KnitAway 2010

As promised...our girls weekend away knitting - in (mostly) picutres...

(Morgan and Millie - in their designated spots - we didn't move much all weekend - just knit, knit, knit, eat, knit, sip wine, knit, knit, eat, knit, eat... you get the idea)


As soon as we get together - the first thing we normally do is show off to each other the things we have knit since the last time we met - these two GORGEOUS blue shawls are examples

and Lindsey's clapotis isn't new - but its still priceless and I thought looked perfect draped over the hunting cabin chair...


In addition to knitting (and this year playing in the snow! - which is CRAZY in SC) there is usually spinning...

 (Morgan spinning)


Lindsey also finished some yarn 

isn't it gorgeous?!?  She wants to make a 28Thirty out of it when she gets enough yarn spun
(link is to a pic of my 28Thirty)

We did venture outside for a bit on our knitting weekend - namely to play in the snow...


and to go shopping (for more yarn of course!)

(oops!  does that look like fabric?!  come back tomorrow and see!)
And no knitting weekend is complete without at least one picture of everyone's handknit socks...


and of course a bear skin...

right?!?!  (sorry - I had to include it - having a knit-away at a hunting cabin is an adventure!  This place had NEVER seen so much estrogen! lol!)

Finally - a parting shot...

(we were trying to get our 'sock' shot and I just love how the camera focused on the handspun yarn and not the socks - love!  although not the winning 'sock shot' per se)

I had a great time girls - and it got me knitting again (proof to come soon!)  Let's plan another one soon!


  1. Awesome pictures! I LOVE them. What a great time. Can't wait to do it again!!

  2. Thanks for sharing the pics! They are awesome! I had such a BLAST!!! I can't wait to have our next crafty weekend!!!!
