Annie Modesitt

Last Tuesday at the Minnesota Knitters Guild Annie Modessitt came and talked about how she designs from historical paintings. Her historical patterns are the subject of the book she is working on now. She explained her history with Combination knitting. I bought her book Knit With Courage Live With Hope which chronically her first year living here in the Twin Cities as she made frequent trips to Mayo while dealing with an illness. Also bought her other book Confessions of a Knitting Heretic. Both books look interesting and I look forward to reading them both.

Three of us went to Kelly's Knittervention last Friday night and had a great time. I bought the yarn for my Knit-A-Long slippers. Kelly hosts an open knitting night at her shop on the third Friday night of the month. We all bring snack to share as we knit and gab. I don't think we will be able to make the December one but plan to be back up there in January.
