The Men’s Spring Knitting Retreat that was held in NY sounded like a blast and I’m bummed I couldn’t be there.
So, I’m wondering interest there is in having a west coast Men’s Fall Knitting Retreat (MFKR). I would be willing to spearhead it if there are one or two of you other guys are willing to help. I have talked with QueerJoe and he is willing to lend some experienced advice.
I am thinking about either Oct 10-12 or Oct 17-19. There is a hot springs in the mountains east of Salem, OR called Breitenbush Hot Springs (www.breitenbush.com , check it out) where they also have a conference center. It is a 2-3 hour drive from the Portland airport. Cost would be the price of accommodations.
If you are interested in attending, comment here. If you are interested in helping to set up the MFKR, comment here and also send me a private message. I am posting this on MWK and on Ravelry in the MWK and Bear forums.
If a sufficient number of people are interested, I will set up a poll on the MWK site to get an idea of the number of men interested and which dates are preferable, then contact the folks at Breitenbush to see if they can accommodate us and what the cost would be.
