Okay, I did it. I signed up for Stitches Midwest.*
Three classes, two in knitting lace and one in intarsia.
It looks like a lot of classes are already full. None of the poncho sessions has sold out, which gives one hope.
I feel like I've crossed a bridge of some kind.
Could stash acquisition be next?
*At least, I think I did. I registered through the Web site, which should be in a Web design and development textbook under the chapter heading "Don't Ever Do This." All I can say is, oy gevalt.
