Yay for babies! Peter and I got the news yesterday that we are brand new Auntie and Uncle to a sweet little girl named Macy Sariah Smith. Peter's sister just delivered a healthy 7 lb. 7oz. baby on 10.10.07. I think she'll be a lucky one! Hmmm, so happy...
I also wanted to let you know that knit night is officially going to be every Wednesday night at the new-ish Tandem coffee house. This is the old Mabel's location at 3041 SE Division. We meet at about 6 and go till they close. (Or earlier.) It's great to be able to support another former yarn shop owner in her new venture. Last night I had a chance to see former employees, Mary, Hillary and Patricia, and to hang out with Nancy and Louisa. All are welcome, so please stop by and say hi! (And yes, advice is always free. Knitting or otherwise.)
I've been feverishly working on my sample for the intro to Intarsia workshop that I'm teaching at Close Knit. (Nov. 10) I think it's going to be really fun. I also made a trip out to the Knitting Bee and picked up sample yarns for classes that I'll be teaching there in the Winter. So far there will be an entrelac class, fair isle fingerless gloves and a neat-o tips and tricks class. Watch for their new schedule due out soon.
PS. If anyone needs any finishing work done, I'm now back in the business. So feel free to drop me line and I'd be happy to give you a quote!
