I Have Already Booked My Flights

For what?

For KnitNation!


Back in July, Socktopus Alice asked me if I’d be interested in going to London in July 2010 to teach at a knitting expo she and Cookie A were putting together.

Would I? You bet your Addi Turbos I would!

So yes, I am on the teacher list, and in very illustrious company. The event is July 29 – 31, 2010 at the Imperial College in London. There will be three days of classes, two days of shopping, and a Ravelry party.

The class schedule will be up in a couple weeks’ time, and class sign ups will be open on the 1st December.

You can go to the KnitNation Website to sign up for their email list to receive notifications. There is a Ravelry group: Knit Nation Summer Expo 2010 Group and a Twitter feed: KnitNation.

The end of July seems a very long time to wait, but I’m guessing it’ll be here before I know it.

Meanwhile, I’ve made some very nice progress on my Cloister sock.


Amazing what one can accomplish when it is the only thing one is knitting. But that will soon change — I’ve got a number of projects lined up and I will likely start at least one of them this week.

Lucy has taken to sleeping on her sheepskin, even though it seems way too warm in my condo. It’s averaging about 74 degrees in here and that is at least 5 degrees warmer than I like. The outside temps during the day have been in the 60s  and I just can’t get the temperature any lower inside. But it’s supposed to be a bit cooler over the next few days. I live in hope.


I zoomed in on that peaceful scene to catch this:


Paw Floof!
