I got a square completed, reminding myself of making things with Granny squares back in the 70s, and then made a hexagon when I got home.
They were satisfying to make, and it was a good evening, well-attended. But I'm not sure I have the patience to make something with a lot of granny squares (or hexagons) any more - there are so many ends to sew in.
I also bought Sarah's new book, An Elven Reckoning, full of delightful knits (and models with pointy Elven ears).

I especially like the sweater shown on the cover, on the left, with a yoke in stranded knitting - it's called Nórui, meaning Fiery. Sarah was wearing it last night in different colours (you can find a photo of it in Ravelry), and it looked really good. (I think the sword and pointy ears are optional.)
