Heritage Knitting in Progress

Sorry I don't have any photos yet.  I have the camera and I have the laptop but I forgot to bring the little cable that connects the two.  Details, details....

We're getting ready for our last sessions in our Heritage Knitting Retreat and it's been more fun than I could have imagined.  We have had 4 wonderful ladies participating and it's been a hoot.  We've learned how to read the world's worst written pattern and actually gotten a cute project out of it, we've learned a new knitting language, we've laughed, we've learned new stitch patterns, we've laughed, we've eaten, we've had fun with digging through the 19th century pattern books, we've learned about modern yarn equivalents to yarn selections like andalusian wool and berlin fleecy, we've eaten, we've laughed.  A good time was had by all, in other words.

Wish you could have been here.  We're going to rework the workbook a little bit and it will be available a little later if you're interested.  The hard copy workbook with companion cd is going to be $15 and $10 for the cd only.  The cd contains an electronic version of the workbook and a collection of digital copies of 19th century pattern books.  Shipping will be added to either type.

It's been 2 years worth of research and planning for Jane and myself and it feels wonderful to have this tangible outcome here at the end with both the workbook and the time we've had together this weekend.  It feels maaavalous, Darling!
