Fun in Stony Brook

A couple of weekends ago I flew to New York to teach at Rumpelstiltskin Yarns in Stony Brook.

It’s a family-owned shop that has a welcoming feel as soon as you step in the door. I taught Top-Down Sweaters with Circular Yokes for two days. Each class was full of delightful students who looked like they were having fun even when they had to rip out.

A happy class

As fun as each day was, we got to top it off with a champagne (or cider) toast.

The only snafu was that the hotel were I was to stay had a broken pipe so I had to go to an alternate hotel for the first night. Upon my return the second night, they sent me a whole bottle of wine plus some peanuts in apology.

I can’t wait to go back!
