Mending
& the freedom to plan a little bit



The Transplant Went Well!
and Gerry seems on the mend, thank heaven...



We're so grateful to all of you for the kind thoughts, good wishes, prayers, gifts & help with the non-medical range of expenses.  This has certainly been a - well - an experience.  

For the past few months I've been journaling about Gerry's illness and recovery along with my design, writing & teaching life at www.modeknit.com/blog.  If you're interested, you can get a clearer picture there about our adventure.

So - for all intents and purposes - I'll be teaching as expected at my upcoming engagements, and I feel confident to make more dates for the Spring.

I haven't been doing much lately besides worrying, teaching and trying to keep the family on an even keel.  No new books on the horizon, no new patterns coming out - I'm thinking of it as a temporary, partial hiatus until life is back into a manageable state.  Stay tuned, one day I may wake up with boatloads of energy and come out with several patterns or a new book.

But for the time being, I'm happy to be teaching and meeting so many wonderful knitters.  This is truly the best part of my 'job!'

I hope if you're in one of the cities where I'll be teaching in the next few months you'll stop by to say, "Hi!"  Connecting with others who share our passions is truly a gift!


V I V E !!
France was tremendous!  The Chez French Girl tours - both weeks of them - were full of passionate and excited knitters.  

We had a magnificent time, ate our way across Languedoc and learned quite a few knitting tricks along the way!  

It was a rough time to be away, but I wouldn't have missed it for the world!  Kris & Phil showed all of us a wonderful time, and shared their passion for the wonderful French folk & food quite liberally with all of us.  Vive la France!

I put together a photo gallery of the weeks of the trip here, in case you're interested!
