Both classes went very well. I loved it when I made a little funny and people
I did learn that 1. I need more time to do the Finishing class and 2. Necklines (and picking up in general) needs to be a separate class from Buttonholes. Everyone was very patient while I went around helping one-on-one and I'm glad that most everyone stayed a bit longer so that we could cover the material. I'm looking forward to the next Frolic.
In lieu of pictures I am going to make the following shout-outs:
Joan & Barb of the DKC (and all of the DKC volunteers) did a rockin' job (and when I say job I mean a whole shitload of work with no monetary recompense - but it's all about the glory, right Joan?) of putting this event on.
Cynthia - I don't know ... I'm still quite certain that we've met before. Next time we'll have to make a plan to hang out together for awhile.
Denise - I would love to be a part of The Back to Back Wool Challenge! I have e-mailed Lorraine ... cross my fingers (when I'm not knitting).
Yvette - Thanks Yvette - I'm really glad that it worked. Drop me a comment or e-mail if you have any questions.
Sandra - That big yellow bag was a great badge. It was great to meet you in person and don't forget the mantra - under, over, around (c-clockwise) and back. Blog something!!!
Danny - Thanks for all the deets on The Challenge. It sounds like a blast (and when I say 'blast' I mean have fun but kick ass).
Julie - Doh!! I forgot to ask if the cashmere had come in. Did it?
Marsha, Linda aka "Nemesis", Carolyn - It's a good thing that there are knitting shows so that I can say 'hey' to you all in person!!
Fiona - Thank you for the book! I will be knitting a lot of these in my head until I get RL time to do them.
You know when you give your speech at the Oscars and do your 'thank you's' and as soon as you walk off waving the statue and you realize that you've forgotten several "OMG - how could I have forgotten ...?" people? As soon as I hit 'Publish Post' it's gonna happen to me. So if I've forgotten you remembered you late, please smack me upside the head with a message & I'll remember to remember you.
I only bought an Addi Turbo to replace the one that Cheeky Monkey
edited to add: I spoke to Lorraine & I am officially a member of the Toronto Spiders - omg!! does that not just beg for a t-shirt?!! - for the International Back to Back Wool Challenge. Lorraine sounds awesome and I can't wait to get together with the rest of the team to strategize. Yeah, I know ... strategize. If winning didn't matter then you wouldn't keep score. Just like when I play cards, I'm all for having fun; I mean, I wouldn't bet the house or both kids on it, and it's not the Ancient West (STNG reference there) where I'd kill over the results, but loving the game doesn't make winning less sweeter. I'm a fun-loving gal who just needs a goal or a deadline to make it interesting.
This link will give you some history. Yeah, I know ... history.
Also, final score: Tim Hortons 23 Wannietta 2
