Here are my Aquaphobia Socks:
I also recently knit up a Dustland hat for myself using Swan's Island Organic Merino Worsted.
I make that "hat head" distinction because - drumroll, please - I have also been in the process of writing up a pattern for a slouchy hat! The first version smooshes my hair beyond help, requiring that I continue to wear the hat until I can get my next shower. I'm currently working on my third prototype and sampling a different yarn. While the pattern's simple enough, I want to try do a decent job with it. It's my first foray into designing - at least that I've gotten beyond the sketchbook stage. It's not, however, the only design I've been working on. I also have some armwarmers knit up, but I need to work out some details with sizing and finishing. My desire to keep these private until they are finished is part of the reason I've been so quiet, though I also have to admit that it's been more an issue of carving out enough time to say hello. My apologies.
I also got to teach a class somewhere in there! It was a lot of fun, and I'm glad I had such wonderful help to step in and answer questions. Here's a special shout out to the lovely folks at the Wooly Monmouth! I learned a few things in the process - important things like the fact that I have a crooked mouth when I'm speaking.
