When I heard that Cat Bordhi would be in Blue Hill Maine, I knew I had to go, deadlines be damned! So last Saturday found me happily knitting along with other sock enthusiasts, making our own Personal Footprint socks. Cat in an Adventurous Sock Goddess, figuring out innovative ways to approach the age old structure of socks. She is a wonderful teacher – I urge you to sign up quick if she is ever in your neck of the woods. She has a great way of making complex directions understandable, in a storytelling kind of way. This class is worth it for the cast on alone, but there are lots of other gems she shares, that get the imagination percolating! It was delightful just to bask in her presence.
Our hostesses were Karen and Tanis of String Theory, purveyors of beautiful String Theory Yarns, and owners of the fantastic Yarn Shop of the same name, housed in a charming, brightly painted Victorian house. Defiantly worth the trip Down East.
I had to get a fan-girl picture of Cat and me, thanks Linda!
