YES, I KNIT SWEATERS TOO...

Up At The Mountain

Posting this weekend from The Mountain in Highlands, NC! The AKG yearly knitting retreat. And that's all I can say because....What happens at the mountain, stays at the mountain!

Got Claudia to take some pictures for me. Here is a sweater that I knitted last year for LYS Why Knot Knit.

This is the WARMEST sweater. Can't wear it much down south. Made it from Debbie Bliss Alpaca/Silk blend. It has a really nice drape to it and is a nice eye catcher too!

Here is another hat I made up here yesterday. The guys went shopping and brought me back some cool German worsted weight yarn "Big Mexico". Just enough for a hat, so all projects were immediately put on hold of course and I knitted this up:

It knit up really fast and was a super fun yarn to work with. Also superwash...woo hoo.

That's all for now...must get back to the friends at the mountain...one more day of good times left!

KNIT ON...

Great sweater! I can't even imagine how soft and awesome it is.

By the way, I'm LotusBlossoms on Ravelry, the one who drooled all over her keyboard because of your argyle scarf. I'm nosey, as you can tell.

Thanks for the leftover yarn on my car antenna. That was sweet!!! Noticed it when I came home last night - hope you guys had fun after we left.

The sweater looks great on you, in the photos AND in person! That yarn is SUPER soft, and VERY warm! Had a great time at the mountain with y'all. I'm already counting the days until the next retreat!

The sweater is great and looks really comfortable. Enjoy it!

Can you tell us about The Mountain? What sort of retreat is it?

I'm interested in expanding my horizons. Any information will be appreciated. Thanks!
