First off, I'll be starting to work at my LYS, The Knitty Gritty. Can't tell you how excited I am about this - it's a dream come true (not the big Broadway/sports arena one, but a dream nonetheless), and I'm elated that Anna invited me to join the staff. And what a time to start, with the Orange Blossom Yarn Crawl going on from March 1 to 10. Grab your passport and come on out!
Not only will I be helping out in the shop here and there, but I'm also slated to teach two classes. The first, next Wednesday, March 6, is a two-hour session teaching ipad users how to take advantage of KnitCompanion, the most ingenious app in the world IMHO. A single class will really only scratch the surface of KC's seemingly infinite capabilities, but will enable the students to download, set up and follow patterns using this revolutionary technology.
The following Monday, March 11, we'll begin a four-week adventure learning how to knit socks, toe up, on two circular needles (one-at-a-time - let's not get ahead of ourselves!). Beginners can work in worsted weight to learn the basics on larger needles; more experienced knitters can use fingering weight....and reading glasses!Theatre-Go-Round is opening our newest show on Sunday, March 24, which means rehearsing with increased frequency and urgency. "New York, New York" continues for the next two weekends (with only a couple seats available, if that), then we'll begin a 10 week-run of "Those Fabulous 50's". We continue to enjoy performing at 14th Avenue Steakhouse and working with the fine folks there.
