Photographing Your FO's class (taught by yours truly) Fiber Camp 2011
Saturday at Fiber Camp, this year at MIT. When I sat down in one of the classrooms, this is what was on the board. Do you love it? In the photo above, see the lower right, in particular.
It seemed smaller than last year, but with a nice assortment of classes on the board Saturday. The MIT hallway of rooms was a different vibe than the big party feeling at last year's venue. This did not stop the spinners from settling in one bit. That's Guido Stein, Common Cod knitting community impressario on the left.
My class was full of awesome students (as usual). I mean truly, I am blessed with having a great group every single time. I taught a quickie 1 hour class.
We ditched the classroom in favor of a foyer, to work with light. I like teaching in the round for a demo rather than to a rows of seats.
Special thanks to my niece Ariana, who was shooting some footage for her senior project documentary film (Tufts 2011) nearby, so stopped in to see me. She wound up being the class model. For anyone who was there: this is a photo about her, not about the knitwear.
Knitting with beads class. I learned 3 ways to put beads into my knitting.
Until now, I only knew zero ways.
See? Smarter. Although just spending the day in a building with this kind of entrance grew me some new synapses. Or at least I felt that way.
Much thanks to the Common Cod Fiber Guild. Nice work !
