New Hampshire?!?

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who like Bob Wiley, and those who don't.

I love Bob Wiley.


Bob Wiley is the title character of the hilarious movie What About Bob? This comedic gem, starting Bill Murray and Richard Dreyfuss, is a kind of family cult classic. In fact, we've watched it so many times that much of its dialogue has become part of our functional vocabulary* - so it's no surprise that when I told my nearest and dearest I was heading to New Hampshire at the end of July, they all responded in exactly the same way.

"New Hampshire?!?"

Yes, New Hampshire. Not to Lake Winnipesaukee, but to Manchester, New Hampshire, for the Knit and Crochet Show, a glorious joint convention of the Crochet Guild of America and the Knitting Guild Association. With knit and crochet classes for all skill levels, plus yarn bombing, celebrations, banquets, and shopping, it promises to be a wonderful woolly adventure.

Vashti Braha has kindly invited me to sit in (with samples) on her Intro to Slip Stitch Crochet Technique class; I'll also be taking a class or two myself, and betweentimes revelling in yarny companionship.

It's a beautiful day in Manchester, New Hampshire. Hope to see you here!

*"I feel good - I feel great - I feel wonderful." "I said good MORNING, Gil." "There are two kinds of people in this world - those who like Neil Diamond and those who don't." "I need, I need, I need; gimme, gimme, gimme!" "A dog, a frog, a log ... a poodle, a noodle, a doodle...." "I'm taking a vacation - from my problems!""Is this hand-shucked?" "He's not gone - he's never gone!" "If I fake it, I don't have it." And the list goes on and on.... :)
