Less interesting than the original One Skein book. A few original patterns but overall a lot of déjà vu pieces. I'll definitely do the hot-water bottle cover (I know one or two friends who have been dying to have one). The fingerless gloves are blah, the baby patterns are okay but nothing to write home about. The pictures are beautiful, the instructions clear, the yarn choices are fine. It's a beautiful book but it didn't much to offer me as a knitter unlike the original One Skein.
