Just had the best weekend - knitting camp at Wollongong's fabulous Mt Keira Scout Camp with a bunch of fabulous women. I've been looking forward to this for so long!!
Made sure I packed enough projects:From bottom right - Pearl Buck, yarn options for a new project, February Lady Sweater and McDreamy socks, which I'd hoped to get finished, but didn't quite! I guess it was really enough for at least a week I'd say, but you have to be prepared for all eventualities - I mean, something could have happened to force us to stay up there for a week, you never know! Also remembered to pack some wine, some chocolate and some timtams, as well as nice tea bags.
Apart from much knitting both inside and out:
there was dyeing (I didn't do any, but others did - check out Ailsa's red 'n' yellow striping sock yarn there);
andin the outdoor chapel up the walking track from the lodge where we spent most of our time:
and Christmas in June dinner on Saturday night:with much hilarity (I guess you had to be there!) (oh, and the eggnog helps too!):And for me, my first fair isle:
I can't begin to tell you how much I loved myself this weekend knitting this!!
Best of all, uninterrupted knitting time with fabulous women, with someone else cooking for us. Oh, I wish I could go to knitting camp every weekend!
