Hiya. Just got back from TNNA last night and oh, was it a fun time. It’s always fun, but this time was somehow…umm… “funner”? Yes. Funner. That’s exactly the right word.
I will post all about it soon, I promise (there’s much to show and tell), but meanwhile, I have more or less lost my voice and sound like Brenda Vaccaro being strangled. (Short version: actress with a gravelly, husky voice). Yes, I can still type, but first I have to unpack, clear my inbox and all that boring stuff.
High point of my weekend, which almost makes losing my voice worthwhile: a student telling me that she felt she should’ve had to pay a cover charge for the class in addition to the materials fee because I was so entertaining. I just glowed for a while after hearing that. Thanks. Also, that at least one person (you know who you are, down there in Austin) got my “I has a bucket” joke in nuno felting class…and then took me aside to say “I was the only one who got that, wasn’t I?”
I love yarn.
I love yarn people.
I miss my yarn people when it’s not TNNA — it’s like Christmas for me, except it comes twice a year.
You’ll find out several amusing reasons why I love ’em so much in the next post.
