now I've done it.....
Since I browse the internet throughout the day while at work, today I landed on a website for a yarn store about two hours north of me. A short time later, I was on the phone reserving space in a class the Saturday after Thanksgiving for knitting a mobius basket, taught by Cat Bordhi. I have looked at her book several times, but have never purchased it, but I figured this is a grand way to start my vacation....I can hardly wait! I just love the hats and bags she has designed.

pat....is it November 26th yet????

YES SHE IS!!! I asked the class size when I called and the woman told me it will be 12 at the most, and I was #7. Of course, at the price of the class (which lasts six hours) x 12, she will make a pretty penny!

I was kicking myself just yesterday because they are having a yarn/knitting convention in Seattle next spring and she is teaching three classes there, but they were already all full. I think the price of this one will be worth it for such a small class, because I'm sure that the ones at the convention would be quite large.

pat....is it November 26 yet????

What convention!?!?! I'm in Portland, I can drive up there or take a train. Got a website?
