Fun in Houston

A couple of weeks ago I taught four days in Houston, Texas. The first two days I taught at Knitting in the Loop where I was surprised by a number of groupies.

Budd's Buds

These wonderful ladies are all self-proclaimed Ann Budd’s Buds and they weren’t ashamed to advertise it (but I admit to being a bit embarrassed by the attention).

They made a special shirt for me, lest there be any question who Ann Budd was:

I spent the following two days teaching for the Knit At Night Guild (KANG), where I tried to be little more professional while sporting my Take-Two Skirt.

I walked away with some beautiful yarn:

And a pair of socks knitted just for me! They are one of my favorite patterns, called Diagonal Rib Socks. I love them but I can’t help feeling like a spoiled brat!

  1. It looks like you had a wonderful trip to the South. I imagine that you have so many “Ann Budd Groupies” hiding around the country, you don’t even know it! You are a wonderful teacher and I, for one, think it’s fabulous that you have a following! After all, you are most definitely a Knitting Rock Star!
