More about Camp

Betty Dong sent some more camp pics, so I thought I would post them.

Silly me, I didn’t realize all the Maggie Sefton connections until someone explained them to me. I just read A Deadly Stitch and wow! Fort Conner (in the book) is clearly Fort Collins, Co. The yarnshop House of Lambspun is the shop I posted about on the 12th; see the pic of Lambspun there.

The restaurant is attached (Betty H, Eileen, myself and our fearless leader Gay enjoyed lunch there) and the golf course is just across the way. Only Helen’s cottage is missing. I know Rachel will have a fit about this because she likes her books so much.

This is Mary Ellen who is our mentor. She is holding one of her sweaters designed by DD Paula, our resident color specialist. She demonstrated cutting a steek for those who had not seen such. Mary Ellen is selling her patterns now; I saw them at My Sister Knits. She graciously sent me two and I can’t wait to knit them.

You expect yarns shops to have cats, but My Sister Knits has chickens. The shop is behind the owner’s home and both front and back yards are full of birdhouses, including felted ones. I’ve just put up some feeders in my yarn, but I want to make the felted birdhouses. I believe it is a Fibertrends pattern.

Lots of folks went out to eat, but not all of them behaved. Eileen and Peggy needed stern words.

Candace was a superb teacher and promised to return next year with new tricks for us. She is also a lot of fun. She is modeling Alice’s gloves which were featured in Knitters magazine a few years ago.

Tomorrow is the big Stash Sale at Charlotte Yarn. Hope I make some money---to spend on more yarn.

Thank you for posting the pictures. It is easy to see that a good knitting time was had by all.

Hope to see there next year.
