On Teaching Crochet...

Just a quick post today to ask a supremely important question. Well, not really, but I am curious. I'm considering teaching crochet classes independently. Meaning, I will charge a set fee for a specified 1-3 hour class time with the supplies included in the cost of the class.

So, if you live in AZ, and you want to learn to crochet, or would like to learn a specific technique, would you be at all interested in taking a crochet class? Or I'd consider doing online classes if there is enough interest.

Much thought has gone into this possible endeavor, but will need to do a bit more research on how to proceed.

Fall in Northern Arizona

I'm thrilled with how my Multnomah Shawl came out. This is one of those patterns that I just saw and just HAD to make. I found the perfect yarn for it on Etsy one day, from a wonderful shop Markkas - this yarn was dyed beautifully, and I could not be happier with the colorway for this shawl. Beautiful browns and greens so remind me of Northern AZ in the fall.

You see, Northern Arizona does have lots of trees. Really! I know, it's hard to believe, because Arizona is associated with heat and dirt and sand and cactus and, well, you get the picture. But Northern Arizona is gorgeous. If you have not been to the Grand Canyon, I highly recommend you see it. And you will also see the beautiful "high" country in Arizona as well. Someday I will share some of my favorite places to go up north with you.

But for now, may I present my Multnomah Shawl (first before blocking) I am always amazed to see how blobbish lace projects look before blocking.

And while blocking:

Isn't it a beauty? Not to toot my own horn, but really, I love it. Many thanks to the fabulous Kate Flagg for creating this wonderful pattern and sharing it with us!
