The past few days have found me at the Village Yarn and Fiber shop, home of Dizzy Sheep and his groupies. I taught in the afternoon and evenings, and Wednesday night we had a party and lots of the Dizzy groupies who helped with the book were there, and I signed lots and lots of books. I enjoyed every moment, and am going to miss my students when I go home.
Of course, I was busy every minute and took no photos until the very, very end, when things were winding down. Trust me when I tell you that everyone in all the classes bowled me over with their enthusiasm, tenacity and talent. But here are some snapshots of students from the last class, who lingered a bit.
Inbetween classes, I visited and shopped. I am going to start another Dizzy scarf (I’ve knit 6 already, but they are so much fun to knit that I can’t stop), and Bobbie helped me choose yarn to make one like the scarf she knit for the Dizzy gallery.
Today I am taking a road trip with designer Marcia Weinert, who is driving me to Rhinebeck to sign in the authors section tomorrow. I am quite nervous about this, since I have never been there and don’t know what to expect. But, lots of Dizzy groupies and students from Stitches East will be there, and I am hoping some of them will drop by to say hi. I have made so many friends on this trip, and I hope they will keep in touch with me and send photos of their knitting!
