I met a lot of very supportive people from all over. The ladies from Moncton were fun, supportive, knowledgeable, friendly and made me feel right at home. Tanya arrived in her completed shawl we had (Heidi, Tanya, and myself)decided to knit from Folk Shawls. You know the shawl I have only made a start on.It is lovely.
Catherine whom I usually sat beside gave a wonderful demo on Navajo plying.
Linne(sp) God love her attempted to show me how to spin on her wheel. There was an exercise in patience on her part and one of futility on mine.Thanks Linne.
Cathy a retired RN from my hospital, whom I have not seen for years and I had know idea she was a spinner,was there. Just the same as ever. Full of humor and a great spinner. Hey Cathy I have been looking at wheels and may actually purchase one! Pictured her helping a beginner spinner Leah. Leah made leaps and bounds with her spinning during the retreat.
Steph from the Chapters knitting group arrived for the day on Saturday.Steph was spindling at Knit in Public day and unbeknown to her gave me the bug. Her wheel was very cool as well. Umm, I can't remeber the name of it but Staph was cranking out some fine singles.
Below are various pictures of the Haloween costumes. I include the Chicken hat in defference to my hubby who keeps chickens.
There was so much to do at the retreat and so much to learn. The shopping was fabulous and I look forward to seeing everyone next October in PEI.
