Off Grid

I have been teaching at the Madrona Winter Retreat.  You will be pleased to know that Ms. Crazy Pants' assignment (which officially took my stress level to 11)  may actually have established me as an Undiscovered Talent.  Due to the Media Blackout surrounding the event, I'm sorry that I can't tell you anything more, but let me assure you that next year, the bar surrounding "Teacher Talent Night" has been well and truly set.  I hereby challenge all comers for next year:  Bring It.

Please excuse the fact that my posts last week were thin on the ground.  I'm sorry to admit that this week will be more of the same, due to the fact that I'm challenging myself to something really hard.

I'd love to tell you more about it, and in the course of time, I promise that I will.  But for today, MUM's the word.

I'm doing really challenging stuff, at an undisclosed location, which is guaranteed to make me a better knitter, teacher, story-teller, and Friend of the Knitter.  There is NO shortage of things in my life that will keep me humble, and I am learning new lessons almost faster than I can absorb them. 

I'm really far from home, and even the web access here is not a sure thing, so I won't even try to post again till next week.  In the meantime, how about you cats comment about what's going on in your neck o' the woods, and I promise to put them all up as fast as I can?

Next week, I'll tell you about the worst person I ever met in the world of knitting, the most staggering class I ever taught, and weather I can knit a pair of socks in 5 days or not.  What could possibly go wrong?  (Yeah, I said it. Turns out the Knitting Gods already know where to find me.)  Oh, and in case you're wondering, the Queen Bee is done.  Stay Tuned!
