Knit Night Monday

We had a great knit night last night at Barnes & Noble. Between the holiday weekend and bad weather, this is the first time we've met in about 4 weeks. In that time, Sarah finished her Soleil and had started working on some toe ups using the magic loop method so that she could make both socks at once. We also had Elizabeth show up for the first time. She just finished a beginning knitting class and is designing her first sweater. Not only is she gutsy, she's got great taste- she's using an angora blend and knitting with Addi Turbos. I managed to finish sleeve 2 of the Alpaca Silk cardigan.
I can't stress enough how wonderful this yarn is to knit with. After I finished the sleeve, I switched to my socks, and it felt like I was knitting with twine! (You know it's got to be good yarn if it makes Lorna's Laces Shepard Sock feel like it should be used for tying up newspapers rather than knitting.)
