foreign exercises

So I've finished my first week of teaching and I'm really impressed by some of the things that are already coming off their benches. I set them practical exercises in idea development this week and they're getting excited, as am I. Here's the group...

He is the all knowing most excellent technical guy for the studio. He is also studying for his masters in blacksmithing and I want to take him home.

This is Tonis (again funny things above the first vowel) he sits at the bench behind me.

Are you defiling those matryoshkas I spy on your bench, Ms Davern?
I hope they are undergoing respectful dissections!
Thanks for the adorable pressie - even if I do have to wait months to receive it.
Love, KnitterGirl

promise me faithfully that you'll keep blogging, Anna.

I'm so looking forward to following all this.

Almost as good as being there.

Well, maybe not quite that good.

But still good.
