I’ve spent the morning slowly pottering around the kitchen, cleaning up, doing laundry and baking scones. In contrast to my usual get sucked into the internet while drinking coffee / dash around madly trying to find everything I need mornings (depending on whether I need to go somewhere) it felt so good.
I’ve been busy + rather run down for the last week or so and I’m finally starting to feel like I’m mentally catching up with myself. Doesn’t hurt that the sun’s out.
I taught my first formal (er not formal at all but you know what I mean) knitting class on Sunday and it was so much fun, I had a full class of 6 and a reasonably wide ability range but everyone managed to make a good start and I felt like everyone learnt something. I’m really looking forward to seeing their progress next Sunday. We’re making Urchin, which I re-wrote for a slightly lighter weight yarn – I’ll upload the pattern for that soon. If you’re interested in taking one of my classes there is more info on the recently added ‘classes’ page of my site. I have a feeling most of my readers are neither local nor beginners but if you are local and would like to see a class on something in particular let me know. I’m also happy to arrange private classes on pretty much anything for either individuals or small groups.
I have lots to show you, but for now here’s a little peek. Right now I need to go pick up my new glasses, which I’m quite excited about.
.... And it's a big one! Usually, the sale runs across a set number of days and things get pretty fast paced around here with shipping and customer service emails. With the need to continue to prioritise staff safety and a smaller team than usual, we decided to make this a whole birthday month.
