I had a great time at the class and have to thank Nancy and Carolyn of Common Threads for hosting the workshop. I learned toe-up sock knitting and different kinds of toes. I also mastered the provisional cast-on that Cat explains in her book -- I just needed a little visual push and I got it. I also got my feet wet knitting socks on two circular needles, although I did my sample sock in class on my double points. I didn't want to get bogged down in too many new things at once. But, I am now ready to tackle Cat's book on knitting socks on two circulars. (I know my converted friends are cheering.) Hey, I still love my dpn's. And I started "Bartholomew's Tantalizing Socks" from the new book. The socks in Cat's book for the most part do not use the traditional heel flap. It's a really neat way to knit socks. She also had all of the socks from the book with her and told us the story behind each one. She was a delightful, patient teacher and I was so glad that I had the opportunity to take the class.
Over the weekend, I also finished the pair of ribbed socks I had been working on.
I am now going to turn my attention to finishing a cabled shawl I have been working on that is knit with some very dark brown buttery handspun alpaca from "Shadow", fiber I bought at Black Sheep Gathering two years in a row. Happy knitting and spinning!
