Yeah, Yeah, I Know!

I know it's been ages since I have blogged. But, I have a good excuse. See who is looking at my Kauni sweater (okay - yes that is me with big hair, I was in Wisconsin you know where there is HUMIDITY)? Yes, that is Meg Swansen. Holding my knitting. Yep. Cool, huh? I think so. I was asking her some questions about the hem I had put in, because she recommends 10% less stitches for hems and I wanted her opinion if she thought I should rip mine out (she said no, I had a nice loose cast on, asked me how I had done it).

You see, I was at Knitting Camp with Robin, Leanne, and Pam. We had a great time. Now, I will not bore you with the travel NIGHTMARES that I had getting there and getting home, and the details of my solo 225 mile drive from Milwaukee to Knitting Camp while Robin and Leanne got to fly there (flight screw ups). But I will tell you that we had a great time. Meg of course is fantastic. Joyce Williams is awesome. Amy Deitjen is a hoot and the reigning Queen of Purple (someone will have to ask about a purple starter kit comment), and Spotted Cow is the beer to drink when in Wisconsin! The girls across the table can knit with us any time.

A good time was had by All!

I seriously want to hear all about Knitting camp - I am completely obsessed with going next year. I'm so jealous! Meg Swanson touched your sweater? Sigh.

Glad you had a good time. I hope you'll write more about your adventure!
