I’ve decided to retire Maude. I’m now at a point in my weightloss where there’s no way of salvaging Maude. While I hate to see the yarn be wasted like that, I’m not very upset. Being too small for something is just fine by me!
A friend is opening a knitting store in August and she’s asked me to teach some classes (yes, plural). She said she thinks I have a good grasp of techniques and she’d like them to be technique-focused. I have no idea what to teach! Some ideas that I’ve mulled around:
- Combined or Continental Knitting
- Top Down Sweater
- Something cable-y
I really have no idea though, so I’m taking any and all suggestions.
For those of you who either have taught or work at a yarn store, what amount should I ask to be paid?
It’s tonight! I’m meeting Kim for dinner beforehand as well. I have a big document to get out by noon today, and I’ve been thinking the dinner and meetup is my reward!
I had dinner at Ruby Tuesday’s last night. I’m not usually a huge fan of chains, but this one is different. Their entire menu lists the fat, calorie, net carb, and fiber content for EVERY entree! I was able to confidently order things off the menu and know I was keeping on plan. For those of you doing Atkins, there had to be 40 different things to choose from – entrees, wraps, salads, and sides. I ordered a seasoned Tilapia topped with shrimp and a cream sauce. For sides I got steamed broccoli and mashed cauliflower. And for dessert I had their 1 carb cheesecake. VERY GOOD! What I love the most is the fact that they let you choose what you want because their entire menu lists the nutritional info. Very liberating to be able to look at a whole menu and make choices without being afraid of hidden carbs. And if you’re counting fat grams instead of carbs, the menu is for you too. That’s the best part. Friday’s does low carb. Applebee’s does Weight Watchers. But Ruby Tuesday’s is giving you the choice. I’ll definitely be back.
