I love people and I love knitting and there isn't any doubt about loving knitting people.
I have talked to large groups of people before, like a recent Saturday at the Friends of Buderim afternoon tea fundraiser. There were 130 of you easily. (see photo below)
I have taught before. Heaps. Not heaps of knitting. Some knitting. But I have taught heaps of other stuff before. Important stuff like how to play the violin and how to be very efficient at work.
So why am I feeling like a Nervous Nelly about Nundle?
Not that teaching knitting isn't important. It is probably more important than anything else. And anyway will I really be TEACHING knitting. I'll be telling stories and sharing the tips I know and discovering the tips you know and well... knitting with you.
There isn't anything at all scary about that. It will be great fun. There! I'm looking forward to it now.
I must remember to pack my woolly vests, and my scarves, and my leg ins, and my beanies, and my jumpers - that's just to keep warm girls.
It is below 10 degrees in Nundle.
Maybe that's what is making me nervous, me what grew up in New Guinea and lives in the sub-tropical Sunshine Coast.
