"I think it is THE perfect knitting gift to give yourself--so you can make all those holiday gifts for others." --Paper Moon Knits"I love when the title of a book tells you the important stuff, and this title tells you right away that the book contains knitted accessories - and that each project takes three skeins or less. That makes it a great way to use up leftover balls you may have in your stash, or to pop in to your local yarn shop and treat yourself without breaking the bank. (It's also a great way to sample a new yarn or splurge a little on a special yarn you've been coveting.) And I love when a book features a variety of styles and techniques, so that you can find lots of things you want to make for yourself as well as gift ideas for other people, as this one does." --Black Bunny Fibers"Knitting superwoman Tanis Gray has another new book, and it is a beauty." --Knitting School Dropout"It's an accessory book that will keep you knitting. The photography is beautiful, the color choices in yarn are beautiful." --Dishcloth Diva Knits On"In this book, Gray has assembled a charming collection of stylish accessories that, well, take only one to three skeins of yarn to create. She taps an extensive network of designers, including Cirilia Rose, Susan B. Anderson and Faina Goberstein, all of whom are eager to show knitters how a minimum of yardage can yield maximum style. Within you'll find fetching shawls, cowls, mittens, hats, shrugs and socks, all photographed up close to show off the details in each project. Yarns run the gamut from lace-weight to bulky. If you serve customers who often wonder what they can make with only a ball or two (or three) of a luscious yarn, this book will help keep their needles clicking all fall and winter long." --"Yarn Market News""In just one compact book, Gray has managed to fit so many wonderful things. This is definitely one knitting book every knitter should own. After all, who says you can't look absolutely fabulous in less than three skeins of yarn?" --AllFreeKnitting.com
