Since Dave & I are heading to Austin next week to be visiting my family, of course I took advantage of the situation to set up a visit to a LYS!

I’ll be teaching a 2 hr version of my Aran Lace class at The Knitting Nest in Austin Texas next week — December 20th to be precise. Check out this newsletter link for more info on times, signing up, and so on (scroll down).  That’s a sample of the class project, a lovely worsted weight cowl (pattern to be published soon) on the left — don’t worry, we’ll practice the various stitches before diving in to the cowl!

I’ll be hanging out a bit before & after to sign copies of California Revival Knits and just to chat.

After Christmas — Sunday Jan 20th to be precise — I’ll be teaching my Beading Stranded Motifs class at Alamitos Bay Yarn Company in Long Beach.  Lagniappe is the class project for this class, and you’ll get the pattern popped into your Ravelry library.  And yep, book signings there too!  Check out their events page for more info.

And of course, I’ll be at Madrona in February! I’ll be teaching the Aran Lace class, as well as my Style Guide and Indie Publishing classes.  Saturday I’ll be showing samples from California Revival Knits and demoing some of the techniques.

The Wednesday before Madrona starts, the day I fly in, I’ll be doing something really nifty locally, but I don’t know if it’s supposed to be secret or if it’s okay to talk about it, so, I’ll post more when I can!
