Cat Bordhi, day 2: Mobius knitting

Today’s topic with Cat was mobius knitting. It was another wonderful day of knitting and learning. One of the fun parts for me was seeing all the different works in progress. Here are cowls in progress from two Nancys and Daisy:

I confess to being the guilty party who started the inappropriate laughter mid-afternoon when Cat said something like, “First you need to be sure that you are in the mobius position.” I can be such a child. I did keep knitting once I’d wiped away my tears of laughter. Good thing my friend Louise wasn’t there to keep me in stitches!

I finished my cowl tonight & spent a while using Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off to cast off 400 stitches. I think I’ve fixed that technique in my head too, and I don’t know why I didn’t have it there before. I was knitting today with the lovely Sweet Georgia merino handspun that I made a while back. The pictures don’t really do this thing justice.

It’s 2×2 ribbing in the middle, with some twists, some 1×1 ribbing, and then and expansion back into 2×2 ribbing for a bit of a floppier ending. It looks even better when worn, but I couldn’t manage those types of pictures tonight.

My fingers are still working, which is good. I’m not quite ready for tomorrow’s Sweet Tomato Heel class. I’ve got my sock cast on, but I’d like to get another few inches knit before I start attempting a heel. I’m hoping there will be time in the morning before class starts!

      My brain was feeling a little toasty after day 3, but tomorrow’s only half a day with a recovery afternoon!
