I just don't have the words to explain the Retreat. Like-minded individuals speaking the same knitterly language. New friends made. Connecting faces to online names. The sharing of tips and techniques. The laughter, the jokes, the chatter. The moments of quiet reflection on what path our knitting may take. The questions, the answers, the ooohs and ahhs and hugs. Watching all the different ways one can knit. Meeting knitters who have been knitting for sixty years or for only a few months. The fibers, the colors, the finished and unfinished projects.
The photos can't even begin to describe the passion.
and spinners everywhere.
and baskets of fiber goodies.
A piano top full of swap yarn
and vendors too.
A knitting muse perhaps?
And a few Night Owls.

I wish I had taken a picture of every knitted item I saw--well, maybe next year!
