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.

Knit New Haven

My wife and I just completed a trip from St. Louis to New Haven CT to visit our son who just began a Masters Degree in Flute performance at Yale's School of Music. We drove to take in the fall foliage and were not disappointed. Spectacular! He had a concert in New Haven on friday and sunday at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center and we went to hear him play with the Philharmonia Orchestra of Yale with John Adams as guest conductor with the Brentano String Quartet. The program was Stavinsky's Orpheus, Adams' Absolute Jest and Beethoven's Symphony No. 4 in B flat major, Op. 60.

Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow. . .

I head off to my journey driving from Chicago to my new home in central Florida. I am staying with one of our knitting buddies in Atlanta, Lou (AKA olddancer on Ravely) and I am really looking forward to that. The wine is in the car and so is my knitting stuff. It's funny. With all the items that I handled, and I handled all of them, it brought back so many memories. It's amazing how we have "snapshot" moments in our lives that come flooding back to us as one touches an item, or smells a scent. I also found things that I lost many years ago and eventually bought new.
