Hi guys,
Just back from my first knitting retreat. I had a great time and met lots of wonderful guys. I learned many new things including a first lesson in spinning. The creations I saw were truly inspirational. Looks like I'm on that proverbial slippery slope! I'll let everyone know when I open that sheep & alpaca farm *grin*!


Oh how fun! I would love to go to a retreat. It is so nice to get recharged and inspired. I bet it is great to connect to other knitters especially other male knitters.

It was great to meet you, finally...and knit with you!
It's great when a guy you know only from this list turns out to be as interesting and wonderful as you thought he would be!

Rob, it was a pleasure to meet you! I'm so glad you had a great time. We'll see you again next year too, right?

Lemme know when you open that farm. I'll be there every weekend. Hudson isn't that far from Albany!

Rob! It was a delight meeting and knitting and talking with you... I love that the retreat gave space for a series of times to hang out, and not just over the span of an hour or two. I'm right with you on the inspirational creations -- wowza!

I'm really glad you had a good time! The retreats are amazing, and I'm sad that I wasn't there to visit with you as well! Remember what it feels like to be fresh from a weekend like this.... that energy can be empowering all year long!

Less than 2 months to Rocky Mountain retreat...I am counting down the time and looking forward to meeting the guys. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

John and I had a great time too. It was my fourth, his first. Now back to grabbing time to knit when we can. Sigh
