I knit to rejoin the frayed
and unraveled places around me.
There was a little sunshine here over the weekend. I managed to take a short hike with my friend, Cindy, on Friday…First of the 3-weekend Shetland Lace workshop started yesterday at Dudley’s was so-so. One of the students was flustered by her choice of fiber, repetitive wrong stitch count…so the horrific first lace/reading chart experience; followed by a melt-down…she had nothing to show for at the end of the 2-hour class. Is it the end of my teaching career? Even though it’s a complimentary workshop, I don’t like disappointment. But, I do love to share…My confidence was rebuilt later in the day by one of the students. Beverley finished the neck part of her lace without a glitch and was moving on to the Body Chart. Life is good again.
Today, I am making a little progress on this mystery:
Any idea yet? Many more designing twists are surfacing…more to come.
For now, nothing like curling up with a cup of a chai and Nancy Bush’s Knitted Lace of Estonia…after a short game of basketball with hubby and the children.
