Back from the weekend. Lots of giggles, knitting and crochet, eating and drinking. Of course, no knitting retreat weekend would be complete without watching Gone With The Wind and Casino Royale. Even tho’ we didn’t realise that GWTW was a doublesided DVD and watched part two first, doh! Stayed in an apartment overlooking the ocean. Not that we ventured outside or even used the spa in the apartment. We were knitters on a mission.

I started and almost finished the stitch diva shawl and then frogged it. It wasn’t wide enough. I’m not particularly worried as it didn’t take too long to do once I go the hang of the tunisian crochet. A picture below of my early progress, about 5 hours later I frogged it. The colours are lovely and I think it’ll come up nice, once I get the tension right.

We also did face masks, as you can see below. Emma finished a very cute hooded jumper for her unborn and modeled it for us (buggar that the shot’s out of focus, I was laughing too hard).
