Classes and More

Hello friends... Today I taught the first of two sessions of a class called fearless fingerless gloves at the Knitting Bee. All of my students were well on their way to Fair Isle masterpieces at the end of just 2 hours!  It was totally awesome. This is the second class I've taught at the Bee and I'm very happy.  I love to teach and these classes are giving me all kinds of design ideas.  So thanks class!

And now, the rest of the story.  I joined a little thing online called Ravelry. Maybe you've heard of it?  It's absolutely incredible.  I can't believe it.  I don't have nearly enough time to take full advantage of such an amazing resource, but it sure is fun.  If you're looking for me, my ravelry name is Squishymillie.  Hopefully I'll even add some more cool stuff for others to look at.If you're on it, I'd sure like some more friends.  I feel slighly lame with my one (really great) friend.  Although I feel shamed by all of the truly talented knitters out there.  (Where do they find the time?)  Maybe they don't have kids.  Anyhoo, it's a fun little place to kill some time.  
And until next time...

I didn't fall off the face... if that's what you're wondering

I've been perusing some blogs and looking at what other people have been doing with their lives and I realized. Hey~ I have one of those too! So, If you're interested (and you must be if you're actually reading this) here is the haps.

I'm now working mostly from home, being a mom to now 16 1/2 month old Charlie. (I'll try to find a pic.) I'm learning all kinds of crazy computer skills. I'm also continuing to teach classes at Knitting Bee and Close Knit. I'm excited about a few coming up in January and February.

At Close Knit I'm teaching an intro to intarsia class using a project I designed. It's a cute little shoulder bag with a patch pocket. I designed a little bird that lives there and people seem to really like it. Check out the listing for it at

At the Knitting Bee I'll be teaching a fair isle fingerless mitt class, an adventures in entrelac class and a tips and tricks class. All three of these should be great fun. (Especially the tips class.) I figured I'd gather up all I've learned in the last 9 years of working in knit shops and share it with you lovely people. Fun.

So, want to know anything else? My sister's getting married...
