I keep having songs like “Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most “ going through my brain. It has been some crazy see-saw weather on the planet, no? Two weekends ago we drove to Two Harbors MN on the glorious North Shore of Lake Superior for the 2nd Annual Knitting-By-the Shore-Retreat. In the snow. There was 22 inches of snow in Duluth. In the parking lot of At Sara’s Table, a farm-to-table restaurant with great food:
Here’s the gorgeous setting:
a lovely bit from a walk I took on a chilly morning:
I taught a Short Rows Three Ways class to an highly entertaining group of fab knitters. I also learned a thing or two from them, as happens in all good classes.
I’m going to teach an abbreviated version at the Yarnery on Saturday for one of their PopUp Classes.
“How do Pop Ups work? You show up at The Yarnery, Saturday, May 4, at 10:00am prompt (latecomers may not be seated depending on availability, and given the popularity of Pop Ups, it’s a distinct possibility). Bring some yarn and needles. No pre-registration, and all for only $5.00. As an added bonus, your purchases that morning are 10% off.”
If you are local, come on down! Or if you are not local, come on down anyway!
Speaking of popping up, I came home from the North Shore to warmer weather, and a few goodies popping up in the garden:
Crown Imperial Fritallaria
Catkins on the Hazelnut Bush
and the first squill, which I loooove. If it ever warms up again, maybe they will bloom.
