the new yoga....?

Greetings all,

Sorry not to have posted for a while. I'm still here and I'm still knitting - and at last have started Dad's Christmas Cardigan before december so there is a chance it will get finished.

Just came across this article and though you might like to see it:

Latest project - Castiel

Modeled by dear friend/recipient.
This hat took me forever since I was working on it as we listed and sold our home in Burbank and moved to San Luis Obispo. I used double pointed needles and Mirasol Tupa 50/50 merino/silk. Love the yarn. It's a Woolly Wormhead pattern called Castiel. I had to rescue the project from catastrophic stitch droppage a couple times.

Evil Genius Socks

Since June I have been struggling to find a pattern or formula to make what I consider a sock that fits and will nicely adjust to needle size and yarn thicknesses. Thanks Ken in Main for all your help and the suggestion to use Yarmando's Evil Sock Genius lessons. He just makes a sock make sense for me. I especially like that once the heel is turned there is no annoying hole with which to contend, which seems to be a common struggle among novice sock knitters like me.
