I haven't written here since June and I think that's because I now lurk on Ravelry way too much. I still haven't done much with my profile there, either.

Summer was good--my trip up east was very relaxing and my class in London went quite well. I had a great group of students who all got along, showed up for everything and did all their work so far---they still have a final paper due, but I am confident in them.

London was busy and crowded. I spent two months there in 1999 doing some administrative work for the university during my sabbatical, but it seems busier to me now. Probably a combination of being 8 years older and going in August rather than in March.

In any event, I have been knitting. I've completed a pair of Monkey socks in Tofutsi---a yarn that was okay, but I would not buy again.

And a pair of Not Cable Socks by Sockbug, a free pattern online. I made these in Lorna Laces, which I would buy again.

I also completed a turtleneck from Erika Knight's Classic Knits. This is done is Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted. I may frog this.

I did frog a sweater I made a few years ago and reknit it into a shawl collar cardigan I found online.

It's kind of 80s, but I know I'll wear it a lot. I hear the 80s are back, anyway.

I'm currently working on a Forest Canopy Shawl in a sportweight yarn called Pomfret. I found it at a yard sale.

You've had a busy summer! I think Ravelry could suck my time up too, which is why you won't find me there very often...

You're back! Nice knitting!

I signed up for Ravelry on August 4, I still have a ways to go before I get an invite! :-)

I really like your Red shawl collar sweater. i have some wool in multicolour. Do you thing it will look good in 2-3 colours pattern? Did you get the pattern from the net. I would love to knit somthing like this. Can you share the web address where I can find this pattern.

I don't know how to get in touch with you, Aoide, so I hope you see this. Here's the link:

I think two or more colors would be lovely.
