(Some serious knitters! Monica, Lisa, Ahnie, Sharon, Carolyn, me)
I hadn't signed up for any of the classes and hadn't really decided to go until just before we left. But, I am so glad I went. It is always difficult prepping to leave, and leaving Jeff and Astrid and Skag behind. Once I get on the road I always feel better. I also loved the fact that there was no cell phone service so they weren't attached to peoples' ears the whole time, and the only traffic that could be heard from any direction outside the hotel was train traffic. I felt as if we'd traveled back to a simpler time. It was incredibly peaceful. I came home refreshed (not so well-rested I have to admit - I stayed up both nights until my eyes would no longer cooperate for my knitting project)
My knitting buddies: Monica, Ahnie (she was untangling yarn the entire weekend and her hands were in perpetual motion as you can see), Lisa, Sharon and Carolyn. We were the youngest group of knitters in the bunch.
(This is where we were when we were not out on the ski trails or at a class.)
(Sharon is really not that short - she was standing in a hole)
I so wish I had gotten an action shot of Monica on her skis! She is 6 months preggers and so darn cute with her belly . I'm completely impressed with her balance on skis, too!
I think this retreat will be on the calendar next year.
