Knitting Retreat in Friday Harbor!

Originally uploaded by knitterati
Those of you who know where I am know who this is----noted knitting designer, author and teacher demonstrates a new heel technique! Really!

I started Saturday in Seattle, took the ferry to Bainbridge Island. I visited this store--Churchmouse Yarns and Teas. It is the ONLY store you EVER need to visit--seriously, I have been in a lot of yarn stores and this one is the best, for selection, assistance, friendliness, everything! Churchmouse is awesome!

More later!

Cat's Gift Kitting Retreat

I am waiting at the Burbank airport for my flight. I leave at 2 for San Francisco, change planes then on to Seattle. I spend the night there, and Saturday it's over to Bainbridge Island to visit Churchmouse Yarns and Tea. Just possibly the best yarn shop in the world! That afternoon I crawl up the coast from Seattle, visiting Great Yarns in Everett and Wildfibers in Mt. Vernon. Sunday morning, it's the ferry from Anacortes over to Friday Harbor on San Juan Island for a week of gift knitting with Cat Bordhi. I know that I still haven't finished by cruise postings, but I will later. I will try to be diligent at blogging as it happens on this trip. The retreat is Monday through Friday. I return to Seattle Friday and flly back to Burbank Saturday. Come join me on this adventure!
