a weekend retreat...

somewhere in Michigan...

Shoot, what a great weekend. I spent this last weekend with my knitting friends - Christine and Carolyn. And then Sarah (aka The Plucky Knitter) joined us for a a fabulous lunch at The Stray Dog and a little knitting too. We admitted this felt like a celebrity sighting, I mean have you ever knit with Plucky yarn? If you have not tried Primo - you must.

Carolyn's brother has this fabulous place near the lake in Michigan - it could have been in Maine - it was so charming, the decor was fabulous and it was so inviting. How blessed I am to have such great knitter friends - met through the internet, go figure. I regret that I didn't take many good pictures and pretty much none with people in it. I think I was having too much fun to think about my camera.

From chocolate covered cookie dough balls, to Fanta Ginger Ale with a little vanilla vodka, to a good night's rest, to some mind numbing knitting, to drawing names for a single sock swap - it was perfection. Thank you knitters!

I'll be back soon with a FO I hope - a boring infinity scarf is killing me...

A whole weekend - lucky duck! It's so nice to be with like-minded people who understand that knitting with Sarah is such a neat idea! I love the Primo....getting ready to knit with it in the very near future. It has had much fondling though! :)
