Life LDC Goes to Camp - Knit Camp!
The Needle Emporium has been hosting knit camp now for many years.
Usually Hubby and I are in the UK, just going to the UK, or just getting back from the UK, so camp hasn't really come up on my radar...until this year when I decided "I wanted to go to Camp".
Remember Mrs. Tishell? (My intrepid knit Buddy - we travelled to the UK in February?) Well, I asked her, and yup, she was good for a weekend of Knit Camp!
Then a friend of mine from the UK thought perhaps she'd like to join in. Come all the way from the UK for Knit Camp? Why not! I have done similar things. (Remember my weekend trip to London to go to a workshop with Alice Starmore at the I Knit London yarn fest......? ) We knitters will travel far and wide for a great knit event!
|Well, here we are, the intrepid threesome. (Someone's four legged friend is pleading to come too.)|
The car was full, we had our directions, and off we went!
|On the way to camp, we did a little detour to Gravenhurst and took a luncheon cruise |
on the RMS Segwun.....
|Mrs. Tishell did a Kinnear here and took our photo as we were settling in for lunch!|
Both of us have on hand knit scarves! Mine is Colour Affection,
Ros is wearing Different Lines - both are by
|Then it was a fun drive South from Gravenhurst|
to the Bayview Wildwood Resort on Sparrow Lake!
|The 3 instructors, Fiona Ellis, Beth Casey of Lorna's Laces and|
Josh Bennett all had "teams" on the first night!
All three of us were on team "Josh" - that's Josh Bennett!
|What a way to end a perfect weekend! |

during Sunday luncheon - right before everyone headed for home!)
