Class Night

Began my Jo Sharp picot edge socks in the recommended Jo Sharp Alpaca Silk Georgette. Think it is one of the first times I have actually used the yarn specified in a pattern but I love the feel. I'd better because these are going to be hand wash only socks. I am using my brand new Knit Picks dpns. Finally decent metal dpns!



Last night was class night at TYL for both Sangeeta and me. Here she is with Megan teaching her how to make a cable.






Carolina has taken several classes with me. This time she is my only student. Here she is in her first Santa Hat from Handknit Holidays by Melanie Falick. Doesn't she look like the perfect elf? Carolina knows every '80s artist and song. Usually she can even tell you what the album cover looked like.

I love my new camera, It is a Canon Power Shot A530. 5.0 megapixels, 4x optical zoom. It has more bells and whistles than I understand but is simple enough for me to manage to take a picture.

Lovely socks Cate! I am a bit of a sock fiend so I need to ask where you found this pattern - I like a picot edge, nicer on the ankles! I love the shade of green you're using too. I have yet to try any Jo Sharp yarns, how are you finding it to work with?

Karin,
The pattern is in the new Jo Sharp magazine - Knit. It is well written. The yarn is a dream to knit. I just wish it was machine washable.
