This weekend is the annual knitting retreat of our guild, organized by LYSO Stephanie Olivo. Stephanie always performs miracles, and due to her organizational skills I have had the good fortune to be able to take workshops with such knitting luminaries as Lucy Neatby, and Candace Eisner Strick. (I missed the one where they had Judy Pascale...)
This weekend, we will delve into Estonian Knitting (6 hr workshop on Saturday), and all manner of heels and toes on socks (3 hrs on Sunday).
I plan to have all my Nancy Bush books autographed :)
Of course, due to the fact that I let myself get sidetracked by knitting 12 hats, I did not make much progress on my socks from Knitting Vintage Socks.
I did, however, finish this:
200 stitches on a size 10.5 needle, Lily Chin Nolita (?) and debbie bliss cashmerino aran (black). Alternating stripes of garter and stockinette, the black st st recedes in between the colorful novelty. I added little ruffly edges.
I have to run now and go grocery shopping, you know, stock up for the family so they won't starve, and get packed. The knitting is the most essential thing, of course. At least this time, I'll know what to bring along:
I'll see you all Sunday night.
