Speed Knitting

I taught last night, and decided to knit along with the class. I started an afghan sweater on Lion Brand Speed Stix size 3 needles using six strands of Lion Brand Homespun held together fingering weight yarn. I completed it 15 rows in an hour about 2 hours. I am loving it so far. I’ll need to do about 10 rows a day to be ready for the next class.

I talked to Claire today, and am planning to teach the EZ seamless yoke sweater soon. I’ll need to make a demo for that, as the one I made (several years ago) really is in LB Homespun. I may go up to *gasp* DK weight for that one. I am planning a solid body with variegated yoke.

The socks continue to come along. I am going to cast mine on today, using yet another toe-up technique, found here. DD#1 and I will be working this at the same time.

Family news: DD#1 now has a beau and is planning to stay here. It’s the fellow she liked so much last time she was here.
