One month later

December 8, 2011

Did you know I went on a non-knitting knitting retreat a month ago? No I didn’t think so; because I never posted about it.

Now when I say it was a non-knitting knitting retreat, I mean specifically for me. There were 60 or so perfectly organized, non-procrastinators who managed to sign up for the knitting class portion of the trip and attended the official program. I just wasn’t one of them.

Every year a contingent of knitwits head to Gananoque on the first weekend in November to attend the Sheeps Ahoy Needler’s Retreat. Not only could I not miss the fun, I would also take a month to blog about it.

I’m sure this year’s program was brimming with wonderful sessions, given by awesome ladies, imparting their considerable knowledge. I’m sure that if I hadn’t been a slacker and had been able to get my registration off to Deb in time I’d have attended more than just the vendors market and meals. Sadly, I am a considerable slacker, one who got her act together just in time to get her name on the waiting list…in the 13th position. Now considering there are a total of 60 places at this retreat, I was fairly well assured that short of illegal activities on my part I would not be part of the program.

And you know what? I was all good with that. Yep, I was all good with three days of hanging around, taking pictures, NOT rushing off to class, but chatting with friends and wool fondling. Saturday I hung with another slacker (place #14 on the waiting list *fistbump*) and Sunday I spent some time lying in the flower gardens playing with my camera. I also managed to cram in a camera session at sunrise and another at sunset. I did miss a gorgeous frosty Saturday morning, opting instead for the breakfast buffet. Mea culpa. You know what else I was all good with? Sleeping in.

So without further ado here are the results of my non-knitting knitting weekend:

I love this house and would have gone closer but I was afraid there was someone with a shotgun in there.

I made my friend Snorie stop all over the highway so I could snag some pics.

Saturday night we were without wireless for about five hours. Now I know why it was so hard to troubleshoot.

Sunrise (yes I did manage to catch one)

    Procrastination has paid off! 🙂

    You may have been right to fear the house. It looks a little like the one where bad things happened in Fried Green Tomatoes
