We had a great Thanksgiving and Jeni and I even worked some on our knitting. We must have been inspiring 'cause the next morning, at 5:30 a.m.(!) we were up and on our way to Purlescence for their Jammy Sale. I skipped out on wearing my jammies, but it was fun and there were a lot of people there! AND we were joined by my eldest daughter Isha, my ex-husband's fiance Hannah (love saying that!), and my niece Danielle who is expecting a baby (we were there picking out yarn for a shawl I am going to knit for her), but get this- Danielle bought her own yarn to knit a scarf!!!! Then I was able to teach her how to knit while we waiting for Hobbee's to open in the parking lot. I am so proud and she is a quick learner...
But that 5:30 a.m. thing? Yeah, only for yarn.
Then we all got together on Sunday and worked on our scrapbooks AND our knitting. Such the perfect weekend!
I am stoked. I was able to get all of my first choice classes!
Thursday: Traditional Shetland Scarf with Candace Eisner Strick.
Friday: Twined Mittens with Beth Brown-Reinsel (6 hr. class)
Saturday: Fair Isle Knitting and Flawless Finishing (Norweigian and fair Isle sweaters) with Beth Walker-O'Brien.
I am really looking forward to Stitches this year.
But, for now, I am back to my kniting....
