Queueing into Marshfield for our family reunion is rife with the joys only the Midwest embodies yet the time together is the most calming and inspiring of the year. What a glorious retreat it was.

Oh wonderful! Thank you for posting that picture of Greg in Linda's entry. Debbie described it, but it's hard to do something like that justice without a picture.

Oh how I missed you guys. Next year in Marshfield!

It was a GREAT retreat! And made even better by our time in the car together...

Oh, So nice to see Greg and Marilyn. And LOL funny with Greg in the contest! Thanks for that. C-

Oh dear gods, I need that sweater. I haven't got the new Workshop - perhaps I ought to...

The yoke sweater makes it almost worth buying a new copy of Knitting Workshop....

AND I have such a hard time picking up the dropped cast on stitches. Just found a good youtube video by KNITfreedom that is a good explanation. Not as wonderful as Camp......but still useful.

Thank you for the post! I go to retreat 3 and missed seeing the sweater in your picture! Did someone in your session bring the tiny tribute sweaters? I didn't see that either! I am in knitting camp withdrawal. Your post helps!

I agree that we need to pay attention, but not just to the things around us. It is really important to listen to that little, niggling, energy that is saying, "This. Yes, this!" In 2006 I started knitting again (learned and quit young) because my daughter-in-law, an accomplished knitter, asked if I was interested. It took 2 more visits for me to finally say, "Okay, give me some needles," and I was off. I'm so glad I listened and so glad I said "Yes." Thank you for the inspiration, Janene!
