Well, my vintage knitting retreat came to a close on Sunday, and I have spent the last few days reflecting on the wonderful weekend. From fireside knitting to stories of Zippy the Chimp on Roller-skates, I can safely say that the retreat was a success. We were a small group, but all clicked instantly. By the end of the second night, we agreed that the weekend retreat felt more like a gathering of old friends. Here is a small collection of photos from the weekend, highlighting moments such as: surprise snow in April, meeting Hamlet the pet pot-belly pig, eating a delicious three course dinner, and finishing up our little vintage blouses! A huge thank you to Heidi, Sarah, and Liz for having faith in me hosting my first knitting retreat. I couldn’t imagine the weekend without you. 💕🧶🐑
