I went to an awesome class today at the Interweave Knitting Lab.  It was sweater design/mathematics class with…wait for it…Ann Budd.  She was AWESOME.  She was funny and kind and low-key and super informative and practical.

You may remember that it was at last year’s Interweave Knitting Lab that I learned about the Cookie A Sock Club (while taking a similarly awesome class from Cookie herself).  Unlike last year, the market was open on Sunday this year.  I didn’t buy anything but spotted a few patterns knit up that I might want to try, including this one from Quince & Co.  As far as the class itself, I may have worked up the nerve to attempt a sweater for the first time in more than a year. (Two ideas that have long been on my list: the Rocky Coast Cardigan and the Farmer’s Market Cardigan.)  Hopefully that’ll lead to more interesting blog photos than purely knitted hats.  Speaking of hats…

Between the September class with the Yarn Harlot and today’s class with Ann Budd, I’m hoping some of that superstar knitting mojo will rub off on me!
