Hey, I can keep a secret! Well, as long as it’s somebody else’s secret. I’m not so good if it’s my secret. I just get too excited.

The contract isn’t signed, but I have it in hand, and I’m completely confident we’ll be able to iron out the few little wrinkles. And I can’t stand not telling you any more. Small Knits Symposium will be in Bloomington, Indiana, at the Hilton Garden Inn, from April 24-27 (that’s Thursday evening to Sunday noon). All the classes and activities will be focused on small wearables: hats, mittens, scarves, gloves, cowls, shawlettes, and of course, socks.

If anything goes wrong now, I’m already pretty committed, so worst case? We put it off until 2015. But it’s going to happen, my friends. It’s going to be a party for about fifty of my newest best friends, to be exact.

You’ll notice I’ve got blog comments turned off; I’ll be setting us up a Ravelry group for interactive chatter very shortly. I’ll post SKS news here as it comes out, but the pre-party will be over there. Do come join us when the virtual doors open; it’s BYOB (and BYOK), so there’s no cover charge.


Really. As soon as the contracts are signed, I promise, I’ll tell you the who, when, and where. I’m working with a great hotel venue just off the town square of a small, pedestrian-friendly, shops-and-restaurant-dense city (where I’ve personally taken a lovely long weekend vacation). There’s one yarn store a block off the square and another just a mile and half away. I have two nationally-known teachers (and wonderful people!) interested in coming to show you how to do cool stuff, and an amazing guest speaker lined up.

Oh, and loot! I have lots of plans for the goodie bags. But now I am getting ahead of myself. First there must be contracts.
