w00t!

Guess who's going to hang out with Brooklyn Tweed in a couple of weeks?

I'll be taking the two Saturday classes.

The funny part?

When making plans like that I'm kind of an SNL Chris Farley "That's another one of those things I'm never going to do" character. I mean well but I never follow through and justify not doing so in any number of ways- most of them completely absurd. (e.g. what can Jared Flood tell me that I don't already know? HA! I'm an idiot)

Knit Night Chris proposed going. Knowing my ways of being I said, "Sign me up for whatever you do. I'll copy you." It didn't really occur to me that advance payment would be required and signing up was more than saying "hey, we're coming." (which would sort of prove the first statement about another one of those things...)

At any rate The Knit Night Sage Chris signed me up and fronted me the cash I didn't know I needed and I couldn't be more thrilled

I'm sure the classes will be great. I hope I get an opportunity to take a class with him at some point.

I wanted to do his classes too, but I work until about 4 Saturday morning and then Sunday afternoon, so no classes for me.

You lucky dog! Jared is a fabulous knitter and I've got a crush on him! Can't wait to read your post about the class. I know it will be a great time.
