Today I was fortunate enough to attend a day-long sweater fitness workshop with Anne Hanson. As I mentioned yesterday, I felt a little flummoxed after Saturday's fast paced lace workshop, and I was determined to get today's class RIGHT.
First things first, I had my Enabler with me :) That makes things better, no matter WHERE I am.
I also made sure to pack appropriately this time...
Sure, the class description said to bring 50-100 yards of yarn and the pattern for ONE sweater we wanted to knit, but hey... better safe that sorry, right?
I brought my current WIP as well, and got lots of knitting done while waiting for Anne to see us all individually. Sadly, Kate finished her sock fairly early on, so I put her to work winding a large skein of Briar Rose Grandma's Blessing (earmarked for Bel Air, in case you were wondering) I've had marinating in the stash for 3 years...
We even managed to get a wee photo-session in as well!
We photographed Kate's magnificent Gale...
As well as staged a mock-Twilight tribute with the giant Ball o' Yarn Kate wound for me ('cause yes, apparently I AM that big of a dork, heh).
All in all, a most wonderful day. Thanks so much to Anne for making the trip up here, and I look forward to more lovely days spent with my knitting peeps in the very near future.
Happy Knitting Everyone!
