More retreat treats

I had a great time at our little retreat. Everyone laughed a lot, they were pretty game to sleep with strangers (some rooms had 6 beds) but earplugs helped.  As to actual knitting and dyeing, we split the class up on Saturday, so half dyed yarn and half worked on double knitting. And then we switched it up in the afternoon. This worked well as everyone was able to get individual attention. Here are a few more pictures from the retreat.

Knitters concentrating on their double knitting:

Close-up of some double knitting, you can see a few errant bars across the stitches but those were soon fixed. Everyone did a great job!

Kathryn‘s beautiful yarn, and Francine‘s beautiful shawl pins (and stitch markers) for sale:

And thematic cookies for everyone, made by my baker-daughter (who I may have mentioned in this blog, once or twice, or maybe three times, but whose counting.)

Lastly, Henry bids you adieu (with a little blue and green double knitting poking out from behind him), and says, thanks for the yarn, baby, just try to take it away, come on, try.
