This has been an up and down weekend for the new web site. Yesterday every 2nd time I went to work on it the old site was back again. It seems today the new site is there for good. I actually miss my old site. It was so easy to work on. I will learn my way around this site fairly soon. It has sooooooo much more to offer. I was going to work on it a lot today but I think my brain needs a rest so I will knit today.
Yesterday I had a really interesting day at the store. A young family came in and they all knit. Mom and Dad and an 11 year old boy and a 9 year old girl. They were on Quadra for the weekend and wanted a knitting project. Guess what they all choose - socks. They are all fairly beginner knitters but all of them picked up knitting on double pointed needles quite quickly.
It was such a pleasure to teach this young family to knit socks. I hope to see more of them and their new socks.
I am getting very excited to go to Madrona Fibre festival. I will leave Feb. 13. I am taking a lot of classes there and can't wait.
This is what I am taking at Madrona
Thursday and Friday, all day - Nancy Bush and Judith MacKenzie McCuin: Hand Coverings: The Art of Mittens and Gloves
Saturday morning - Judith MacKenzie McCuin: Wild Texture
Sunday, all day - Kathryn Alexander: Exploring Color for Entrelac Knitting
I will be very busy for the 4 days of lessons but I think it will be very fun
