Post Retreat & Mini FO Post

I know.
I know I said I would get a ton of photos taken.
I would post a HUGE Finished Object post.

but ...

I got a chest/sinus virus and while I wasn't totally down and out for the weekend, I wasn't up to snuff.
I took five pictures.


I did get a lot of stuff done/caught up/started

I barely made a dent in the bottle of gin I brought.

All that aside, it was a great weekend.
I love the ladies that I spend it with.
We eat well.
We all knit our various projects.

Betty taught a class this year that was really well done.

I might teach a class next year, just need to talk it out. 

First Finished object: 12th Man Eye on You for Prima Bistro. Pattern available thru Yorkshire Yarns in Lakewood Washington
Ever knit a fair isle hat in a day? I did.
Yarn: Cascade 220 superwash Used two balls for both hats, possibly have enough for one more.
Needles: 7 for the corrugated ribbing, 8 for the main hat.
Love: I believe that the owners of Prima really really like them.!

Second Finished Object: Simple Beret by Hannah Fettig
Yarn: Madelinetosh fingering weight (i tossed the label)
Needles: 1 and 3
Love: I gave it to Nina and she loves it. It feels amazing and has great great drape.

This next photo was not taken at the retreat but the project was started on Saturday and the body finished Monday.
Pattern is Twiggy by Jane Richmond. Yarn is Rowan Big Wool. Just waiting for my size 15 16" circulars to arrive so I can knock out the sleeves.

Happy Thursday!
