And The Knitter Boys go WILD!
This past weekend on Saturday, we opened up registration for the 9th annual Men’s Spring Knitting Retreat and the unthinkable happened.
Yes, we sold out the entire retreat in one day.
There is usually a big rush of registrations on the first day it opens, but selling out 41 spots in matter of hours was unbelievable…until this past weekend.
The nice part is that the retreat has become so popular, and we no longer have to worry about making sure we reach minimum registration requirements.
It’s also great that there is an alternative option for guys in the Northeast at the first ever Men’s Knitting Retreat North in Guelph Ontario in April of this year, which is being coordinated by some pretty amazing guys and is in a beautiful area of Canada (plus the Canadian Dollar is a great deal for Americans at the moment).
Working exclusively on the current niece blanket project, I have just about doubled the length of it in the last two days.
Here’s also a photo of what the back of the fabric looks like.
Even with a US17 (12 mm) needle, the fabric is still a little bit tighter than I’d prefer, but it’s still very soft and will be very warm.
I also realized I never showed photos of the completed previous niece blanket (which seemed to please the niece who received it very much).
