For the past few months, I’ve been away more days than I’ve been at home. My husband is getting accustomed to preparing his own dinner, doing laundry, and shopping for groceries. I thoroughly embrace his new skills! While he’s been advancing on the domestic front, I’ve been having a blast traveling across the country to teach workshops at yarn shops, guilds, and retreats.
In May, I visited Buffalo, New York (Greater Buffalo Knitter’s Guild), Niagara Falls, Canada (I was soo close), Ford, New Jersey (Woodbridge Library), Bethlehem, Pennsylvania (The Knitter’s Edge), New York City (Lion Brand Yarn Studio), Santa Fe, New Mexico (Yarn and Coffee), and Albuquerque, New Mexico (The Yarn Store at Nob Hill).
In addition to meeting lots of terrific knitters and visiting inspiring yarn shops, I took some time to have a bit of fun.
Here I am going down Niagara Falls in a barrel with my event coordinator Cindy. What a ride!
I also got to see the New Year ball (see it way up high?) at Times Square. I still wonder what makes up the “square.”
I also saw my first Broadway show — Wicked at the Gershwin Theater! Poor misunderstood Elphaba…
As nice as all the traveling is, I’m always happy to return home. The Flatiron formation that forms the backdrop to my hometown of Boulder, Colorado, is spectacular in the spring and early summer! Proof that there’s no place like home.
Tonight I head for Wisconsin, where I’ll teach at Wild Haven Fiber Company in Milwaukee on June 4 and 5, and I’ll teach at KnitCircus Yarns in Madison on June 11. There’s still space in some of the classes if you’d like to join me.
In between teaching, I’ll taking in the beautiful sights of Door County. Color me spoiled!
