The Pointer Sisters song title says it all. Less than 24 hours until Quinton and I leave for Rocky Mountain Men's Knitting Retreat.

Well...the tie was knitting up fairly well.

I am planning to knit a pair of socks [Quinton would now be saying, "Of course."] but the change is that I'm using a commercial pattern vs. designing my own. [Okay, pick up your jaws - and knitting needles - off the floor.] It's the traveling stitch design from Mountain Colors for the "Jonesy's Toe-up Socks." I'll be knitting from the top-down, adapting the twisted stitch for my lefthandedness, and think it will be nice in the jawoll yarns colorway of muted blues, greens and browns.

Finally started the bow tie I mentioned an interest in last January on another posting. The KnitPicks pattern is not as well written as it could be since it is very yarn specific for their product. Plus, I feel the gauge notations [which were already updated once] are all gobbledy-gook...my gauge swatch didn't come out to their specifics but, if it had, the finished tie would be appropriate for a clown's costume.

I just read about a new Ann Budd book, over at 'Knitting Daily', where she had sock designers contribute patterns.

I just got a KnitPicks Harmony 40" circular needle in 3mm [the larger US2] last night.

Just saw the news release that a great actress and humanitarian has died. I'm not surprised, given her ill health for many years. Still, she will be missed.

Hi, everybody. I had a friend tell me about the "Wear Purple on October 20" movement that just started in conjunction with the Facebook "It Gets Better" Project.

HI, everybody - I'm starting a class tomorrow. No, not taking ... teaching: I'll be instructing a class based upon my Split Reed pattern as shown in the "Think Outside the Sox" book from XRX.

Hi there, everybody. My favorite LYS just got in a very reasonably priced shipment of NORO Sock Yarn and I am tempted to break my "No buying until stash is reduced!" rule.
