2016 Men's Knitting Retreat - Final Words

Community, relationship, connection...these all seem to be what I get out of the retreat each year.

Knitting?

Yes, it's a knitting retreat, but honestly, knitting and fiber pursuits are only the common bond that draws us together.  Knitting provides us an instant community...a community on which we can build relationships and connect deeply with one another.

That's where the magic is.

Despite haven taken a total of over 500 photos at the retreat this year, I didn't feel like I captured as many of the guys as I would have liked.  But here are the remaining photos, as yet unpublished.

Current Knitting

I continued working  on the toe-up Noro socks.


I was able to finish turning the second heel and now I just have some ribbing to do on both socks.
