Queer is to Joe as Wonder is to Mike
WonderMike did another amazing job with this year’s West Coast Men’s Retreat. It was a fantastic time and the guys, both repeaters and newbies were inspirational.
Another Awesome Retreat
Ably assisted by Daniel, WonderMike organized a Thursday afternoon to Sunday morning retreat this past weekend in the Seattle area (Dumas Bay retreat center in Federal Way, Washington to be specific).
Great guys, great location, great workshops, great swag, but most of all, great community.
I’m tired as hell (because I’d stay up late and get up early so I didn’t miss a thing!), but it was well worth it.
Below are some random pictures from the retreat…I took far few photographs than I usually do…I just kept getting caught up in the excitement of it all.
If anyone’s interested in the next soonest retreat, registration is open for a short time only for the upcoming Midwest Men’s Knitting Retreat on Thursday, November 4th – Sunday, November 7th.
For anyone who has attended a men’s knitting retreat with me in the past, you know that I hardly do any knitting while I’m there. I mostly just enjoy the camaraderie and joy of being with other like-minded guys.
This year, I knit a sum total of 3 inches of sock cuff in 1×1 ribbing, using the hand-spun yarn from Carol (Black Bunny Fiber) and the charcoal alpaca.
Hopefully, you’ll be distracted by the guy-photos and ignore the lack of knitting content.
Men’s Fall Knitting Retreat 2010 – Photos
Can’t believe I didn’t get photos of some of the guys, like Kiwi James…every time I sat with him, I was too busy gabbing to think about photography. And Joe E. wouldn’t let me photograph him…it was great being with him, even though he wasn’t feeling well.
Can’t wait till next year.
