2018 MSKR Day 1
The 11th annual Men’s Spring Knitting Retreat will begin officially this coming Thursday, May 17th.
Later today, the car will be packed and I will kiss Thaddeus and Finn goodbye and head up to Greenwich, NY for a few days to relax and prepare for the retreat. I love the three pre-retreat days (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) as they give me a chance to relax, eat well and hang out with some of the other guys who arrive a day or two or three early.
I’m hopeful to be able to post photos and small blog posts every day this week so that folks that can’t be there can at least have a taste of the exciting week.
Most of the guys who have ever attended any of the Men’s Knitting Retreat know that I don’t knit at retreats (or at least very rarely knit), and so I won’t have any knitting progress on the blog this week.
But since this past weekend I did make some negative progress…
I ended up ripping out the entire sleeve this time and re-started it alternating two colorways of yarn.
Not sure I’m going to be pleased with this either, but I have plenty of time to ponder it this week.
Be good while I’m away.
