Is it cold enough for you yet?! Just kidding. It is cold, and I hope you’re able to keep the heat going and staying safe. I find more troubling the annual challenge of writing 2014 on anything, including this email! It took me a few times to get the muscle memory going while typing. So, here we are in 2014. I hope you all had a safe and wonderful New Year’s Eve celebration… I did, staying up with the kids and friends well past midnight.
I also rang in the the New Year with a wonderful day earlier this week watching my friend Marty Walsh take the oath of office as Mayor of Boston. My mom’s favorite part of all the festivities is Marty’s references to being a kid from “Taft Street”, the street where she grew up and raised us with my grandparents. It is so exciting to be that connected to his success. We are all very proud of him and wish him all the best in this great adventure!
At the Stitch House I am very proud of all the wonderful things we have happening here in this new year. We have a bunch of new sessions for Knit 101, great workshops for Knitters looking to develop their skills and more advanced activities for the rest of you! I hope you will find something for you – – if we don’t have it scheduled, please make a suggestion and we will try to get it going!
P.S. If you’d like the pattern for Vortex, please email me and I’ll send it over.
