I attended the  The Knitting Pipeline Retreat this weekend.  What a blast!!!  This was my second year at the treat and I will totally try and go back next year as it first come first available.  The treat is very relaxing a laid back.  It’s held at the Crossroads Methodist Church of which Paula is a member of the church.  It’s very beautiful inside and the volunteers truly have a servants heart.   Here a few quilts that were hanging up.

I didn’t take any classes this year as I was a bit nervous since this was my first vending event. I sat with a wonderful group of ladies from the North Suburbs, we laughed and laughed.  I am definitely going to check out their guild they’ve had some key players there for sure.

I won a door prize..yay!  Sadly I had to give it away…it was mohair with my eye issues too many loose fibers but it went to a good home.

I worked on by Burberry socks since it was basic stockinette and didn’t require concentration.

I was sewing my fingers off for the retreat but I did a get a few sneak peaks at some of the beautiful yarns.

I also took my sidekick as something as really wrong.  For the life of me the treadling was super stiff.  So what would anyone else do….bring it to the hive mind!  So Julie(happy go lucky yarns, Sarah(Yarn Geek Fibers) and Jennifer( DaizieKnits) got down to business.  Jennifer and I isolated the issue the drive band…thenn BAM..I thought hmm what if I put the drive band on backward..HA that was it yay!
