Me, too, Vicki! Plus, I thought the cost of the class was relatively small considering that you don't need to bring materials. Most of their other classes are over $50 and you have to buy/bring your own materials!
Ladies if you are really interested in the wire knitting then PLEASE come to Wisconsin for the Saturday only portion of the retreat. (Is my begging really becoming too obvious??) Check out Annie's blog entry dated Aug 23rd and click on the links to the pictures of some of her wire projects for her upcoming book. You will be knitting great jewelry in no time flat!!!! I promise. I just love the necklace I made using her kit.
I so want to come for the entire retreat...I just can't afford it right now. I know you have a spinning class as well....I SOOO very much want to be there. I hope you find people to fill in your empty spots.
