I threw caution to the winds this morning and registered for SOAR. I have never been to Pennsylvania before and am excited to visit the Poconos. My first choice for the workshop part of the retreat is Deb Menz's carding class and my second is the Estonian lace spinning and knitting with Judith MacKenzie and Nancy Bush. Vivian Hoxbro is also going to be teaching there and I hope to be able to take her class for the second half.

This has been/is going to be an exciting year for attending retreats. The dye retreat is coming up in June as is the ALA conference and Book Expo. Between retreats, day job and conference planning it's a busy year.

...but there are fo's. I finally finished the twisted lace scarf that anyone who has ridden in my car in the past six months has seen languishing. That's the good thing about attending a conference--lots of time to knit and no one cares!

Zora will be two a the end of this month and it hardly seems possible. We are still Monday buddies for awhile longer but nursery school is looming in her future.

Both my daughters celebrated birthdays in the past week and if I didn't feel old enough that fact pushed me over the edge.
