My toy Octopus pattern is one of many great one-skein projects in the newly-released One-Skein Wonders for Babies.
Little Lovey (or Kleine Acht, as I like to think of her), is made of Classic Elite Yarns Seedling Hand Paint. It’s a quick project with very little sewing — something of a novelty in the world of hand-knit toys.

I’ve had a copy of the book for a week or two now, and I’m pleased to say that it is chock-a-block full of great designs.
A few of my favorites:
The Smocked Lace Hat and Mittens (p.10) by Terry Morris caught my eye right away. I love the charming edge and flower topper on the hat.
The Baby Crown Tee (p. 53) by Jenise Hope is so freaking adorable, and looks like one of those quick-ish knits that will impress as a gift.
Robin Allen‘s Happy Hat makes me smile! Fabulous use of knits and purls to make a graphic design.
