Since last week's Ta-Da! Tuesday, I've worked hard on the days I've worked but I also had a 4 day weekend in there so it wasn't too bad ;-)
This is a long post so bear with me!
The retreat center was beautiful, the food was good basic Southern fare, the weather was wonderful and still the company out-shined everything else combined. We really did have the best time and the only complaint was that it was too short...
We had a fiber dyeing class:
and a Socks-from-the-Toe-Up class:
and a Fair Isle class:
and a Twined Knitting class:
(I'm pretty sure I could smell burning toast during that complicated exercise... lol)
and last, but not least, we took a field trip to a beautiful Alpaca farm and fiber mill in Inman, SC:
Remember on cartoons when a hungry character sees a bird as a walking roast chicken?
I swear all I saw were skeins of hand-spun yarn when I looked at this guy!
Then it was just an 8 hour drive back on Sunday... Returning to work on Monday was difficult -- apparently programming isn't really my calling ;-) Although I hear retreat withdrawal is a real thing and that fondling one's fibery S.W.A.G. (Stuff We All Get) helps... lol.
Speaking of SWAG, come back tomorrow for a post on all the amazing things donated by the retreat sponsors! It's a mound of riches, let me tell you....
Happy Knitting Everyone!
