Hey All! It’s been a whirlwind the last 7 days with lots of driving, lots of work, and a TON of fun!
Since last week’s Ta-Da! Tuesday, I’ve worked hard on the days I’ve worked but I also had a 4 day weekend in there so it wasn’t too bad 😉
This is a long post so bear with me!
On Friday, I left the house at 5 am to drive just north of Greenville, SC to the Asbury Hills Retreat Center for the First Annual South East Men’s Knitting Retreat (SEMKR)! We had about 20 guys gathered together for this first time event and we had a blast!
The retreat center was beautiful, the food was good basic Southern fare, the weather was wonderful and still the company out-shined everything else combined. We really did have the best time and the only complaint was that it was too short…
We had a fiber dyeing class:
and a Socks-from-the-Toe-Up class:
and a Fair Isle class:
(I’m pretty sure I could smell burning toast during that complicated exercise… lol)
and last, but not least, we took a field trip to a beautiful Alpaca farm and fiber mill in Inman, SC:
