Retreat memories



Well, the retreat is over.

Another eagerly anticipated retreat has come and gone. This year, 35 people attended. We laughed, learned new techniques, got to know each other better, and overall had a fantastic time. The setting was nice, the woods and the lake were all that we had hoped for. Even the weather cooperated. The lodge was nice, rooms were more like dorm rooms, but we spent very little time in them. The common room was great – lots of comfy chairs and couches. The area for training was set up to suit our needs. The food was good, and the staff was very accommodating to special dietary needs.

Walks in the woods, a bonfire on the beach Saturday night, classes taught on the beach, kayaking (Tanya brought her kayaks), massages, and a member sale. Goodie bags and door prizes, oh my. What more could a knitter ask for?

We learned how to do mobius, entrelac, double knitting, magic loop, way too many to mention.

We did a bit of shopping in Grayling at Parrots Perch on the way home.

The sheep came along, to help us enjoy the weekend.


Here we are with our retreat SWAG. Fantastic hoodies with the BSKG logo!














The dining room was very rustic.










The sheep take a break from their busy day.












The common area was so comfortable. We had many great conversations here.
