Who doesn't love a "Best of" compilation?  Your favorite songs, YouTube videos, poems, movies, even your favorite recipes, all ​gathered together in one easy reference. What's not to like?

And if you love a "Best Of," you're not alone.  What was the best selling album of the entire 20th century in the U.S.?  Not an album of new songs, but The Eagles' best-of compilation, Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975).   The album was certified 29 x Platinum in 2006, which means it has sold 29 million copies - and continues to sell!

Factoid:  Michael Jackson's Thriller is the best selling album worldwide. At the end of the century Thriller had 46 million album sales while The Eagles' Their Greatest Hits had 40 million.

So why isn't there a "best of knitting"?  There should be!  And, now there is.  You know about Michelle Hunter's hugely popular Progressive Needles Knit-Alongs ... she is the master of mystery, and teases you with a promise of a really great project, then releases pieces of the pattern weekly.  But her KALs are more than just a pattern, Michelle also includes great videos of the project, so it's like getting the pattern and a private instructor to sit alongside you and help you along the way.

Michelle's new book The Best of Knit Purl Hunter contains 25 of the best patterns from her Knit-Alongs.  So what are the 25 patterns?  No longer a mystery ... you can checkout pictures of the projects and a video compilation here ...

​The Best of Knit Purl Hunter

The book contains stunning photographs of each project so you can see each item before you decide which project to knit.  Plus, the projects have been re-knit in fresh new color combinations, so even if you made the design during the actual Knit-Along, they will still be new to you!

The hard copy book will be available soon (early May).  You can pre-order your book now or wait until the eBook and individual PDFs are available on Ravelry the first week of July.

Happy Knitting! ... Scout
