Ann is an amazing teacher, and her patterns are outstanding! It was two days of fun and knowledge gathering. I won't say I'm an expert now, so don't ask me for advice. See that lady down in the left-hand corner? That's Cathy, she's the expert. Ask her. (Just kidding Cathy! Sorry, no link, 'cuz she'll kill me, really, she's like that. Hee!)
As you can see Ann needed a few tips on proper lace blocking so the big pic in the middle is me showing her how to do it right. And, also, I am a ham. But you knew that, right?
What was interesting is that these ladies in these pictures can be the LOUDEST, funnest (word?), hilarious women I know. But, in this class there was a lot of thinking going on, and a whole lotta quiet.
I've found that I have a slight problem. I can't knit lace. But, that's ok!
Now, if you want to knit some of Ann's patterns go to Knitspot - her stuff is great! She's got sweaters, shawls, wraps, and all kinds of scarves, mittens and hats. Love it all. Now, I just gotta practice my lace! Check it all out HERE
For family and friends who are curious: My back is doing GREAT! I do NOT want to do the shot now (this week) because I only have twinges now and again. But, I've been warned that it's just gone to sleep a bit, and it will come back AGAIN with a vengeance... Ah yes, being almost 43 has it's advantages.
That's it for tonight folks.
Talk to you soon!
