Saturday, and day four of the Creativ Festival. I’ve got another class with Jennifer Aikman-Smith this morning, and a needlecase class with the lady who designed this beautiful biscornu (it is a companion piece to it too). Today is also the day that I finally get to do some shopping. I did spend some time last weekend looking through my stash as a reminder that I don’t need anything (except a piece of Christmas tree green fabric to stitch up a small design before December), so I’m hoping my will power has been built up high enough.
I will also be meeting up with a knitting friend from Ravelry today, the lady who I knit socks for once in a while. And, wouldn’t you know it, I’ve got another pair of socks done for her.
The pattern is Everyone Outta the Pool by Artsygal, and it available from Ravelry for US$3.99. The yarn is Panda Cotton in colourway Circus, which is a lot like a pastel rainbow that is heavy on the yellows and oranges. And it pools something awful. Before switching to this pattern, I tried knitting a plain pair of socks, and it looked awful. Check out the cuffs to see what I mean. I wasn’t able to tame the pooling up there.
So, off to classes again. Goodness, I’m getting tired, but it sure is fun!
