WHAT a tremendous class yesterday at Urban Knitter! Thank heaven for Alison – who was a great help – she made the class seem as if there were half the number!
The students themselves were outstanding! Everyone finished their necklaces, everyone did such creative things with their beads and I think everyone left very happy! Congrats to all of you – you are stellar!
I’m stressing that my class in CT might not be full next weekend – it’s to make the Aline bag (see photo to the right and below) and I think it will be a good time! I swear, it’s either feast or famine in the free-lance biz, that’s for sure! There’s really no fool proof formula to determine if a class will fill up or will be almost empty. I guess the better known I become – and the more my classes are chatted up by my students – the quicker my classes will fill up! Everything in time, right?
Tonight is dedicated to swatching. I started a project for Unique Colors (I have two for them due in early Feb) but I set it aside to gear up for a design deadline this Wed. I meant to do swatching this afternoon, but just as I was settling into my nice, warm sofa with my needles and yarn strewn around me, my daughter appeared at my elbow with Brownie uniform and her cookie order form in hand. Mom, you promised we could go out to sell Girl Scout Cookies this weekend!
A promise is a promise. If a troop leader can’t get off her butt to roam the neighborhood in 10∫ weather, how can the other parents be expected to put in the cookie time with their chicks?
We were out for about 1-1/2 hours, visited a lot of neighbors (we love our neighborhood) and sold a lot of cookies! Obviously we earned big points with the ‘hood for actually BRAVING the cold and I feel a lot of the sales were pity purchases. We’ll take them. All in all, I hope it’s a good memory for Hannah – it certainly is for me! Max joined us for the last few houses – little “me too” had to tag along. Hmmmm – tag alongs – my favorite cookie!
