Down by the Old Pool Yard

Hi Knitters,
Well, that was one long swim meet today clocking in at almost 6 hours. That's long for an outdoor summer meet against only one team. The other team is gigantic with hundreds of swimmers and relays up to H and I in the alphabet. Our team has A,B and sometimes C relays.

Luckily I packed my handspun sock project in my bag before we left. We found a shady spot tucked in by an enormous pine tree to put our chairs. There I sat in between events and knit away the hours. I am almost done with the toe now. It's so pretty.

I cast on my Ravellenics project very early this morning. I was too tired last night after a late dive meet and then dinner when we got home. My goal for the Ravellenics is to knit up all of the sample baby cardigans for my October 28th class at Vogue Knitting Live in Chicago. My toy class is sold out already but there are still spots in my design your own baby cardigan class on that Sunday afternoon.

I'll share the different versions of the cardigan I will be bringing to class on here as I finish them up. I already have one basic cardigan finished and it is adorable, a real staple kind of item to have in your knitting bag of tricks. There will be lots of options to choose from when the students create their own cardigan.

I am really excited about this new class. It is fun to change things up for sure. I hope to see you there if you can make it. I have had a few people ask if they can bring books for me to sign and the answer is, yes, of course. That is always fun and we'll have time to sign during the class as people are knitting away I am sure.
