Orlando & Winding Down

I'm just back from teching at the wonderful Magical Fiber Fantasy Retreat, put on by Amy and Scott (yes he wore his kilt) of Ross Farms. I was the sole spinning teacher surrounded by knitterati, Kirsten Kapur, Tanis Gray, and Alana Dakos. There was an amazing marketplace full of yarn and fiber, put on by the LYS Four Purls.

My students were some of the most curious I've ever had, and you know I love to answer questions. They spun up a storm, and one even bought herself a new wheel from Four Purls. Of course, I didn't take pictures.


There wasn't enough time go into any of the parks (I should have planned better), but a group of us did a bit of shopping at Disney Springs. How does anyone choose from all of the pins they have there?

One of my favorite bits about this trip is that it was snowing at home, and I was looking at palm trees in 80 degree weather.

That was my last teaching trip until January 2019. It's time for me to wind down, be festive with family and friends, review 2018 and plan for 2019. I'm going to do a lot of crafting in the next few weeks, I can't wait.

For those of you wanting an Isobel update, she passed all of her kidney stones, but Cystzilla isn't shrinking and may be growing. She has an appointment right after Thanksgiving and I'll be going along. Thank you again for all of your good thorughts for her.
