"I'm so excited."

The Pointer Sisters song title says it all. Less than 24 hours until Quinton and I leave for Rocky Mountain Men's Knitting Retreat.

Update on Bow Tie

And now, for something totally different -

I am planning to knit a pair of socks [Quinton would now be saying, "Of course."] but the change is that I'm using a commercial pattern vs. designing my own.

Bow tie

Finally started the bow tie I mentioned an interest in last January on another posting. The KnitPicks pattern is not as well written as it could be since it is very yarn specific for their product.

Was I an inspiration?

I just read about a new Ann Budd book, over at 'Knitting Daily', where she had sock designers contribute patterns.

Elizabeth Taylor has died.

Just saw the news release that a great actress and humanitarian has died. I'm not surprised, given her ill health for many years. Still, she will be missed.

Class starts tomorrow

HI, everybody - I'm starting a class tomorrow. No, not taking ... teaching: I'll be instructing a class based upon my Split Reed pattern as shown in the "Think Outside the Sox" book from XRX.

Hi there, everybody. My favorite LYS just got in a very reasonably priced shipment of NORO Sock Yarn and I am tempted to break my "No buying until stash is reduced!" rule.
