Amy Detjen was a great speaker at last night's MKG meeting. She's a wonderful tall person with great stories and even greater sweaters. If you go to her blog you can see the sweater with all the squares....I got to touch that sweater! I didn't go up to say hello during the break because I couldn't think of anything that didn't sound too dorky. Yeah, silly, I know. She teaches some knitting classes at the Sow's Ear in Verona besides working with Meg Swanson. She was very funny last night and made me feel so good about being a knitter. That isn't what she focused on during her talk but she so obviously is immersed in knitting. I was smiling and laughing all during her talk. Life is good.
I'm on the road. No surprise. That is part of what I do to make my living. I am, however, very much looking forward to Thursday night when I'll be home and getting ready for the next week (plus a few days) of family, hunting, eating, and tree-sitting. (Oh, yes, and knitting.) I can be quite sure that there will be some nights in the next week when I'm bone-tired but it will be a good physical tired....not a *mental* tired. Not that I enjoy getting up at three a.m. in the darkness of the night but it is only for a few days. Besides, once I make it up my tree, I can, um, rest until the sun comes up. *g* Don't worry, I won't fall out of my tree. I have a tree house, a virtual
Taj Mahal castle of deer blinds. (I didn't realize the Taj Mahal was actually a mausoleum. Lovely architecture but my blind is not a mausoleum. I may be old but I'm not that old.)
But, I'm getting ahead of myself. No tree until Saturday.
