Rocking Horse Farm Seminar This Month...Mary Anne Oger

My previous post I told you I regrettably had to cancel my being at the RHF seminar later this month (click here for RHF 2015 seminar info).  Jason has asked me to come up next year directly from the Finger Lakes Seminar I will be demonstrating at, I agreed.

This year I am honored to have been replaced by Mary Anne Oger!  See post here when I recently test knit for her "Man Friend Hoodie" - that's a great project, think about making one or more for the cool weather approaching!

I had a list of subjects and MAO has taken on the "Tuck Lace Rib" topic I was showcasing.  MAO does this well, REALLY well.  If you can make it to RHF and include MAO in your itinerary please do so.  She is an excellent teacher, thanks Mary Anne for jumping in for me.

Mary Anne also has a nice blog, go pay her a visit here.

I was worried Jason and Carole would be upset as it was short notice to get an event reorganized.  They couldn't be nice or any more understanding.  Great folks indeed.

Tomorrow (Sunday), I will be attending the Las Vegas Machine Knitters meeting for the first time.  Being organized through "meet-up" and look forward to it.  Some beginners and that's always fun and invigorating to help others through things.

Apologies, Apologies!

A quick post to apologize...

If you are attending the Rocking Horse Farms seminar this month in St. Cloud MN., unfortunately, I wont be able to make it.  Work beckons resulting in a scheduling conflict.  I was so looking forward to it, had the curriculum ready, airline tickets and etc. all arranged.  Last evening I had to email Jason Wurst and let him know.  Have not heard back from him, hope he isn't too annoyed (he's a good guy)!  Good news is I am participating as an instructor in next years Finger Lakes seminar!

Another apology, I never stated why my whitening formula (below post) is "better."  After some emails I thought I would let you know.  This is easier as you just dump it all in a blender, whiz it up and go!  Also, using the hair lightner creates less "bloating/swelling" after the whitener rests and starts working.

Now for Lynne who emailed asking about the whitener and was honest enough to say she found it hard to read the posts as the font color on the black background made it difficult.  Yes Lynne, I was looking for a bit of pizazz but not at the cost of losing any of you!  Thanks for letting me know.  Better I hope?

I am excited to find out there is a "Meet Up Group" here in Las Vegas for machine knitters!  The first meeting is this coming Sunday and I look forward to meeting the folks & exchange ideas. Thus far 16 members and hoping this will be a "regular club" for Las Vegas machine knitters.

Have you checked out Diana Sullivan's recent blog post?  Diana had mentioned to me in the past these wonderful ribber wires Helen Griffith sells (and some really reasonable yarns).  Check out Diana's post here and then go pay Helen a visit!

Reminder cooler weather is fast approaching as are the holiday's, time to start planning and knitting!
