The Needler’s Retreat 2015 begins this afternoon at 5:00pm. We will be having our usual private soirée with the official troublemakers and lovers of non-dairy creamer (Bailey’s) an hour or two ahead of that. I love these gals and it’s a treat to spend time away from all other concerns and be immersed in the craft we all love. BFF and I have the ‘honeymoon suite’ again this year. Yes. We really do call it that. You need a ‘backstitch pass sl st over’ to get in with the punk rock purlers 😀
I’ll be back with stories and photos next week and until then happy knitting and don’t ‘ss any knits or p2togs’ that I wouldn’t do!
Not your Grannie’s Knittin’!
Cheers all! ~ kei

It’s kind of like a yarn bomb Friday because… I have nowhere to put the darn stuff!
I will spare you a photo of my “Guest Room”, where I try in vain to pretend that my yarn doesn’t live there.
Oh well… All the more reason to knit faster!

The fifth and final clue for Addewid arrived at nine am, my time on Friday morning. I was still scrambling to get through Clue four. This is rare for me, I’m usually done and waiting impatiently for the next clue. I’m happily working away on Clue 5 now and looking forward to getting this one finished up.
The Pleasance shawl has got a little love; I’m halfway through the lace chart and still marvelling at the softness and sheen of the Serenity Silk.
What’s up next? I couldn’t resist the upcoming “Oliver Twist” KAL with The Unique Sheep and Earthfaire. I’d wanted to try the “Luxe” base and found an excuse! My yarn and beads are winging their way here for the 19 September start date for this one.

It’ll soon be time to start planning what to take along with me for the 2014 Needler’s Retreat, though I can’t believe that I’m saying that again so soon! I’m planning to have the “Tipsy Lizzy” shawl blocked to show off as I purchased the Hedgehog Fibres BFL Lace there last year and if I can get super inspired, I’ll whip up some socks from the gorgeous Riverside Studios silk fingering that was my other 2013 purchase.
