I’m back chez Comfort Inn, knitting, catching up on email and watching the America’s Next Top Model marathon. The perfect ending for a great day of classes at the Great Lakes Fiber Show in Wooster!
My classes today were Double Knitting and the Mitered Bag, both went very well! I wish I’d been able to cover more material, but it was a big class (19) and sometimes that affects how much I can give each student individually.
The mitered class was a bit smaller – 16 – and the class astounded me by getting farther in the bag than many smaller classes I’ve taught!
I remember how impressed I was with the quality of the knitting the last time I taught here in Wooster, and this visit is no different!
I had hopes of going for a bike ride, but hadn’t anticipated my exhaustion. It was all I could do to stop at the local grocery and pick up some grapes, then back to my hotel for a nice, tall New Glarus Naked ale – yay!
I talked to Gerry and the kids before my phone died – they’re at the Saint Paul Saints game, we’re hoping they’re far enough up in line to get the Al Franken / Norm Coleman bobble head dolls.
In the mean time, here’s a photo of one of the tulips we’d replanted on Mother’s Day – they’re taking to the front yard in a good way!
