Camp Wanna Knit Knit 2012

I just spent a fabulous weekend with good friends.  Each year a group of us head up to the mountains and lock ourselves away to spend quality time together and craft!  A great time, and fun to catch up with folks I hadn't seen in a while.

This year I took up the princess palace cross stitch to work on.  Granted it is not knitting, but I'm a little hooked on working on this.  I am now on page 2 of 9.  Maybe Naomi will get this in her teens, and not her twenties!

I'd also picked up some claudia hand painted fingering yarn and made good progress on a man sock for Joe.  No particular pattern - just a basic stocking stitch sock using size US2 needles.  It's going pretty quickly.

Each year at camp we get goodie bags and this year was no exception.  Stacey had found a great pattern for project bags, and picked out this cute sheep fabric.  A couple of us helped out to make these in advance of the weekend.  Such fun bags.

Hope you had a fantastic weekend too,

Hi Sam, I'm living in Co now :-) renting in Parker right now and hoping to buy a house in Castle Rock, we just put the offer in today. I've only been here 3 weeks. Hope we can meet sometime in the not too distant future, once I'm settled here. I'll be homeschooling dd this year, so not as much me time as I used to get.
