The day started with the Lady of the Lake rising up out of Glover’s Pond to give us her magical knitting needles. Forget Excaliber – the world can be saved with knitting. (I have a feeling this will be a recurring theme on this website.)
We did have a magical and relaxing weekend. I have quite a bit that I’d like to share – but I think it is going to have to come out on its own time (in drips and drabs, if you will) as I have much catching up to do at home. I just wanted to write a quick entry to let everyone know that we had a great Fibre Fallout Retreat! The guild members of the North Country Spinners were all friendly and chatty and made us feel very welcome. Besides the wonderful hospitality, the classes were great. As a matter of fact, think it would be an understatement to say that the classes we took were exceptional.
On our trip down to NJ, Elizabeth and I listened to an episode of Cast On (I think it may be #35) that had this spoof at the beginning about stalking Knitwear Designers. It was so funny – but that is exactly what we were doing- stalking the elusive Fiber Artist! We were officially stalking Rita Buchanan, but now that we have met Annie Modesitt, we will probably stalk her in the future and I would advise anyone who gets a chance to try it too. It is SO worth it!
Who shall we stalk next??? Any suggestions?
Ok, I’m writing way more than I intended to as “I have miles to go before I sleep.”
I leave you with this photo of E and me in front of “Lodge A.” What do you think? Do we just have to be sisters?
