I've been working with Margaret Radcliffe's new book, The Essential Guide to Color Knitting Techniques and really like it. To practice some of the techniques, I made a number of afghan blocks for the Stettenheim Stitchers' charity project.

I spent some of my vacation this year working on the first 3 chapters of Deborah Chandler's Learning to Weave. It's the perfect sort of primer for me. I wove a sampler, using Harrisville's Shetland Style in Midnight Blue and Wedgewood (discontinued). It isn't fulled it yet. The little Harrisville loom I bought from Elisa which was really fun to use.
