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!
