Knitting Camp

Another Camp done, dusted and totally enjoyed!
There was knitting, of course. I cast on Em's Baroness Beret just before I left on Friday, and finished it late on Friday night.

Ailsa finished her Autumn Rose, and we both wore them on Saturday. I failed to get a photo, but Bells has one, and Mary-Helen has pics of us both in them. Apart from the Baroness Beret, a lot of work got done on the Marilinda socks.

There was knitting in the gorgeous sun.

There was much hilarity and many cocktails at the Hawaiian themed dinner.

Where missfee won the costume competition.

Many hangovers on Sunday, but all round a most awesome weekend. Twinkie apparently missed me muchly, David sent me a message saying so on Saturday, but it was proven by the way she raced out to meet me when I returned on Sunday (awww!)

More accounts can be found all over blogland, and more pics at my flickr, Bells flickr and blog, Mary-Helen's blog and Kris' blog.

Can't wait until next year!

Hopefully, next year I won't be breastfeeding any more, and I can come too! I really wished I was there this year, so glad you all had a wonderful time :)

A woman could not ask for more than the love of a good bunny!!! (Or a slightly wicked one!!) I saw the two Autumn Roses on another blog, and the beret looks very nice indeed!!

Oh, man, knitting camp looks like FUN! Eventually, when the allergy shots kick in and I don't have to worry about Fiber Hives any more, I'm totally finding one to attend here in the States!

Camp was so much fun. I am astounded you managed to get photos of the dinner and the dress up prize winner. Saturday night was hectic and a little messy.
