summer's end

The new quarter started yesterday with surprisingly little fanfare. I had forgotten how much I enjoy running into my former students at the start of the new school year. They're filled with so much enthusiasm and they look full of energy. A completely different state from when I last saw them during finals week.

I've been knitting like a fiend lately, but no photos this post. With any luck I'll have two FOs to share by week's end.

Have you seen this yet?

Pam Allen's Knitting Needle Bag is the latest free pattern from Knitting Daily (download here). It's in the new Bag Style book, too. What a hideous name for a book, BTW! I'm definitely knitting one (or two or even three). This will necessitate a yarn store trip, though, since my stash doesn't contain any chunky yarn in the requisite quantity (about 330 yds, I think). Maybe some Cascade 109? I've never tried it.

More things coming soon chez Caffeinated Yarn:
- a book/yarn contest
- book reviews/recommendations
- an awesome pesto recipe
