Look what came in the mail yesterday: 101 Desingner One-skein Wonders.

I won it in a contest at Kathleen Taylor's Dakota Dreams blog. She is one of the book's designers. She's also an author, spinner, knitter, two name a few talents. I read her blog every day. Go check it out, there is something for everyone: yarn, paperdolls, recipes. This week she did major surgery on a stranded sweater, reducing it in size by about one-third.

The book has come at a perfect time since I'm doing a lot of spinning of different fibers, often yielding single skeins. All the photos are in the front, in sections determined by yarn weight. There are are scarves, baby sweaters, felted items, hats and much more. Now, if I could just get my summer knitting goals completed!

It's always fun to get a book signed by an author or contributor. I've got several, mainly in my knitting book collection.

That is a great book. I've made several things from it for gifts. Whenever I take a class, I try to have one of the teacher's books to sign.
