I spent the weekend at Lake Ida, guest of Peggy, along with several others of our knitting group. It was tremendous fun.
Despite the evidence, we did a few things besides knit. We kayaked (that is Annie M’s, son, Max, showing his form) and swam, played with two excellent dogs (Emma and Ellie), and visited a most excellent local yarn shop, Gallery of Dreams. Here are Carrie and Judy, daughter and mom, who were delightfully patient with us as we picked out our purchases. We were a bit like a swarm of locusts hitting them. Carrie is starting a nice little blog detailing her knitting adventures.
Prize for best project went to Peggy, who finished the knitting on this and then felted it into this. She also got a big start on a mitered bag a la Modesitt. Here I am with her as she shows off her work and I show off Annie’s work on my head!
Lisa asked me what my peak moment was as we were driving home. I struggled to figure it out because there were so many. Then it hit me – it was hearing the loons. It seems absolutely decadent to have all this knitting and loons, too.
I hope you are having plenty of peaks this week.
