will help you be sure you are on the right path as you work the project.<BR/><BR/>Finally, each project has what is called ¿Alternate Picks and Pans¿. This shows two choices of yarns --- one good and one NOT good. This is nice if a particular yarn calls to you. You will know BEFORE you put all that hard work into it that the yarn is best suited for another project.<BR/><BR/>Needles at the ready, set and go for it!
