Good company, great food and a lot of knitting...

...I enjoyed a little piece of heaven this weekend :)

Each year a group of knitter friends plan a weekend trip away to knit, eat, hang out and enjoy each other's company. The weekend event is named Camp WannaKnitKnit, and this year I was lucky enough to be invited along.

Now, it's called 'camp' but our lodgings were truly luxurious -- a fabulous home in Vail:

Stacey, aka the hostess with the mostess, needs to find herself a career in event planning because she had every detail down. The first surprise is that we all had lovely goodie bags waiting for us -- piddleloop bags, stitch markers, Red Rocks Fiber Works yarn (in a colourway named Camp WannaKnitKnit).

And we also got some Camp WannaKnitKnit sweaters or t-shirts! I can't wait to see some of the group pics of us all modelling them.

And if that's not enough, WOW we ate well! The meal responsibilities were divided up between the group, and the girls really pulled out the stops on their dishes.

Oh yes, and there was knitting of course. I devoted all of my knitting time to working on the corntastic baby blanket. Whew I'll be glad when that's all finished up. I'd better hurry - August (and a couple of babies) is only a couple of weeks away.

Roll on the 4th so that I can take advantage of the long weekend to catch up on some sleep!

What a fantastic weekend! The location looks perfect and Stacey was so generous in her hostess duties! Can I have Stacey?
