Quote of the day

In the rhythm of the needles

there is music for the soul.

meeting god

Today was D-day.  I participated in a workshop, given by Brandon Mably.

It was.....  amazing. Brandon was witty, funny, inspiring, he gave us all a boost.  We picked colours, knitted poppies, added accent colours, found contrasts, had fun and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.

And then - very silently - almost unnoticed, God entered the room, disguised as Kaffe Fassett. 
the 2 colour guys and me
 He just sat there, knitting a gorgeous scarf in many colours. I was surprised, you always make a picture in your mind of somebody you've never actually met.  He is much taller than I expected.  And although he's quiet in a corner, I had the impression he has seen and heard everything.  His eyes have a twinkle, and he is a very very kind man.

These are some of the pictures I took with my mobile phone, so the quality isn't top.

Many thanks to the organisers of this workshop, it was all perfect.  I do hope this calls for an encore !

Just one remark : travelling from my town to Leuven is only about 130 km.  By car you have to pass Brussels, known for its endless traffic jams.  To avoid these I decided to take the train.  I got up a 5.30 this morning, took the 6.42 train, arrived at 8.30 in leuven.  So far, so good.  But returning, the train was seriously delayed and I got home at.... 8 pm. Famished.   (but happy...)
