I have two kids, who happen to both be on summer break, so that means that I am always on the go. We are always traveling from one place to another, headed to one activity to the next.  Of course, that cuts into my knitting time, but the perfect solution is to have quick one skein knitting patterns on hand.  Not only are the easier to transport, but they are also easier to pick up and put down as needed.  Now, while the kids are running in the playground, I can keep an eye on them and sit in the shade with a great small, easy knitting pattern. I have collected some of AllFreeKnitting‘s most popular one skein knitting projects for you below, which I have actually made quite a few of myself – they are solid “go-to” patterns for me.
