Speaking of knitting more ~ I recently had the opportunity to take classes with Stephen West and Steven Berg. I am already seeing their influence in my knitting, and feel myself moving in a new direction, toward free-form knitting. However, before I go off the deep end, I wanted to pay homage to this group by joining in the Knit-a-long! I chose a beautiful Madeline Tosh Sock yarn (from stash!) after looking through some of the finished projects on Ravelry, and seeing so many beautiful shawls knit in this yarn.
I also have a new friend to keep me company tonight while I knit. His name is Charlie Pickle, and he's a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. We're puppy-sitting for the weekend, but we are mighty tempted to keep him, and tell his family that he ran away! (Just a joke, we'd never actually do it.)

OK, off to cast on! I can't wait to see everyone's projects.
