Back From the Mountain

I got home from the Knitters Review Retreat earlier this afternoon. Tired! We were having too much fun to actually sleep, so I’m going to need to do some catching up tonight.

I think the foliage was at its most beautiful this weekend. Here’s the view from the front porch outside our room:


It’s hard not to be happy when you are sitting in a rocking chair in the fresh air, knitting, while looking at that, huh?

Here’s an early morning shot of the lodge, shrouded in a mysterious mist.


And just for Sandy, a shot of the sky.


I’ll post progress pix of Mermaid and other assorted fiber-related photos tomorrow. I have to go spend some quality time with Lucy, who had a lot of fun with her daddy this weekend, but nevertheless was very happy to see me.



  1. What a beautiful place to sit and knit! The trees look like they are on fire with light and color.

  2. A sight light that is breathtakingly beautiful. I’m happy you had a good time. ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t wait to read all about it.

  3. Beautiful! Luckily you missed the storm moving through. WIll be looking for detailed analysis and progress!

  4. Beautiful pictures! I was starting to wonder, you didn’t mention taking too much time off this summer. The retreat must have been wonderful!

    The mousie came on Friday but my “fill in” mailperson wasn’t up to walking the five flights of steps!(can’t say I blame him) Monday my strapping young mailman returns and the mousie shall be delivered to the P-Man!! YAY!

    Pumpkin say to tell Lucy “you know what they say about the size of a cats tail….?” ๐Ÿ˜‰
