Our life is a bit topsy turvy right now. We are living in the basement because we’ve pretty much moved out of the top level while the floor is torn out and replaced. Both of us have had weekends away recently, and, well, it goes without saying that work hasn’t slowed down.
But right now I want to take a moment out of the craziness to relive last weekend, spent in the North Woods with a bunch of awesome knitters.
Lisa and I drove up together. We were nearly eaten by the world’s largest walleye. Luckily, he must have sensed our sympathy to all things Scandinavian (you can tell this from the way we dress) and spat us out.
We arrived at Camp Widgiwagan just in time for dinner (gourmet pizzas at a Y camp) and then settled in for a wonderful evening surrounded by yarn and knitters. It was so wonderful to just wander around the room looking at everyone’s work and all the great yarn that Sisu Designs, the sponsoring shop, brought to the retreat.
Project show and tell was great, but I would overload the server if I showed it all. I did want to show the really nice shadow work in this scarf. Cool, eh? The rest can be found on my Flickr account, here. http://www.flickr.com/photos/17268800@N03/?saved=1
And here is a standout, even if it wasn’t knit. In the “It’s a Small World” category, the creator of this gorgeous thing, Anna, knew Lisa and my names from our dog sledding experience - she processed the forms for Outward Bound!
I’m exhausted just recounting the fun. I hope you had a good week and have some time to rest this weekend.
