Wow, life goes so fast, huh?
I just got back from Portland and in two weeks I’ll be flying again, this time down to Kansas City! [more about that below]
Portland was amazing, and I’m hoping to teach at some local venues when I return in September to teach at the TKGA Knit & Crochet Show at the Portland Convention Center.
If you missed any of my classes this time, I’ll be teaching some of the same things, and some new classes too. Mostly, though, you’ll just laugh a lot (and then when you get home you’ll wonder, “How did I learn so much knitting if I was laughing all the time..?”)
And how buzzed am I that the Happy Gnome here in St. Paul has Hazlenut Brown? I just rode Hannah over to her new Jr. High for registration, then back home (4 miles, it’s a lot for ME!) and celebrated with a fine glass of Hazlenut Brown from Portland. Happy days.
I’ve scheduled a late month tour of the Surly Brewery for the family (kids are allowed, wee!) so it will be a beer-li-cious May. I have mentioned that a brewery tour was the highlight of our honeymoon, right?
It’s also the month of the Shepherd’s Harvest Fiber Fest out in Lake Elmo on May 10th & 11th, and with this warm weather I’m getting VERY excited to go! I wonder if I can sneak Atticus in masqueraded as a sheep?
I’m teaching a few classes, and although Combination is sold out there’s a waiting list, and my lace class still has openings. There are some amazing things to see and many other classes, too! What a wonderful way to spend Mother’s day!
I’ve never been to KC, but I’m told pretty marvelous things about the place I’ll be teaching.
Studio Knitting & Needlepoint
1121 West 47th Street
Kansas City, MO 64112
I haven’t publicized the class at all, but I’ve heard from the shop they’re filling up fast.
So if you’re inclined to go to Missouri (or if you’re there already!) and you’d like to take a class, here’s what I’m teaching the weekend of May 16/18

Tonight I’m going to go to a monthly support group for cancer care-givers. It’s my first time, and I’m curious as to what I’ll find there.
