Put Down the Knitting

| | Comments (2)

The book and the broom...

I just spent 4 days in Portland at the TKGA/CGOA show working for Stitch Diva and I did, in fact, put down my knitting. I spent all weekend working like crazy running the booth while Jen taught classes. I learned a lot about the inner workings of a successful knit/crochet company and I learned how to Tunisian crochet. Yes folks, I can now wield a hook with a basic level of success.

Jen was carrying Tilli Tomas, so needless to say much yummy yarn was brought home with me. There's a new yarn they make called Elsie, which is quite lovely, but totally reminds me of Cabaret, so I was humming the song all weekend long.

When I wasn't working I was off touring the town with my cohorts, Spinnity and Bogie. A very good time was had by all. We've decided that Portland has awesome public transport and it's on our short list of places to live. As if I need to move again. But it felt great to be out and about doing again, and pushing my little business along too.

Oh yes, dear Grant got Stick Chick Knits up and running, huzzah! It's very basic for now, but at least it is lovely to look at. It's forward progress and I'll take. As I learned this weekend...

When I go I'm going like Elsie!



In my encounter I've been most comfy talking about what a person can do or could do, given time, resources and training. I personally have seen people grow and develop cognitively far beyond the labels they were once given.

I had an awesome time in Portland with you & Janice. I vote for more knitting events in that fun city half-way between us. Congrats on your web site!
