Michelle's new book is called Building Blocks (see the picture to the right). It is a great little paper back kntting book for a beginner. It has 12 blocks each of which introduces a new technique. As usual, Michelle has paid absolute attention to detail and has instructions (and references to videos) to assist you with the techniques she is teaching. The vlocks are easy, but not boring. I consider myself to be a fairly accomplished knitter and I don't find the blocks boring, but they are not complicated either. The idea is to do a block a month and at the end of 12 months--you have an afghan.
If any of you are interested, let me know and we can do a block of the month KAL-class here at the store. Michelle is not planning on doing a KAL at the moment, but designed this book and project for stores to use. I can order the books and the yarn in the colors you want. Michelle might even come to the store to get us started and sign your books. That would cost all of us a bit more, but would be worth it. What do you think!
