• next is the special full day east end of LI class, July 9th, in the good company of Kay Gardiner of Mason Dixon Knitting
. Deets & sign up here.
Two spaces open. Three if you need'em. It's worth a day trip from NY if you'd prefer not to take a whole weekend away. (jitney! they drive, you knit! win win! I'll even pick you up and take you back to the jitney depot.)
shawl in Noro Taiyo,in full review.
yarn: Noro Taiyo sock, colorway # 2 (I think)(does it matter, they are all so....Noroluscious)
needles: us 7
yardage left over: none, zero, zippo, nada. In fact I scrounged several yards off other skeins to complete the picot bind off. Careful scrutiny reveals the color change in picotland, above.
finished size: just right
final thought: The Taiyo Sock was incredibly irritating to knit--it spun back on itself like an energized single. (and I can't say that phrase enough, it sounds so weird. Energized single.) But oh the colors and changes? I can forgive Mr. Noro his materials' faults for the joy of the shifting hues.
• I'm on to another shawl, big rectangular, with my big spool of Valley Colrain yarn. Loving the knitting but not loving working off a spool. Keeps toppling.
• Joan Tapper & I are setting up our events & booksignings in celebration of our new book!
