"Pooling"? Is that a verb? It is in my household and today was the perfect pooling day. Yes instead of working, knitting, or spinning I admit I was pooling. I can hardly believe my good fortune. The end of August and the temperature in the high 20s. The sun shining, a brutal stretch of work behind me and the pool water crystal clear and beckoning. How could I possibly resist? Well I couldn't but the day is waning and this blog doesn't update itself.
I just received my Cricket Cove newsletter informing me of KnitEast a weekend of workshops featuring, Cat Bordhi, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (Yarn Harlot), Lucy Neatby, the Fleece Artist and, Jane Thornely. Sadly I will be working that weekend with no hope of possibly getting it off (Cinna is weeping uncontrollably) but I am thrilled for all of you lucky knitters, and fibre fiends. All that talent in one spot so close to me and I can't go.
Once again I am thrilled that the Moncton, Cricket Cove store has invited me to teach a Magic Loop sock class this fall. I am excited to be offering a 2 socks on 1 needle, cuff down, 2 color, fair isle class. Go see the sample and sign up. I will be offering a toe up sock class in the Spring if invited to teach by C.C..
Well knitting group has continued throughout the summer and I have been thrilled to be able to show up as often as my work schedule allows. The ladies are always such a treat to knit with and the group is so relaxed that I just de-stress the entire time I am there. Last week was an excellent turn out and Nathalie and Therese thrilled everyone by sharing a few of there finished projects. Nathalie completed her crocheted shawl at the meeting and Therese showed of here yummy afghan. I am telling you these gals can knit and crochet.
Therese also gave me the name of a French on-line Knitting club that she belongs to and is located in Quebec. I believe it is the Canadian club of Bergere de France and is Club Direct Laine. Thanks Therese.
So as thrilling as updating this blog has been I am once again off to the pool before it gets to cool. See you tomorrow night at Read's.
