Another Boat

Two days ago I had this much done.
Yesterday I started another boat on the Bergen Bryggen (wharf).
Last weekend, Jen1 and I attended the Woodstock (WooLstock) Fleece Festival. It was well-attended and lots of fun. I didn't buy much but do like looking at all the pretty things. We then ventured another 15 min. down the highway to Ingersoll and stopped in at Stitch-It Central which is an excellent stitchery/knitting/quilt shop in downtown Ingersoll. We discovered this place last May on our way to the Lucy Neatby class in St. Thomas and wanted to make a return visit.

This weekend I'm off to Rhinebeck with three Rhinebeck virgins. It should be a fun time. We plan to attend the Indie Marketplace at the Best Western on Friday night and after the festival on Saturday start for home and stay near Albany that night for about half the price of staying near Rhinebeck. The weather is forecast to be sunny and warm (24C) so no Rhinebeck sweater for me!

The weekend after will be a stitching marathon at the semi-annual stitching retreat sponsored by my embroidery guild the Trillium Embroidery Guild based in Whitby ON.  Basically we arrive at the lodge up north on Friday and stitch and gab until Sunday after lunch. Jen1 and Barb are driving up with me. It should be a good time.

Then the following weekend the three of us are off to the Needler's Retreat at Glen House Resort on the Ivy Lea Parkway near Gananoque. There, we'll get to meet up with about 57 other knitters, including Jen 2 and we'll take part in three knitting workshops, a 'fashion show'. and share our favourite knitting books. All in a relaxing resort on the north shore of Lake Ontario.

This is the 'most wonderful time of the year' for knitters/ stitchers.
