I had been wanting to do this pattern for a long time, and what a perfect time of year.

Yarn:  Wandering Cat Yarns Slinky Fingering in Peacock
When I dyed the yarn, the first thing Boss Cat and I said was "Julie".  So I knit this for her, to thank her for all the wonderful things she does.

What happens at Knit Camp.............

stays at Knit Camp.  Apparently this is rule one.  I heard someone say that at dinner.
But I can share a few moments with you:
I took 2 classes with Jared Flood (aka:  Brooklyn Tweed)  What a gracious man. He taught us new techniques and gave us so much information I had no time to take many pictures.
I did sneak a shot of him sitting with one of our knitting ladies.
 My other class was with Elise Duvekot from Knit one Below.
 and here's a shot of all of us on the last evening.
It's really hard to come back to reality after such a great weekend.
You can see more pictures on Julie's blog. I would just like to say  what wonderful hostesses she and her sister Beth are. They make the whole weekend worth it.  Thanks Ladies.

Labour Day weekend....

We had a small update today, I'm sorry I didn't post about it earlier, it's been a very busy week-end.
We had a short visit with the girls yesterday, actually I did, while Grampa and Daddy went fishing.

I did get some knitting done, I'm on a dead line for Julie, and I'm more than half way there.  The KW Knitters fair is this Saturday, so I have a couple more days to finish.  Good thing it's garter stitch. I'll post all the details when it's done.
