Friends and neighbors, go tell it on the mountain. The last session of my Intro to Fair Isle class was tonight, and my students and my pattern came through with flying colors. Of the original seven, six of my intrepid students remained for the second class, and all of the six finished the class. Over the five sessions of the class, a few missed one class or another, but tonight, I had five of the six, and I know the sixth is sure to do well. She’s a regular customer, and she always does a great job at her projects.
Want to see their work?
This is the beginning of the Nova Scotia colorway that our friend Pat is working on. She did get a late start because of a trip that she had to take in the middle of the class, but she’s done a spectacular job in her short time of working on the project. She was able to take into account the late instruction in corrugated ribbing, so I absolutely had to show it off for her.
This is the Thistle colorway that our friend Monica is making. We all had quite a delight watching her steek her first armhole. She’s done a great job.
And this is the Marigold colorway that our friend Melissa is knitting. I would love to go into great detail about how spectacular each of these are, but frankly, they’ve all already heard it from me. I’ll leave to you further congratulations for them.
As for the rest of life, I actually got a decent lead on a property for the new shop this afternoon. It’s the first one I’ve seen, really, but I’m hoping it won’t be the last. I’ve got to say, though, it’s a huge relief to have at least one property under my belt. Now, we just have the zoning hearing on the current property to deal with next week. Wish me luck!
Much love, folks.
