On the Needles - 4/12

Technically I don't have anything on the needles at the moment, so I am going to show you what I've accomplished this week.  On Wednesday I finished sock#1 for the pooling challenge.  Not much pooling except for around the heel, but I love it anyway. 

Since I had the day off, I immediately cast on for The Loopy Ewe 2nd Quarter Challenge.  It knit up so fast, I ended up finishing it the same day!

Have you taken any of the Craftsy online classes?  I've bought a couple, but the most recent one was Anne Hanson's Button Bands and Buttonholes.  (NOTE:  If you are interested in any of the Craftsy knitting classes, go to their group on Ravelry first.  They have links to get discounts on the classes.  I have never paid full price. Also Craftsy has sales on their classes fairly often, so sign up to get emails from them.)  After watching two lessons, I realized that I had to redo the button band on Charleston Tea.  So I ripped it out yesterday. 

Tonight I plan on casting on sock#2 before second sock syndrome sets in.  If I get that done before May 1st, I'll cast on the hat that goes with the cowl.

Check out what others have on their needles by going to Judy's blog.

Your cowl looks fantastic! I saw that button bands class but didn't sign up for it. Maybe I will so I can learn to do them right . . never done one.

I really like that cowl pattern. Looking at the stranded colorwork you and Judy have done makes me want to jump in. I hope there's no limit to the number of projects a person can start. I have finished a couple recently so I figured I could start a few more. Need to find more time.

Love the way your cowl turned out! Great colors also. Ann Hanson has great patterns; have you ever visited her blog: Knitspot?
