House of Sammon - 4 sale!

I can't believe how behind I am on posting to this here blog. Lordy! I've been overwhelmed with The Big Move and the fact that I'm pretty addicted to Wii and Michelle is a bad influence. Anyway, if you're interested in checking out the House of Sammon you can contact my agent for a viewing. We're taking offers on Wednesday. The listing is here. Wish me luck!

Encore presentation- Improve your knitting/blog photography

By popular demand, Michelle and I will be teaching our Improve your (Knitting) Photography class at In The Loop Café on Sunday, June 16th.

The official class description is below and if you're interested give In The Loop a holler at
416-652-1024. Class size is limited. Hope to see you there!

Do you wish you took better photos of your knitting? Are you tired of washed out, blurry pictures of projects that you put hours and hours of hard work into? Are you confused by the buttons and features on your digital camera? Do you feel like your friends point and laugh at the photos you post to your blog or Ravelry account?

Take your knitting photography to the next level with this introductory course in basic photography techniques. Anyone can learn to take beautiful photos of their knitting and other craft projects, and you don't need a fancy or expensive camera to do it! In this hands-on course you will learn the basics of:

* Composition

* Lighting

* Focus

Bring your camera, the user manual (if possible) and a small knit project or two to practice on.

I'm still here!

Wow! Things have been a bit of a whirlwind since we decided to haul ass back to California. I think saying I'm overwhelmed would be a bit of an understatement. Paul leaves in nine days. If the house sells right away and we do a 60 day closing I'll be in Toronto until sometime late July? (What can I say, math is hard.)

The past week and a half we have been busting-a-gut to get the house ready for sale and it seems that the House of Sammon will be on the market starting this Wednesday. Open house will be this weekend... not sure of the time but if you're interested drop me a note. I have to say the house looks good. It's too bad that it took only a few weeks to get the house pretty much the way we wanted. Isn't that how it always works?

Anyhoo, once the house sells there will be the packing. And a yard sale. And I hope in between there will be hanging out with friends and knitting and seeing more of Toronto. Anyone want to hang out with a loser who is ditching an awesome town with awesome peeps? I have lots of open space in my calendar.

Takeover my Rogers Wireless number?

Just curious if anyone would want to take over my Rogers wireless number when I leave this summer? Probably a pretty silly question since everybody already has a cell phone and lots of people don't like Rogers (although I've been pretty happy with 'em) but I thought I would ask. Leave me a comment if you're intersted.
