I arrived back home yesterday – it is so GOOD to be back! Of course, being the space cadet I’ve been in the past year, I FORGOT my airline ticket at my sister-in-laws house. Sheesh. She lives in Rowlette, about 50 miles from the airport, so returning to get it was NOT an option (I took a Super Shuttle to the airport)
I missed my flight but – after many tears – got reascheduled on a later flight but had to pay a $100 reticketing fee for each leg of the journey ($200 total) I’ve done my part to help the airline industry, that’s for sure.
All in all, I prefer driving. Really. If I didn’t have to be back last evening to teach I WOULD have driven!
Class last night was FUN! I have four women in this class (there’s a fifth – I need to call her because I KNOW she really wanted to take the class) and everyone was knitting and purling last night. We’ll see how they do over the week and next week we’ll refresh our lesson and learn RIBBING! How exciting, huh?
This Thursday I’m starting an afternoon class for goal oriented knitting. Let me know if you’d like to come – it will be small (very nice, those small classes…)
This Saturday I’m teaching a lace workshop at Urban Knitter in NYC. It’s going to be a good, fun 3 hours and you’ll walk away understanding the basics of knitting lace.
Also, if you notice (to the right) I’m speaking at the Palisades Knitting Guild in NJ on Thursday, 10/23. I didn’t realize it, but this is open to NON members, too! There’s a $5 fee to hear my pearls of wisdom.
