RETREAT

Well, the 2013 retreat at the Ralph A. MacMullan Conference Center at Higgins Lake is officially over!  We had 40 Black Sheep attend, which is the highest number so far.  The weather was a bit wonky, but no one seemed to mind.  We knit, ate, drank, had massages, got henna tattoos, walked around, and, did I say, we knit!!!  A couple of Black Sheep even went kayaking on Higgins Lake early Saturday morning.

Here are just a few pictures of Black Sheep having fun.








 


We had a beautiful display of items making up our door prizes.  Here are just a few pictures.





Saturday we had a class on color pooling with Lynn Hershberger.  Lynn taught the same class at the Sock Summit.  It was a very interesting class and a great learning experience.  Thank you Lynn!

Thanks to all who helped in making this retreat the success it was.  And thank you to all who attended.  We love ya and hope to see you next year.  And, to those who couldn't make it this year, we hope you will be able to do so next year.  Just ask your friend and fellow Black Sheep who went how great a time we all had.

Hello, looks like you all had a wonderful time and I just wanted you to know how much I appreciated the Thank you card with so many signatures. That was extremely thoughtful and I hope who ever got the Tempted enjoys it.
