First Impressions: So many pretty patterns! I really love these 101 one-skein knitting pattern books. There are so many patterns for that random skein of yarn that you picked up that little yarn boutique or that extra ball of yarn for the shawl that you made last year. As a super extra bonus, the book is less than $20. The Details: This book contains 101 lace designs. There are 12 hat and cap patterns, 9 mitten, glove, and cuff patterns, 7 sock patterns, 11 baby wear patterns, 2 blanket patterns, 2 toy patterns, 19 scarf patterns (I loved the Butterflies Are Free pattern), 9 cowl patterns, 15 shawl and stole patterns, 8 miscellaneous lacy accessories, and 7 miscellaneous home accessories. The patterns are not just for lace weight yarns; there are a variety of yarn weights for the patterns. Unsurprisingly, the patterns are not geared towards men. Please note that if you love charts, not all of the patterns have them. Final Impressions: This is another great 101 One-Skein Wonder books. You can't go wrong with so many patterns for such little money. This is a great book for knitters who like me picks up a skein of yarn every once in a while (or more often) without a pattern in mind and doesn't know what to do with the skein later.

Lace One-Skein Wonders 101 Projects Celebrating the Possibilities of Lace by Judith Durant This follows the series of one skein wonders, in different formats: knit, crochet and now lace. Love the sections, broken up into: head to toe( has things for heads, hands and feet), knits for kids (baby wear), it's a wrap (scarves, cowls, shawls, wraps) and accessories(bags, headbands, etc), and for the home( pillows, bath sets, cozies). includes an appendix showing diagrams on many techniques and helpful information about certain stitching. All the items are knit using a lacy pattern. There are MANY hats to select from. All are charted and written out with row by row instructions. My favorites are the dishcloths in the bath sets. I like this book as a resource better than the standard knit one skein wonders because the patterns are challenging and not hard to follow.

This is probably my favorite so far of the One-Skein Wonders books. It has many lovely lace patterns to choose from. I can't decide which to start first! The patterns are all lovely. The charts and written instructions are both easy to follow.  The pictures showcase the lace projects perfectly. All in all, this is a great book to have for any knitter's library. I also really appreciate the glossary in the back with it's explanations and illustrations of many cast on techniques, crochet stitches, and , my all time favorite in this glossary, the Kitchener stitch. I never can remember the technique to finish a toe, and now I have it at hand any time I need it. I received an ebook copy of this for review purposes. Even though I received the book for free, the opinions stated are my own. I received no compensation for posting a review.

Dissapointed in the purchas. The book itself is a good one but the printing of the patterns is too small. Without the pattern you cannot do the piece. Mostly useless!

There are a lot of nice patterns in this book and I love having patterns on my Nook. This is a long book with a LOT of patterns so finding the pattern you want is difficult. The thing I would like to see is a photo with each table of contents link- it would make it easier to find the patterns I want.

Disappointed that I was unable to view nook book online. The text showed, but no pictures. Tech support was unable to resolve so I received a refund after 2 months. So sad!

Graphs are used in order to knit lace, if you can not see the graphs to knit, the pattern is useless. Also, there is no way to mark the graphs as you knit. Buy the print book not the e-book.
