Fiber Camp

Last weekend, my friend Roberta came up for a visit. We had both been wait listed for Meg's Knitting Camp, so we decided to have a Fiber Camp of our own.

We did the usual camp activities. Mini-workshops to learn new things, went to the obligatory WI Friday night fish fry, spent one night watching fiber DVD's--this time Patsy Z's, not one by Meg. And, we had show and tell.
You've already seen my Forest Path, DFS and Hawaii Charlotte. But Roberta brought her Douceur et Soie scarf from Victorian Lace Today, her DFS and gorgeous pink Hanami. Her Ravelry ID is Robedia--go check out her projects page for more lovely lace knitting.

Oh, and we went on a stash enhancement expedition, too. Found a lovely new knit shop up in Door County called Spin. Here are my purchases.Some Silk/Cashmere from Jade Sapphire, a skein of Jitterbug, Addi lace needles, Wallaby pattern all fitting nicely into this fun basket from Lantern Moon. Probably would have spent more at knitting camp, but definitely wouldn't have had more fun.

Watch for upcoming blog posts about our adventures in drum carding.

It all looks like so much fun! Glad you had a good time together, and I definitely see you are keeping your pink theme going! lol

Mmmmm, just look at that mouth watering pile of lace! Boy, that looks just scrumptious. I'm looking forward to the drum carding adventure.
