Podcast & KAL

A friend of mine who I teaching to knit wanted to knit a circular blanket. I suggested the Pi Shawl from Knitter's Almanac by Elizabeth Zimmerman. I started my EZ as Pi Blanket on Friday and as of today (Sunday), it is about 10 inches in diameter. The yarn is Moda Dea Sassy Stripes.

Then, I thought that this project would be great for a KAL for the Knits Up Podcast. So if you are interested, check out the podcast and the KAL thread on the Knits Up Podcast group on Ravelry.

Potsdam Socks

I am working on socks for my cousin's daughter who is a music education major at Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam. In the winter, Potsdam gets to be pretty cold. I am knitting a 64 stitch plain sock with a slip stitch heel and traditional shaping. The yarn I am using is Patons Kroy Socks Stripes in the Bronzed Berry Stripes colorway. I am almost to the toe of the first sock.
