Knitting Block by Block: 150 Blocks for Sweaters, Scarves, Bags, Toys, Afghans, and More Hardcover – November 9, 2010
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

The yarn suggested is Cascade 220, not superwash. The colors listed do not match Cascades color list at all. The colors given are NOT for the sample afghan shown; I loved the colors in the sample knitted afghan and I am not getting it. Blocks knitted as directed created different sized blocks. After a lot of reworking and reediting, I am able to create same sized blocks.
They are many great ideas, but beware of the patterns.
The instructions are clear and well written.
When I say however, that it is confusing I refer to the fact that so many of the blocks have different cast on numbers, so when I finished my first three blocks for the afghan project in the book, they came out in different sizes using the same needles and yarn. I ended up adding garter stitch borders to some to make them come out even. I am left feeling that I am not executing my blocks in some way, though since they specify different numbers it makes sense for them to end up different sizes.
There are many many blocks in this book...my favorites happen to be the ones with i-cord and ideas of how one might use them...directions call for knitting with Cascade 220 ..a lovely yarn that is not only beautiful, comes in many colors, but is quite affordable.
There are directions for all the blocks as well as for the patterns of garments made using the blocks...
WELCOME BACK, Ms. Epstein....and thank you...
The I cord blocks are absolutely fantastic. On some of them I put a little piping inside to hold and shape better. My six year old neice claims that when it is finished I have to but her name on it because it will be going on her bed all the time. Thanks Ms. Epstein for helping me to make a family heirloom that I hope will last for generations.
