      Great to hear from you! Let me remind you of what an inspiration you have always been for me in the land of knitting 🙂
      I hope all is well with you.
      The class at Knitty City today was a good one. I enjoy it so much when the class discusses the nature of fabric (on a micro-scale at the stitch level, as well as on larger scale of when it turns into a garment).
      Be well and stay in touch!
