If you haven't heard of Fickle Knitter Designs, you're in for a real treat with the release of Michelle's first pattern book! If you are already a fan of Michelle's I'm sure you'll enjoy her first book too! Michelle specializes in projects using one skein of yarn or less and her first book includes 8 knitting projects which range from cowls to shawls to flats and wristlets. It really is a must have for all of you looking for a set of projects to do with all your sock yarn you have in your stash!
I had the pleasure of first meeting Michelle at TNNA this year and shortly after she released her first book entitled Leaves - Fickle Knitter Design Volume 1. Michelle, like Anna, also holds various science degrees including her Masters Degree in Physics which also translates into her ability to write up a clear and concise pattern that's easy to follow. Michelle has other books on the horizon as well - you really should keep track of her designing if you aren't already!
Included in her book is a gorgeous shawl she named Golden Leaf and made from Zen Yarn Garden's Serenity Silk yarn. It was a real pleasure to be included in her book and I hope you will all buy the book to knit not only the shawl in Zen Yarn Garden yarn but all the other projects she has for you - they are all adorable!
Michelle has graciously offered two prizes for our blog writing today! These will include one of each:
E-Book Copy of Leaves
Hard Copy of Leaves
