One of my evening things was very interesting...I gave a brief talk about Web 2.0 right after Ward Cunningham, who is the inventor of the wiki. Not wikipedia, something called the Wiki Wiki Web. Anyway...pretty amazing. He was quite a character and it was fun to chat with him...we ended the evening with a discussion of "Cult of the Amateur" and all in all it was an interesting night.
Some knitting has been happening.Saxon Sox: done! This is truly one of my favorite sock patterns of all time. And I love the yarn, and the color. All in all, I have to say that these might be my favorite socks ever! Ever!
And my mindless sock is this pair in Red Hot Chili Pepper, from the amazing Wollmeise. These are very bright and happy. And Wollmeise's skeins are 510 yards, at least twice as much as I need, so i can get two pairs out of one skein OR .... wait for it.... I could save up the leftovers for a Charlotte's Web shawl! That's the plan right now. Likely to change.
Very little has been done on the lace stole. I also started a sweater from the new Debbie Bliss magazine...the peplum cardigan...but I've done about two inches of that and so there's not much to see.
