I traveled to Argentina to see my friends! And to meet new friends while serving as a group leader for Behind the Scenes Adventures Knitter’s Argentina and Uruguay.
I arrived a few days before the group so I could spend time with Joji Locatelli. A knitwear designer extraordinaire and Buenos Aires native, Joji was my city guide, translator, mate instructor, taxi driver, knitting consultant, gaucho pants finder, inspiration and so much more! What an amazing lady…what an amazing friend…I can’t even begin…and her FAMILY!!!! The best, the sweetest! I felt so welcome and loved that I didn’t want to leave and I can’t wait to return. I also can’t wait to return the favor – I want to show them my Maine!
I was away for over a month. Before heading below the equator, I flew to the west coast of the US to teach a Vogue Knitting Live. Upon my return I briefly visited friends in New York City and then taught at Kent Needle Arts Retreat in Connecticut. I’m still a little travel-charged – and words, particularly written words are not coming out as … poetically…as I might hope. So lets just look at some pretty pictures for the next few days!
