This weekend I had the amazing opportunity to attend my first knitting retreat! Andrea and I flew to Rochester Minnesota to spend four days with amazing knitters at the Zombie Knitpocolypse retreat! With all the knitting adventures I've been on a retreat had not been on the list yet, this was the perfect one to start with.
We flew in on Wednesday and had the first morning of our retreat on Thursday. From then on it was meeting new friends, taking classes, swaps, and parties. Susan B. Anderson was the guest speaker, which was so much fun and inspiring to hear her talk about starting her designing and how it flourished.
I took a class on Boomerang shawls with Steve and a heels class taught by another retreat participant. I have a few new heels I'm going to try with the 50 grams skeins I received in my swag bag!
We had a s'mores party and a popcorn party along with tons of giveaways and fun events. I met so many new people! And I can't wait to get myself in another retreat!
Oh, that sounds so dreamy! Knitting, new friends and good food - it can't get better :)ReplyDelete
