Weekend Update: We kept things pretty simple this weekend. Friday night was pizza from Crust in Surry Hills. Saturday morning the Snook joined me on the train to Pennant Hills, where I was scheduled to give my “Welcome to the Knitternet” presentation at the library. It was great! There were about twenty knitters there, most of them a fair bit older than me. (Only one of them was from the Guild; the rest were unaffiliated local charity knitters so I tried to be a good Guild representative. Well, as good as I can be.) I talked for over an hour about the various knitting blogs, podcasts, retail, and pattern sites on the ‘Net, and I gave them advice on searching and security. (One big revelation was that most of them didn’t realise that you can have more than one email address!) The library had printed out the handout I’d sent, and the audience took down a lot of notes too. They all seemed quite energised at the end and inspired to get right on Ravelry. Afterwards, Atholie (aka GrandmaFlea) took the Snook and I out for lunch. A fun little outing! Back at home, the rest of the day was about napping, knitting, and staying cool. On Sunday, I headed out for a long run (10.5km) in Centennial Park in the morning. I was pretty slow due to the heat, but I felt good. (Good enough to start thinking about doing a real marathon next year. Eeep!) In the afternoon, we ran errands, worked in the garden, and baked a spinach pie. Now, I think I’ll tuck in early for bed…
