Yeah, Radegund, but some of us still need to lure you north to teach

People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the
sun is out, but when darkness sets in, their beauty is revealed only if
there is a light from within. -- Elizabeth Kübler-Ross

> I would love to learn to knit a snood... really what I'd like is just
shape that I'd need (would a round lacy circle with a means of
work?) and I've got plenty of sources for lace patterns that I could
use... probably would cast on a small number of stitches, join into a
circle and work round and round, increasing and yarn-overing until I get
what I need...
