2015 Men’s Spring Knitting Retreat – The Setting

One of the general principals of the regional Men’s Knitting Retreats is that they take place in a beautiful/inspirational setting.

Easton Mountain

The venue for the Men’s Spring Knitting Retreat has always been Easton Mountain Retreat Center in Greenwich, NY, and it certainly complies with the beauty/inspiration requirement.  Here are photos of retreat center and of some of the volunteers/residents/staff.

Current Knitting

While I don’t get much knitting done while I’m at the retreat, I have made a bit more progress on my niece’s blanket…need to finish it by the end of the month.
