Knitting blocks

In a previous entry "Best Find for a New Knitter", I told you about a book I ordered from Crafter's Choice program. The book, Simple Knitting, shows how to make several types of knitted patterns. I want to make about 4 or 5 of each type mainly to practice them over and over again, but also to use in a knitting block afghan. I think if I do it in two yarn colors it will add even more detail.

I found two colors I really like and think will show the pattern details the best.
I think the green and gray will be nice together. I want to make several of each pattern and do so in both colors, so it will probably be 4 or 6 of each pattern.

It will be great practice for me and in the end make a really cool afghan for my living room (when I have my own place again). I won't actually start this project, I THINK, until I have the baby blanket done. I don't need another reason to slack on finishing that blanket!
