It has been a few months of moving around the globe for me. My latest jaunt was to Interweave’s Knitting Lab in San Mateo California, a really fun event that you should think about participating in next year… Alice Starmore was there….I became a blithering fan-girl.
I know, I’m showing you seaweed. My imaginary-friend-made-real Lisa and her darling Robb took me to the tidepools just north of Half Moon Bay. My sister-in-law and brother-in-law and his mom joined us too. But aren’t the colors beautiful? I love the washed out greyness of the day, with the sea blending with the sky. Lisa can tell you more about creatures we saw here. But don’t stop at that post, read about her backyard farm and the day of the dead and feral cats, all equally fascinating!
At Knitting Lab I taught Fair Isle Knitting, and 2 Andean techniques classes. Let me tell you, my students had a workout, and were A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Just look at what the FI Class knit!
I enjoyed a great morning with Eunny Jang, full of mutual fascination with global knitting techniques old and new…plus she gave me a the name of a great noodle shop and a run down on what to expect: you order before you sit down, it is that crowded –line out the door, but it moves fast and is worth it: Santa Ramen just a 5 minute drive away.
