School is Not in Yet

As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been having grandiose visions of where this blog can go – this puppy is not on a leash!

Unfortunately, I’ve let my “visions” run away with me (no, not to the extent that I need some pyschotropic medication – when I start hearing voices, THEN I’ll worry), and I plunged ahead, and began filming for my video knitting school.

This was a mistake.

It looks so easy when Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney both squeal, “I know! We can put on a show!  Yeah, we can use my dad’s barn!  We can get costumes left over from the school pageant!”  They didn’t have a director, a writer, a production assistant. They struck up the band, there were words and music, and thousands cheered. So easy.


This video knitting school is going to take some planning.  What I filmed yesterday is all over the place. I might need an outline. I might need a script.  A syllabus perhaps?  I might have to stop adlibbing so much. I might want to know where it’s going.

So, it’s back to the drawing board. But, now I see what I have to do.  Storyboard, outline, script, I got it.  I think.

But, while I’m in the planning process, here’s a peek at what’s coming (sort of) –

    First of all, I’m glad you’re back…..
    Second–this knitting school idea is a GREAT idea! I think you have the personality to pull it off and you are very well versed (obviously).
    You’re definitely on the right track….

    I admire your ambition! I would still be thinking about what I wanted to do, and would not even be close to getting it together to actually present it.

    I love the idea though, and I really hope you can get it to work. I for one would definitely be watching.
