Follow your passion, and success will follow you.
Marilyn Buster finished a red version of our workshop sock. Here it is. She knit it with worsted weight Chaco (Cascade 220) on size 2 Inox needles. It is prettier in real life than in this photo—I had to tweak the photo to make the texture show since red is hard to photograph. She reports that the Inox needles worked great and the heel fits well.
I got to see it and her in person last weekend at our knitting retreat in New Harmony, Indiana. When I held the sock, I could imagine how warm it would be inside Wellies during a snow-shoveling session.
Our New Harmony retreat was wonderful. The only problem—the time passed so fast. The weather sparkled, the little town was interesting and, as usual, I blew my budget buying yarn. I came home with 800 meters of Fiddlesticks, Country Silk and a head full of ideas. I’m making myself wait to start knitting the new yarn until I finish a couple of other projects.
I’m preparing for a workshop in Mansfield, Ohio this weekend. We will do the non-stop sock heel on Friday night and Fair Isle knitting on Saturday. Jolene Treace is going with me and will present information about using color. Her web log is at this LINK.
I have a few things left to do on my new eBook and it will be ready to test and produce. I’ll have more information about it for you soon.

Katherine, thank you so much for including a dial-up version of the Gansey sock on the Dayton Guild website. The original version was estimated to take more than two hours to download. The condensed version landed in about three! I’m looking forward to trying it out.
I’ve owned your “A Time to Knit Stockings” book for a long time. So long, in fact, that the rubber band snapped the last time I pulled it from the shelf. Cleverly designed, inside and out!

It was great to see you in New Harmony but I regret not being able to visit longer. Lisa gave me the blog address and I have enjoyed going throught it. I would like to get some copies of your book on socks if you still have some. I know some sock knitters who would enjoy it as would I. You’re right the sock Marilyn knit was just stunning in person.
