Documenting Ten Years of Awesome


This past Men’s Spring Knitting Retreat was the 10th retreat, so put together a video montage of all my photos from the first nine years to present to the guys this year.

Assured Success

We’ve never been quite sure why, although we have lots of thoughts on the matter, but the Men’s Spring Knitting Retreats always have an immense impact on the men attending, usually in ways that are different than what they might have expected.

Photos don’t do the experience justice, but I’ll present them as the only way of hinting at how amazing our time together was this year.

Readers’ Comments/Questions

Maureen comments, “The photos are lovely, but I’m really dying to hear all about the special blanket you made – did you give it to the owners of the Retreat house? – or was it raffled? – and was it well-received? I loved that blanket!”

Thanks Maureen…the blanket was donated to the retreat center as part of their 17th year anniversary auction which took place this past weekend, but I haven’t yet heard how it did.  I’ll let you know as soon as I know.
