Guess who's coming to town!

My raw percentages for the last few days were 75, 68, 68 and 79%. I want to state publicly that I am going to aim for 80% or better from now on, as that is more likely to keep me on track!

Why is that we can let the pounds creep on for 3 months but we want them off again in 3 days?

To change the subject completely, I had a newsletter in my email inbox today from my local yarn store. In April, Cat Bordhi is going to be leading two all-day classes, one for socks and one for moebius knitting. I have booked myself in for the moebius knitting class - I am treating myself from my "birthday money" (thanks mum).

This lady is an absolute genius in knitting design so I am looking forward to meeting her very much. Now I have to think about what yarn I am going to use for the class project. Decisions, decisions!

I guess I should've saved my birthday money instead of buying sewing books...

How exciting for you to get to attend Cat's class, Nicola! I will look forward to seeing what you make from her class.

I guess I shouldn't have splurged on all that Kaffe Fassett quilt fabric on ebay (thanks Katherine!). I have been wanting to make a basket that she designed but didn't want to buy the you have her book... will you share your new knowledge of cast-on at a future knit night??

Oooh, Kaffe Fassett fabric - I'd love to see THAT. I love his work, whether his quilts or his knitting, it's so colourful. I don't have Cat's book(s) and I am reluctant to look at them now because I want to learn at the workshop and not "cheat" by trying to learn from the book ahead of time!
