Remember how I used to talk about knitting all the time? I realize that since the move and the holidays, I haven’t really kept up on that whole knitting thing very well. Today I’ll fix that.
First up, I want to mention something I’m really excited about. I’m offering several knitting classes this month at The Knitting Nest. Not only are the classes filling up, but they’re overflowing with students. On nights when I don’t have classes, I’m usually taking students for private lessons. I’m LOVING it. I’m busy and making money and doing what I love to do.
I’ve mentioned before that Stacy is the owner of The Knitting Nest. We refer to each other as “the other Stacy”. Yesterday a friend came into the store when we were both there and said, “Hello, Stacys!” Plural. Hee.

This is the pattern that I’m using for my upcoming sock class. It’s worsted weight, so it will be a quick knit. I made the pattern by combining the best features of a couple of free patterns available online, so that it incorporates everything a knitter will need to know to get started on socks.
Ike likes it.

It’s so pretty, and Janet is very generous to offer this as a free pattern. (Thank you, Janet!)
|Next up – The Chartreuse Monster, my current WIP.
I’m keeping it a secret until it’s finished.
|Doggie goodness time…
We just celebrated Abe’s 4th birthday last week. Now he’s all growed-up.
In this photo, I believe he’s caught the scent of a BBQ joint in San Antonio or something.
