The super-duper KR retreat

Fast knitters like Rosebyany have already finished their New Beginnings Project. Fast and perfectionist knitters like rho have already finished and then frogged their New Beginnings Project. Out-of-touch knitters like me get around to posting pictures one month after the retreat.

I met online friends as well as knitters who read the KR newsletter but do not post on the forums. We laughed a lot for Vi, I learned the Moebius cast-on and got to buy some lace merino from Spirit Trail. DH was his usual self (very shy) but also pretty sick so he did not meet anybody. Everyone thought I had an imaginary husband (well, even if he were imaginary, he drove me all the way to the retreat and back -- how many imaginary friends would do that for you?)

Now that I think of it, most of my imaginary friends can't even drive! (Well, there's the one, but there have been incidents...)

I wish we could have spent more time together, instead of knitting like two ships passing in the night. Next time, though...
