Weekending

It was a weekend full of friends and fiber!  I got to attend my first Spa Weekend up in Freeport Maine.  And for those of you wondering, we did not go to a "Spa".  From what I'm told this weekend started with two women who wanted to get a way and knit and relax.  It has since grown to epic proportions (two hotels worth of knitters actually - maybe more?).  My friend only lives about 20 minutes from Freeport so we used her place as home base.  

We did some shopping - of course.  Check out this bread at "When Pigs Fly".  There's over 30 to choose from.


Of course there were yarn stores to visit.  And a fiber market at the hotel.

I'll show you my purchases later this week. There was a fashion show on Saturday night that left me feeling very inspired.  Look at this shawl.  I think it was called Dragons Fire?  What a work of art. 

There were lots of door prizes.  Julie won a skein of yarn.  As a matter of fact, we had a few nice people just come over and gift us things.  I got a beautiful skein of yarn and a pretty pin.  Knitters - they are awesome. 

It was a pretty cool weekend.

Wow - what a weekend! All the fiber love and awesome knitters sound even better than going to a "Spa"!

A knitter's spa get away was just as lovely as I knew it would be. Yes, it must be repeated, you have the most awesome weekends!
