Knitting Camp!

Imagine a camp where all you do is knit. And camp. And meet some other knitters. And make smores. And knit! Elizabeth organized us, and The Other Knitting Camp in Wisconsin took place August 3-5, 2007. We had tons of fun, swapping yarn and knitting and getting rained on and hiking what seemed like a half a mile to get to the bathroom. Elizabeth did way more than her share of the work, and some guilt still lingers over that. We all agreed that it must become an annual event. Celtic Coyote and Pumpkinseed

Criosa and Kathrows

I failed to get a shot of Elizabeth. It might be that she was constantly on the move, or it might be that when she sat down and pulled out the most beautiful Fair Isle sweater to work on that I was too stunned to get a shot of her. I truly had the most wonderful weekend, laughing and getting to know this great group of knitters. Make your plans for next year!

I can't wait to do it again next year! It was great to meet you in person! And everyone else, too.

Don't feel bad about work distribution. Compared to the work in taking my family camping, The Other Knitting Camp was a breeze: no one groused about the food; no one fought, called each other names, or threw tantrums.
