Did you take some time off this holiday weekend? I did. It was fabulous.
But now it’s back to work, and oh, my. If I think too much about my upcoming schedule, I start hyperventilating:
- This weekend I head to small, local retreat where I get to test-teach a new class to a bunch of friends. (A friendly audience is always good for kicking off a new class.) I’m excited by the topic, Wedge Shawl Design. I have samples, and I know how I want the class to run. I just need to finish writing the handouts… eep!
- A short two weeks later, I head to the Bay area to teach Charts Made Simple and Lace Basics to the Knitting Bridge guild, and Charts Made Essential and Manage Those Numbers! for A Verb for Keeping Warm. Should be fun! I always like visiting the Bay area, and I’m excited to visit Verb for the first time.
- October features a mega-trip: four days(!) teaching for the Rochester Knitting Guild, two for the Knitting Guild of Greater Buffalo, and then a side trip to Rhinebeck. Goodness. I have no idea how I’m going to pack everything I’ll need.
- November brings Stitches East… always a good time. And, tentatively scheduled, a webinar hosted by Interweave. More news on that later.
I’d call that a rather full schedule; wouldn’t you? Wish me luck! I gotta get back to writing those handouts…
