Too Much To Write About!

Often times I stare at a blank blog posting page thinking about what to write about, but today, I have so much I'm overwhelmed! I guess it has been a while since I posted.

Start With...
I guess I'll start with the Men's Rocky Mountain Knitting Retreat.

The weekend before last, 20 guys gathered at the Sunshine Mountain Lodge on Thursday afternoon (actually, due to a cancelled flight, I arrived at about 7:00 pm) to share in the fraternity of knitting. It never ceases to amaze me how magical these retreats can be, and Frank and Brady did an amazing job of organizing this one. They were also overwhelmed by the generosity of fiber vendors who help sponsor these events. Companies like Skacel and The Stitchin' Den were generous enough to even help sponsor a few guys to attend the retreat. Here's a sense of the swag that we had the chance to win.







The lodge was beautiful (Jeff and I actually saw a bear on our drive to the lodge!), the cabins were very comfortable, the food was exceptional and the hosts were delightful.

The guys that are compelled to attend these events are never anything short of amazing. With the one common factor of a love for knitting/crocheting/spinning/weaving (is that one common factor?), the group comes together in a way that I've never seen in any other group gathering. The rest of this blog post are photos of the guys who attended.

Next post will be about a visit we made to the Schacht spindle factory...I'll post soon, so keep your eyes peeled!
