    Worth the Price

    This book is nice sized, has nice variaty and nice patterns. The patterns are very nice and clear, and they are almost all done in the round. The organization of this book is nice because they sort the patterns by weight of yarn. My only negative comment is that it is in paperback so it won't sit open while trying to read a pattern. Overall a worthwile purchace.

    Worth the Price

    This book has great projects for all of us with a ball yarn leftover from another project. The designs are creative and are rated by skill. Best book I ever bought for the money.

    Another Great Addition to the One Skein Wonder Series

    I love the One Skein Wonders series and 101 Yarn Shop Favorites is another great addition to the series. The patterns in this book are all submitted by yarn shops all over the United States as their favorites. While there are all sorts of small projects in this volume, the shawlettes and scarfs always catch my eye. But two other attractive projects are Monica's Flowers and the tea cozy. Both of these have been added to my "To Try" list. These are good, solid patterns for those of us who carry a small project around with us all the time or who typically buy one skein to many for project!

    Wonderful

    I have been searching for some new patterns for hats and scarves, especially. This book provided those variations and more! And all use a minimal amount of yarn. I especially appreciated the listing of yarn shops. I went in search of the shop nearest where I live and was delighted at what I found there.

    Disappointing

    I have "Lace" and "Crochet" OSW and love them both. Why, then, you may ask, am I so disappointed with this one? You might notice the other reviews are written by folks with print versions of this book. My review is about the Nook version and, unlike the other two books mentioned, it is missing the color photos. They exist--they are referred to in each pattern--they just aren't included and this oversight is not mentioned in the book description! And this makes a big difference in the usability of the nook--the low contrast pix provided do NOT do the job of conveying what the finished product looks like.
