The great day dawns.

I was on the doorstep yesterday evening snipping herbs for our supper, when Kathy and her husband came by, on their way home after a long, hard day at the LYS. She was in a state of some excitement about the morrow, and said she hadn’t heard from KD since Wednesday and was afraid she might not have the books and might not turn up.

(You don’t get to be Micro-Business of the Year by disappointing Kathy at the last moment.)

I told her that I had been promised my copy for today, and she was happy to believe that if one copy was going to be available, they all were.

Now I must assume a smart-casual costume of some sort. I’ll tell you all about it tomorrow, insh’Allah.

I got on well with the Hansel hap yesterday. Soft, fluffy garter stitch seems to suit my mood at the moment. I am now within five rows of the centre. I finished the second and attached the third ball of yarn – 25 gram balls give a great sense of forward movement to one used, as I am, to 100-gram skeins. It now looks as if the centre will consume about 4 ½ balls: I think I’ve got plenty.


  1. Just in case you see this before sallying forth, KD said on Ravelry that the books were due to be delivered today - this was YESERDAY so clearly the printers are doing what printers love to do - make us sweat over deadlines!

  2. I'm so excited for you, Jean!! It should be great fun. I'll be up earlier than usual in the morning, anxious to read about it.

  4. I do hope it all went well and you had a grand time

  5. Hope you had a grand time too - I happily "wasted" a good half hour looking at the download version. (No, I couldn't wait.) It is so good when those with academic training do the writing. There are a lot of references there for me to follow up!
