The above is a quote by the one and only Ysolda Teague during her talk at the Fancy Tiger on Friday night. The rest of the question and answer session was filled with similar gems and I had a great time 🙂
First off, I went by myself. I can be a shy person and I know that knitters are nice folk, but I still get quiet. I tried to conquer this fear and I talked! I talked the employees and I talked with other knitters, I talked with the nice women sitting by me and I shared my conversation and that, for me, is a step in the right direction.
She had samples of her work:
And there were cookies with knitting motifs, what more could you want?
It was a good evening and I hope to spend more time with the great people I met there 🙂
