In September I attended the Make Wear Love Retreat in Maine. I had a fantastic time, and learned so many new techniques and tips to be a better sweater knitter. I came home from the retreat with inspiration to spare and a desire to swatch every yarn I could get my hands on!
We visited the Armstrong Redwoods which was amazing.
Pacific Coast Highway although we only saw a fraction of it.
Golden Gate Bridge. We definitely need to go back sometime and spend a few days!
Georges in La Jolla. It was a great meal with wonderful company and a beautiful view.
Cushing Isle which will be next on the needles.
Acorn Trail is the first sweater I cast on after the retreat. I have the back, a sleeve, and half of the right front done so far.
Bird in Hand mittens in class. The pictures do NOT do this pattern justice! These mittens just may be the most beautiful thing I've ever knit!
I've also finished a sweater and a shawl since I last blogged, and those do deserve a proper blog post. I plan to share those 2 projects soon, so be sure to check back!
