The KNIT AND CROCHET SHOW started here in Portland yesterday ! "A knit and crochet retreat to nurture and expand your creativity and a shopping extravaganza for all of your stitching needs" put on by the Crochet Guild of America (CGOA) & The Knitting Guild Association (TKGA) Conferences. I belong to the Knitting Guild Association, so I got a discount on classes and free entry to the show.

I'm signed up for one class today---Melissa Leapman's (knitting) CELTIC CABLES. She wrote my all time favorite cable knitting book : Cables Untangled: An Exploration of Cable Knitting
If you live in Portland and haven't signed up for any classes yet--they have room left in many on over to the Doubletree Hotel (by the Lloyd center) and check out the yarn vendors and sign up for a class...see you there!

Quote for today: "The only place where housework comes before knitting is in the dictionary."

I love knitting cables. Haven't done it in years but it is one my favorite ways of knitting. This one is great!
