Today has been a sorting & thinking day. Now that one big project is done, I am looking at what to concentrate on next. I keep all sorts of knitting-related lists on my Palm Treo, and as I went through the yarn & projects stored in little hidey-holes and some out in the open (trying to excavate the coffee table), I added things that I had forgotten to add to my inventory as they arrived, and deleted some things from my Works in Progress list (rrrriiiippppp!).

I have been asked to teach socks at our guild meeting this coming Thursday, so I have pulled out my sock books and the 3 pair I have currently in progress. And I swatched for another pair, so I can demonstrate casting on for two socks at once, toe-up on Magic Loop, using Queen Kahuna's Aloha Cast-On. One of the in-progress pairs could be finished by Thursday if I just sit down and work on it, but then again, it would give me something to show them for Magic Loop once you get to the sock legs. I think I'm just going to take enough needles & yarn that I can show them whatever method they want to learn, including dpns and 2 circs, toe-up, cuff-down, whatever. It's a small enough group that I could do all of the above.

The stole has passed its quality inspection:

I pinned it to 27" wide, but I just could not get it 83" long -- it's about a foot short, and I don't care! It more than covers my wingspan, and Mom & I are the same height, so it will be fine.

Your mother's stole is stunning. I'm sure she'll be thrilled.
