It's amazing how we manage to knit all weekend and never get bored. Lots of good company and always someone to help with a problem project:
We swapped yarn and patterns and Lisa brought homemade soap and jam:
Of course there was lots of beautiful knitting to admire. Here's Jocelyn in her Mavis sweater made with Noro Silk Garden:
Here's Donna in her beautiful Aristida shawl made with Cascade Pima cotton:
Marina knit this gorgeous sweater called The Rayleigh Tee and these pictures don't do justice to all the interesting details:
More pictures and some yarn crawling to talk about in a future post but for now it's back to my retreat project, the Ruffled and Ruched Scarf by Pam Powers:
Isn't this a beauty? Execept for the provisional cast on it's just garter and stockinette; a perfect mindless knitting project when you are spending more time talking and less time keeping an eye on what you are working on.

The sample project was knit in Malabrigo but I am knitting this with Cascade 220 Heathers.
Have a good week and check out Tami's blog to see what others are working on this week.
