Knitting by Judy @ 7:57 AM

… I truly do miss my brain the most.

As I pulled into Tangle last evening to teach a sock class, I realized that I’d forgotten all of my class materials at home. Oops.

Alice loaned me a package of stitch markers. My wonderful students rallied and let me borrow their books and rounded up a few pencils. Fortunately we had done all of the “sock math” last week, so the lack of calculators didn’t cause too much of a problem.

Blue Moon Seduction in Covelite
Last night the sock magic happened as everyone knit back and forth, back and forth for awhile, and suddenly… there was a heel. I never get tired of the look of delight on people’s faces as they realize that they’re actually knitting a sock — look! There’s a heel! — and it’s not that hard at all! 🙂

A small addition to the collection was waiting in the mailbox at home after class.

Gentle reader, I can’t begin to tell you how much I have lusted after this yarn. This is Blue Moon Seduction in the colorway Covelite. Even though I had to take an icky artificial-light picture, the colors are fairly true on my monitor. It really is that deep chocolate, purple and mauve.

With 50% merino and 50% tencel, it has a wonderful sheen. I can’t wait to knit with it!

Oh… I could just eat it up!

I think I’m going to have to teach a sock class very soon!

Spare me, however, the sensitive souls who deplore technological advance and economic growth over their cell phones on their way to the airport.
