Knitter's Review Retreat 2006 - Saturday

Howdy, from Walker Valley, NY!


I have started my moebius, thanks to Cat Bordhi's morning class:

Once you get past the cast-on and knitting the first row, it's smooth sailing


After morning classes and lunch, they brought in a few vendors (whoo hoo!):

KR stuff for sale - hi Clara!

Jennifer's pretty fibers


Morehouse Merino - I love that Cider Jacket


Katonah Yarn -- these people sell Fleece Artist and Handmaiden!


After dinner, more spinnin' and knittin':

I have a little video of my roommate spinning, but this wireless is too slow to upload it, so perhaps tomorrow or Monday....

And we got a super-sneak-peak at some new books coming out:

Publisher's inside scoop: these'll be on the shelves mid-December


Back in my room, I reviewed my unexpected stash enhancement:

From the vendors


From the swap table room


And now I lay me down to sleep.... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Hey, you were on a blue-green kick. Very pretty additions to the stash family. And I like that there's that one hit of red.

Hi Mary
Thanks for the retreat pictures. I forgot my camera this year- so I will have to enjoy yours.

Hi Mary--Just had to chuckle when I saw my Port-a-Pocket had found a good home. I knit many a sock with it while standing in line at the Iron Horse in Northampton waiting for concert doors to open. Just found I wasn't using it too much any more--happy knitting with it. (Nice haul from the swap lounge, too.) :-)
