Tecno Technique Blanket Class

So I've begun work on my newest endeavor: The Tech Square Afghan by Joanne Clark. So far I've made three of the sqaures and I am having a blast playing around with the different techniques! I especially found the travelling stitches tree square to be quite addictive. Here's a picture of the first square in the book:

I'm knitting it out a wild combination of colors from the wonderfully bright palette of Sheep Shop Yarn Co's Sheep One - this is going to be a bit more colorful than the example shown in the book.

I'll be teaching this book at a monthly "block party" class at knit-one-one in Berkeley and I'm really excited about it. I think this is just the kind of class that I, the type-A knitter, would have loved to take as each square teaches you a different technique. Plus, we'll get to nosh on Sile's shortbread so you can't go wrong there. If you live in the area, I'd love for you to join us! It should be a blast!
