2018 Men's Spring Knitting Retreat!



Coming soon to a web site near you...yes, we will be opening registration for this year's Men's Spring Knitting Retreat at Easton Mountain this Saturday, January 6, 2018.

Registration Frenzy!

For last year's Men's Knitting Retreats, most of them sold out pretty quickly, so the demand for these events has been increasing over the years.

It used to be that I worried for months that I might not make my financial goals once I'd opened the retreat for registration and now my biggest worry is apologizing to the men who weren't able to get into the retreat because it sold out in the first 8 minutes!

So if you or anyone you know is interested in the 2018 Men's Spring Knitting Retreat, make sure they're at their computers at 10:00 am EST sharp next Saturday if they want to secure a spot.

The announcement/link as to where to register will be e-mailed to about 300 guys on the notification list and also made on Ravelry and Facebook:

We've also scheduled a second Men's Knitting Retreat at Easton Mountain for 2018 in the Fall.  We're hoping that doubling the annual capacity will satisfy more guys in 2018.


Current Knitting

Just continuing to try and finish up all my left-over W'sIP (I have two on the needles, but I'm only working actively on this one):



I'm debating on whether to just keep this one as a wide scarf, or whether I should graft it to the beginning to make an infinity scarf out of it.  Thoughts from those that might wear something like this would be appreciated.

I have also knit and ripped out and reknit (three times) the same pair of socks on my Gearhart CSM.


With all the help that Thaddeus gave me with re-furbishing my machine and getting me set back up to crank out socks, these will be his if they fit him well enough.  I still have to graft the toes and make minor adjustments to the heel, but this pair took me about an hour of actual knitting time to make.
