My experience with Knit Stars 2 pushed me into a flurry of casting on. First I finally started the Estonian scarf I have been thinking about for a few years, a skinnier version of Nancy Bush's Madlis Shawl. Nupps have a special place in my heart. Estonian lace is slow but beautiful.
My knitting world was turned upside down this past fall when I attended Knit Stars 2: Needles Flying. Last year I heard about Knit Stars 1, and this year I decided I had to participate. Knit Stars is basically an online knitting conference, where you get to learn from knitting instructors from your living room.
