The 5th Season - More Winter
Or as we in Minnesota like to call it, Pre-Spring

History on Two Needles

Or, HoTN, as I've taken to call it, is full speed ahead!  I've started a few different projects, I've got one assigned to a knitter and I'm having a blast.

I don't have a firm deadline set for this, I'm one of those odd folks who seems to work more quickly and efficiently when I'm not tied to a calendar.  Let's just say I'm hoping the lion's share of the work will be complete by Fall 2009, but I'm not making any guarantees!

I'd like to keep the process as transparent as possible, so I'm writing about each step at my blog, www.modeknit.com, where you can follow the progress and see what's working out (and what might not be...)

New Designs
My Arbroath Abbey was featured in the British knit-zine, Yarn Forward.  I hadn't been familiar with this magazine, but it's a wonderful resource - I was quite impressed with the photography, layout, and all around quality of patterns and articles.  If you haven't seen it yet, it's worth a look!  Shannon's doing an amazing job, I'm proud to be part of this issue!

MORE Teaching
I'm filling up my calendar with more teaching than I've done in years.  I'm think I'm in a better place now - the family is in a better place - for me to be gone for weeks at a time.

A handy table of my teaching dates is below, but for a change of pace I've set up a lovely Google agenda of all my teaching dates which you can access by clicking here. You can change the view to Agenda for a list of my classes, I think it's a bit easier to read than the calendar grid.

As long as I'm being fancy, here are some fun Google Maps!

My April Caribbean Cruise (more info on the cruise here!)
MN to NH with points between
Scotland & England in Aug / Sept

I hope I'll see you en route!

And Finally - FEAR!
I'm filled with trepidation as I write this.  Tomorrow afternoon I take my first skiing lesson.  Downhill.  And I am more nervous than I thought I'd be.  At least we'll have Atticus to come and find me (and the kids can both ski now)  

This is what I get for not being able to turn down a bargain - March lessons are half price.  Well, 47 is probably a good age to learn to ski, right?

Greek Chiton as Lace Tunic

You've been going back and forth;
Can I afford this?  Should I do it?  Well, it's probably cold where you are.  If you can afford this cruise, it will be a blast.
And it will be warm.

Need me, baby?
