I am slowly recovering from Sock Summit. I'm going to bed relatively early and sleeping like the dead. I spent most of last week scrambling to get ready to teach my Sat. sock class. I think it went well except for the fact that it was an all day class and the students were completely worn out by the end. I'll have to think about changing the format a little.
After all the intense knitting at Sock Summit, I haven't really picked up my needles since I got home. I did read 4 out of the 5 books that I bought from Powell's. After I finished the last book, I was unpacking from Sock Summit and I came across the cowl that only had 3 rounds left to knit so I finished that.
Pattern: Clemence by Katya Frankel (Ravelry download only)
Yarn: Koigu Kersti Merino Crepe in col k3039; 2 skeins
Needles: 5mm Addi Turbo circs
Notes: The yarn is cable plied and a bit splitty but oh so soft!
Ricky sez, "Not another cowl! At least, it isn't a bib."
When you look at photographs of cowls, do you like to see them modeled (and scrunched up) or do you like them photographed flat? I have a styrofoam head but the neck is kinda short and so is my own. I don't know how much longer Ricky will put up with modeling cowls for me.
And before anyone brings up the subject of Ricky cruelty, I'll have you know that he started purring when I put the cowl on him.
