The number of years One has taught at Sturt Winter School, Mittagong, Southern Highlands, NSW.
The number of times sisters Heather and Barbara have come to the Wild Knitting Class - double trouble for double knitting! Thank you for coming again. You can come again any time!
The number of times we pulled out and started again, the number of cleaver peaks, and well... nowhere near the number of laughs we had on the way. Marilyn, you are a treat.
Introducing "Jester Cupper Tea "
The number we were until one absconded to WOODWORK before we'd even begun! You can't win 'em all.

Jo - quietly quietly you beavered away with the odd consult ... and then there was ....
"Loose Leaf Tree" !!!

Alex with her beautiful"Secret Garden"
Thanks Alex for the Cab(ernet) Sauv(ignon) conversion. Enjoy your new (old) lead light. And thank you for all the tea cosies :-)
The number of things One learned - which is that there is still so much to learn - but One knew that already - though a little reminding is in order every now and then.
The lovely Judy with her "Serendipity". And another thing One learned - spiral cable from Judy. Mind bending! Oh and that is her pill box hat wot everyone made on the first day as a way of discovering the technical tricks listed above.
...as in never say never. Sandra held steadfast in her mathematical calculations until an hour before the end on the last day when she spied that flaming yarn!
"Exuberance" was born!
As in "No Eggs Today" It was wool off a duck's back for the recycling Cas who ignored the synthetic polyfil bag and collected all our little scraps to stuff that bird. AND she turned her pill box hat into a beautiful baby's bonnet.
I DO love Sturt Winter School.
