Goddess Knitters

09 March 2010


I know I owe you a post regarding Stitches and all the fun we had, but this morning this was on the Today Show and I really needed to share it with you.

Betsy McCarthy is not only a friend of mine I am proud to say, but she is a fantastic teacher as well. If fact, 6 years ago I learned to knit my first sock ever in her class at Black Sheep Gathering. I had just started knitting again and decided I needed to try something new. I signed up for Betsy's class and it was just perfect. I'm sure that after having me in class all day Betsy probably had to go immediately back to her hotel and lay down with a cold cloth on her head. I can sometimes be a "special" student.

Betsy was great and since that time we have become friends, meeting up at other events, i.e Madrona and Sock Summit. Each time I am fortunate enough to see Betsy it's like we just saw each other yesterday. She is one terrific person!

I am really proud of the segment on the Today Show and even more proud of Betsy! If you ever have the opportunity to take a class from her, do it. It will be one of the best things you've ever done.

Congrats, Betsy! Way to go!

p.s. Stitches report coming soon!

    I'll have to pull that book out again. I do remember liking all the patterns in it.

    Great interview. By the way, someone on Rav linked to the AARP site 'cause their video clip was a bit longer.
