QueerJoe On Retreat!
Trying to set expectations for the upcoming week. Tomorrow we open registration for the NorthEast Fall Men’s Fiber Retreat and Monday I leave for the Spring Retreat. QueerJoe is on retreat.
QueerJoe On Retreat…Sort Of
As one of the coordinators of both the Fall and Spring retreats, I am never really on retreat. The pile of items to be jammed into my car on Monday morning is rather small by comparison to most years. But there’s still a lot to do.
For prior retreats, I have pledged to blog readers that I will continue to blog while I’m at Easton Mountain. And I really meant it when I wrote that. But I get so distracted by the incredibly wonderful venue and guys at the retreat, that i never really do blog while I’m there.
So, don’t expect much from me next week. I will try to post blog entries. But if I don’t, just know I am having a fantastic time in a heavenly place with extraordinary men.
Sometimes I am able to pre-write three blog entries. And then while I’m up at Easton Mountain, I can just add photos and post the pre-written entries. But with packing/organizing for the retreat next week and handling the registration for the retreat in September, I’m not making any promises.
Good news…I did finish the latest crochet thermal stitch beanie in fine-gauge silk.
This hat is obviously not a good one for me, but I still really like it. The thermal stitch beanie design is one that I usually look good in, but not this one. I will either give this one away or try selling it at my craft shows at the end of the year.
I also need to start some new project to have while I’m at the retreat. I rarely work on any yarn projects when I’m at the retreats. I much prefer to socialize. But I want one in case I have the opportunity.
