The workshop lineup this year looks great. I’m really excited for some classroom time with Anna Dalvi, lace shawl designer extraordinaire and one of Ottawa’s  own. We’ll also have Natalie Servant and Mary Pat MacDonald to round out our talented teachers.

Needler’s is put on annually by Debbie Marshall of Sheeps Ahoy and is very much a unique and special event. The joke in these parts is that someone has to die and will you their spot on the attendees list. I am so grateful that no knitters were harmed in my having been added to the list!

Here is the lineup of classes for those interested and here are more photos of the 2011 get together, including our “Human Cable” demonstration with Fiona Ellis! Fiona Ellis *fangirls*

A visit to my doctor this afternoon for a day procedure – wish me luck – then Just two more sleeps before we leave. I think a river beach view, knitting, chat and a refreshing beverage or two will be the perfect restorative / recuperative 🙂
