  1. Looks so fabulous…did you teach each other or just knit together for fun? Curious what kind of retreat you chose to do?

    1. This time the retreat was casual and unstructured except for a couple of day trips. Some spontaneous teaching occurred but mostly it was knitting together for fun.

    1. Thanks! The locale did all the work! I forgot to mention that we saw whales on two different days – from our living room. That was pretty awesome!
