Yesterday I was so sick I didn’t even knit. (Now, that’s sick!) Unfortunately, it was also the day to teach my Beginners Knitting Class. And I had maximum enrolment. 😦
After crawling down the stairs, dragging my garbage can with me, I called the Shop – they weren’t open yet! So, I did what any sensible sick knitter would do, I called my husband. Lying on the floor, with my class enrolment sheet next to me, the very act of talking made me feel like retching. I gave him the names and phone numbers and asked him to call.
“Do you want to reschedule?” He asked.
“uhhaaaooouuuhhh” I moaned in response, realizing my schedule book was upstairs. I glared at the stairs. My nemesis. Oh for telekinetic powers….or memory enough to recall next weeks schedule.
I heaved myself up the stairs and collapsed in front of my bedside table fumbling for the black book that holds my short term memory: a terrible thing for something so small to have so much power.
I looked at next Wednesday, Beginners Circular Knitting. But no one had signed up last time I checked, I hazily thought.
I feel much better today. Time to call the Shop.
Back in August I rescheduled my Sock Knitting class to October, hoping for more than one student. Alas, no more students, but I feel bad about rescheduling again. I emailed my one student on Monday. Checking her response, in between gasps and moans last night, I discover she’s in the states for a funeral. So, I offered to reschedule the class to begin next week. And then thought, ‘what if someone else has signed up?’
I held my breathe and crossed my fingers while they checked Sock Knitting sign ups. Only the one. HOORAY! I never thought I’d celebrate not having students.
But, lo-and-behold, I do have enrolment for Circular Knitting (blarg!), which is the time slot I rescheduled Beginners Knitting to (double blarg!). So, now I need to reschedule Circular Knitting to later in the day! Sigh.
Who would’ve thought teaching knitting could be so complicated?
