June Knitting Retreat

 Yippee found a way to get photos!!!!
Our June knitting Retreat
Apparently 9 O'clock breakfast was a little early for some!!

Here we are practicing 'Bobs Mums Cast On' or I think it should be 'Bobs Mams Cast On' 
this was named by 'the girls' who are obviously Bob Dylan Fans.
The Official name for this cast on is 'the Elizabeth Zimmerman Elasticated Cast On'
I think 'Bobs Mams Cast On' has an interesting ring to it

 No need to look any further for wool than just outside the front door

We had such a laugh
and managed to get some knitting in too
along with some steeking !!!
Here are a couple of quotes of what was thought

Dear Louise
Thank you so much yet again, for your hospitality, great food, good music & wicked sense of fun.
suppose I should mention the great knitting tips & my final mastery of Swiss Darning (hurray). The retreat, in this beautiful part of Gods own Country!! helped me to recharge my batteries, forget work and have fun. My beautiful felted hot water bottle cover will remind me of the great break I had here. Best of luck with all the future plans - love Colette

Dear Louise
Thank you for a fantastic week of eating, drinking & of course knitting!! I've really enjoyed spending time in this lovely part of the UK. It was a fantastic relaxing time away from the hassle of everyday life plus the added bonus of learning new craft skills (win - win)
Look forward to a return visit
With Love

Just a wee note to say that i am trying all sorts of ways to download photos to my pc but am having huge difficulty.
While i should have been sleeping i have just thought of  something.  So watch this space.
All sorts of exciting things have been happening here and i am dying to share lots of photos with you.
