- She got a mess of large, heavy UPS parcels, which she locked up in one of the closets (after first carefully throwing my overcoats onto the floor).
- Victorine has arrived, toting her Singer Featherweight. The arrival of Victorine never bodes well for my sanity. She refuses to share Dolores's cushion next to the Victrola because Dolores hogs the blankets, so she's instead sleeping under my drawing board. This morning I forgot she was there until I felt something licking my bare toes.
The real reason I'm writing today is to let you know that 1,000 Knitters* is coming back to the East Coast. Thanks to the kindness and generosity of owner Jacquelynn, there will be a public shoot at her shop, Wool Gathering, in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania (about 30 minutes south of Philadelphia). We'll be clickin' and knittin' from 9 am-4:30 pm on April 19, 2008.
As Harry would say, "Cowabunga!"
*By the way, in the past month I've started getting a lot of requests to visit specific cities, which is incredibly exciting. At the moment, though, without any sort of underwriting (or a small, personal fortune) I can only travel with the project if my transport and accommodation expenses are underwritten. If you're interested in hosting a shoot, I've got more details on the 1,000 Knitters blog.
