How many does this slacker make it to each week?
Normally 2, sometimes 3. I think the boy would break up with me if I tried to go to all of them. On the one occasion I've made it to the Southern Cross, I left with the biggest dumbest smile because it was such awesome fun. My bad that I haven't made it back - the main excuse being the cost of petrol to get in there (lame, yes. but true).
The wonderful Cherie goes to Southern Cross and blogs about it, and her adventures of learning knitting. Hopefully I will get back there soon and have a load more laughs, and teach some new dogs old tricks!
Along with ALL of these, i'm going to be at the New Dowse on Sunday 23 and 30 May, 1pm - 3pm; teaching, giving away yarn for It's a Tree, and enabling all knitters and crocheters. So come along, and say hello, and have a yarn. If not, I forgive you, because I totally fail at going to all the knitty things I should, too!
