This afternoon we – Emily and I – will head out to Kiwi Cove Lodge to start this year’s Retreat – Brioche and Lace.

This will be my and Mad About Ewe’s Fourteenth retreat together.  Over the years, we have learned about lace – several times;  Socks, once or twice;  Beads – only once – I’ll have to work on that!  Entrelac; Moebius;  and the list goes on.  We learn on various projects and try out different yarns and share an amazing amount of information.

Not all of the Retreat is knitting related.  In fact knitting in only the vehicle that brings the Retreaters together.  We share time; we learn about each other; and we learn about joy each time we get together.

For some the Retreat started yesterday – they booked a room a day early to get together for even more time to visit!

This sharing is the best and most amazing aspect of our craft – the joy we take in our craft and the friendships that spring from our craft!

Happy Retreating

March 2017 - My new site is now up and functioning. I can blog, share my thoughts and photographs, and sell my patterns! So much happening in my life and all is creative and forward moving! Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Sept 2015 - I haven't updated this in a while! Still knitting, always knitting, I still teach and work at Mad About Ewe Fine Yarns. I also have designed for Vogue Knitting, Koigu Magazine, Zealana, Jimmie Beans, and Malabrigo, As of the beginning of 2015 I also became creative director of the Buffalo Wool Co., a new job that just flows along with what I already do. I am a knitting teacher and knitwear designer. I work full time in my LYS, Mad About Ewe Fine Yarns. I recently was 1st runner up in a Vogue Knitting Design Competition called the Magic of Mohair. My design was featured in the Early Fall 2011 Vogue Knitting. I will have another design in the Vogue Knitting Winter 2011 edition. I have recently purchased a Canon Rebel Camera and have started taking way too many pictures. I love this site for sharing my thoughts and pictures. Life is good!

    Met your early arrivals twice yesterday, once at Mad About Ewe, and later at the Crow and Gate, starting on my replacement sock LOL. First time knitting out, and look at the people you meet.
    They really piqued my interest; you may have another “local” attending next year. Enjoy, and do
    say hi to your early arrival group for me.
