What can you do with just one skein of yarn? A lot! Author and designer Cheryl Potter features twenty-seven different patterns, all using one skein. The book is divided by yarn weight: Projects with Lace-Weight Yarns, Fun with Fingering-Weight Yarns, Sport-Weight and DK-Weight Projects, Worsted-Weight Wonders, and Beautiful Bulky Weights. The appeal of Special Little Knits from Just One Skein is that every project in the book would make a great gift for somebody! There are scarves, hats, socks, ponchos, wraps, and even baby/toddler items. While the designs all feature Cherry Tree Hill yarns, you certainly could substitute other yarns.
I made the Sachet Rickrack Scarf based on the design on page 87. I picked up a skein of the Sachet yarn in colorway Champlain Sunset by Cherry Tree Hill at my local yarn shop. The lacy rickrack pattern was a lot of fun to knit! I can't wait to try my hand at knitting some of the socks featured in the book. I particularly like the Potluck Supersocks.
