Retreat! Fourth Year and All Went Well

Our 4th annual knitting retreat is over and done; as far as I can tell it was a success.

Our first evening we had a Yarn Tasting Happy Hour presentation at our cabin by Sheryl from Serendipity Yarns in Buena Vista. It was fun with a viewing of new yarn offerings and some fun prizes. Will plan to do that again next year.

On Saturday, some went off to shop for yarn early, some went for coffee with friends and I took a small group on a scenic tour around BV before yarn shopping. We discovered the historic Midland Railroad Line tunnels on the east side of the Arkansas River. That was fun. And we drove as far up the Cottonwood Pass that we could before we found the snow covered portion near the top. Then we turned and headed back to town to shop for yarn and gift items.

In the afternoon the group gathered for a knitting lesson to make a bulky weight hat that was so fun they all managed to finish their hats to wear home on Sunday. Good thing because the weather had turned to cold spring overnight and the hats felt good on.

I am already making plans for next year with the ideas that were suggested from this one. And enjoying the addition of Ms. Purl Sheep with the clothing that one of my fabulous knitters made for her. It was lots of fun to see everyone and spend some time knitting and relaxing together.

Thank you all for joining me for this fun event.
