There have been so many exciting things going on that I've hardly had time to process it. As the legendary Iñigo Montoya says, "Let me 'splain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up." (Princess Bride)

Lincoln Land Classes
The last few semesters, the classes planned for Lincoln Land have not gone for lack of registrations so this semester we tried something a little different and scheduled the classes for Friday night. I know how hard it it to give up a Saturday, even for a knitting class. Friday night seems to be doing the trick because 2 of the classes (knitting socks and tatting) are already full enough to go and the other has some interest as well. Guess I'm going to have to get busy! There are still spaces available in the sock knitting class and the knitting with jewelry wire and beads class. So be sure to get your registration in. More info can be got here.
Now my next post is (hopefully) going to be a report on the spindles and fiber obtained, used and spun over the past couple of weeks that I've been so negligent of the blog. I will feed to the blog.
