Autumn Retreat Recap
Since I got back from the retreat last Monday, last week was fairly hectic. I am taking a quilting class, was exposed to H1N1 and I think I’ve dodged the ball, and had lots of work to catch up on. The retreat was awesome, and worth having the hectic week after.
This is what (a mostly empty) spinning room looks like at a retreat. We usually find our spot, and sit and spin or knit all day. The only reason this room is mostly empty is because this was close to meal time.
I should say that you could call our spinning retreats eating retreats with spinning. We eat way to much, and decadently for the weekend. Everyone has one meal to prepare (dinners are split between 3 people, breakfasts split between 2) for the weekend, and everyone pulls out all the stops. This year I had breakfast and made caramel overnight french toast with apples on the side.
This is a not so great photo of my lace I was spinning the entire weekend! I also had done half of the singles at home! Lace spinning takes a long time folks. I will however have 8 ounces and probably close to 2000 yards. I also know what I’m going to be making out of it. :)
Next year we’ll be back at the coast for the retreat. Their is nothing like staying in and spinning and chatting with friends while watching the waves crash and storm out the window.
