Michele has been an avid knit and crochet designer for Annie's since the 1980s. As she says, "There is nothing I'd rather do!" Michele's grandmother taught her and her sister to knit when Michele was just 5 or 6 years old. While Michele loved knitting right away, she didn't know much more than the knit stitch until she was 19. Her motivation for learning more about knitting came when another girl gave her boyfriend, Dick, a pair of handknit mittens. She knit Dick a new pair so he'd have to throw out the other pair. Her hard work must have paid off, as she and Dick have been happily married for many years and have three grown children and six grandchildren.

In her early 20s, Michele taught herself how to crochet, and now she equally loves both crafts. She has designed 100s of patterns and has been published countless times by Annie's, Better Homes and Gardens, Coats & Clark, Universal Yarn and Herrschners, among others.

Thank you for making a knitting class for amigurumi. I liked how each piece was knitted flat, forcing me to work on my seaming! I also learned how to embroider, as that isn't something I ever did before. Wonderful instructions and I really liked how much detail was given for every step.

I don't know if the instructor noticed that the instructions for Row 23 and 25 says K1, K2tog 6 times instead of "all the way across" in Billy Bunny.

I have found this class excellent. The instructions are easy to follow and so much detail.
The colours used show off the little animals very well.
I would recommend this class to anyone who has ever attempted to knit amigurumi.
The animals knit up quickly with great results.
