We're so lucky, after being able to take part in Anna Dalvi's blog tour, we can now showcase Michelle Miller's new book, Fickleknitter Design, Volume 1, Leaves.

This collection features eight patterns by the wonderful Michelle Miller, each using less than one skein of luxury sock yarn! She's a genius at figuring out how to put those favorite skeins picked up on your travels for from a local indy dyer to stylish use.

Leaves
The book includes several mouthwatering shawl patterns like the Golden Leaf Shawl (above), plus a lacy bag, cable-y cowl, and comfy slippers. The Leaf theme shows up throughout, with leaf lace motifs to thoughtful plant inspirations.

Knitcircus' own Tracy Harris created the graphic design for Leaves, so we're presdisposed to like it for that reason as well.

You may recognize some of Michelle's design aesthetics at work in the Fall Knitcircus: the August Pansy Shawl!
