The place: Easton Mountain
The time: This past weekend
The event: Men's Spring Knitting Retreat organized by Joe and Ted.
Thirty two men gathered from across the country and Canada to knit, spin, teach and share knitting and spinning. We also shared much laughter, excellent food and stories of our lives. It's really difficult to express how special and almost magical this past weekend was. So, I'll give you some photos to share some wonderful memories from some men who knit.
One of Ted's shawls. Ted is a master lace knitter, and I was fortunate to attend a lace knitting workshop run by him. Maybe someday I, too, can knit something this spectacular:
My favorite pictures from the weekend show exactly what the weekend was about - men getting together and sharing and helping and enjoying the process of knitting. Sunday morning my friend Van was getting some help from Ted with his very first sweater:
Is that a look of concentration, or what??
The weekend was a very special moment in time, and I think we all walked away with some very wonderful memories, and a sense of community that will always hold an important place in our hearts.
Now, I have some lace knitting to practice. Have a great night.
