In 48 hours, I leave for Meg Swansen's Knitting Camp in Marshfield, Wisconsin. Whoo-hoo! I have to admit that I am as nervous as I am excited. I am not a very confident knitter, so I am sure that everyone else will knit better (whatever that means!) than I do. I'm actually OK with that. I do worry that I will find out that I do everything wrong and I will have to relearn everything.
I would worry about people laughing at some of my knitting habits, but I have found that knitters are unusually nice people.
I have made some progress on my homework, the Spiral Yoke Baby Sweater:
I am not sure what else to bring, knitting-wise, so I'm going to fill an entire suitcase with the yarn and projects. That is the beauty of traveling by car -- no luggage limits!
I stumbled on two knitting books that I just HAD to have.
And what leftie could resist a book called Knitting for Anarchists? Anna Zilboorg has written some gorgeous books about knitting ethnic (and elaborate!) hats and mittens. This looks like an entirely different animal. Besides, I never get tired of reading about knitting. Do you?
I'll be joining Nicole for Keep Calm Craft On and Ginny for Yarn Along. Join us!
