More fun from Jeny Staiman, Cat Bordhi, OFFF

Remember how I waxed rhapsodic over Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off? Jeny just posted a stretchy cast on to match. Simple, yet elegant. And oh, so stretchy! Very cool.

And I just bought Cat Bordhi‘s new book, Personal Footprints for Insouciant Sock Knitters. Cat is, as usual, brilliant! And she has Jeny’s bind off in her book. I feel so in the know this week…

Off to OFFF (Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival) this afternoon! Yesterday I helped Lorajean (Knitted Wit) set up her booth. She has some really gorgeous hand-dyed yarn for sale, including Bling, a new fingering weight line that is merino, silk, and silver. It would make beautiful socks or a shawl. There’s a blackberrry colored skein calling my name…but I don’t stash! She also has braids of hand-dyed fiber: merino, corriedale, blue faced leicester, some silk blends. And my patterns!

OFFF runs through tomorrow (Sunday); come down and say howdy! I’ll be there, looking for a second drop spindle…
