Tax Class Day 2

Another exciting day of tax review class yielded not only some new knowledge, but also some new knits.
I call it Inspired. And it really is awesome up close. It's a cowl that can be wrapped at least twice.
Here it is laid out for blocking.
And here's a close up of the stitch pattern.

Next I used a lovely Noro cotton, silk, & rayon blend to make another pinch he. It's super lightweight and so soft to the touch.

And then I cast on and started a giant (at least 3 wrap) cowl in a lovely alpaca blend that I can calling Seeded since the whole thing is in seed stitch. It should be super warm and luxurious when it's done.

The teacher did start using knitting in his examples during the later part of the day. It was pretty funny. He did also say that he teaches all over the country and I am not the first person to knit through his classes. It sounded like its not actually all that uncommon and he mentioned how he understood keeping your hands occupied could allow you to listen better (and stay awake). So there you have my 2 day tax review class. Now I am ready for both tax season and Indie Emporium.
