In awe!

Thanks to a dear friend, I've been enjoying the amazing wisdom of Elizabeth Zimmerman.  I find myself enthralled and watching these DVD's over and over again just wanting to get every little piece of advice.  She is amazing and makes me want to learn to knit continental style....who would have though?  So now I want to cast on for one of her EPS sweaters.  Totally based off percentages and no pattern really needed....just amazing!

While watching, I've been working on these:
They are the Anniversary socks from Favorite Socks! (be sure to check the errata if you make them though)  I'm enjoying the nice details of these socks and loving the little cable without a cable needle!

Here is the plain back of the socks!  I'm using undyed Louet Gems yarn.  I'll keep you posted on my progress!

I'm a huge EZ fan myself. I'd love to get the videos someday. I got 3 of her books 2 years ago for Christmas and it was awesome.

Another huge EZ fan. I've been slowly collecting her books.

Love the new socks. Both pair are very pretty. :)

I know you're enjoying that dvd, I have it and I just love her voice. I wish our library would get all of them!!

I completely missed this post!!! Isn't EZ great? I'm also intrigued by knitting a sweater by percentages. Your socks are lovely. What a great project to take along. Hope you're having times of refreshment and joy with your family! We've been getting oodles of granddaughter time :)
