The Retreat is over and like normal it went much too fast! Thirty-seven women, one baby, Emily and myself, adds up to forty-one jam-packed experiences! This retreat ran very smoothly and seemed to be well received. We saw some incredible projects – check out the slide show – from Anita’s not so basic socks to the most incredible lace and everything in between! Hamish, the baby, got to model quite a few garments.
Over the Retreat weekend Vogue Knitting put up their Spring Preview. I discovered this Saturday evening and went dancing around my room. The pictures are so beautiful! The magazine itself, Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2012 will go on sale early March! The shawl was knit with Sublime Cashmere Merino Silk 4-ply and the beaded socks with Lorna’s Laces Solemate.
I am working on a couple of idea’s for submission to Vogue – they are almost ready to submit and then we will see if there is any interest!
Meanwhile, the KAL is progressing quite nicely. I have just added the second section and I am working on the 3rd and 4th sections right now. There are over 200 people in the Ravelry Group and about 33 projects on the projects list and quite a few more queued. It is so exciting to the yarns and beads to combine and create new looks.
I love Fiona’s lace version. The extra repeats make the pattern much more interesting. I may have to try a lace version as well, maybe wide enough to be a shawl!
