Men's Knitting Retreat Show & Tell

One of the highlights of the retreat each year is the Show & Tell portion, where the guys get to display some of their handiwork to the cheers of the group.

Amazing Talent

Most of you know there are some incredibly talented and creative men who knit, so I always love getting to see what they come up with.  New knitters are wildly encouraged and long-time knitters get to have their work oohed and ahhed over.

One of the more challenging aspects of the retreat to photograph, given that it's at night and the lighting isn't optimal, the following are about ten percent of all the photos I took during show & tell.

Getting a good photo of the garment and the person that made it in such dim light has its challenges.  Hopefully despite the bad photography, you get a sense about the joy and pride we have in our work.  And while I wasn't able to photograph myself on the runway, I did end up showing and telling my murse and the niece blanket.

Current Knitting

I only took one project with me to the retreat and got very little done (and only on the days prior to the official retreat).

This is Noro Silk Garden Sock using my toe-up sock recipe.  I'm just about to "turn the heel" on the second sock, so I'll soon have a new pair of colorful socks to wear.
