What I Love about Knitting Camp

I was fortunate to attend another session of Schoolhouse Press's Knitting Camp this past weekend. This was my fifth camp in seven or eight years and may have been my most favorite one thus far.

Here are a few of the reasons why I love Camp:

~Seeing old friends and making new ones

~Seeing the breadth of amazing work people are doing humbly and simply at home, publicly acknowledged and celebrated

~Meg's amazing warmth and ability to inspire confidence in all

~Amy Detjen's amazing technical skills and unfailing humor (here, acting as Joyce's twin)

~the incomparable and beautiful Joyce Williams

~The easy (yet deadly) access to yarn:

~Hands-on access to garments knit by EZ and Meg:

Thanks, all, for a wonderful weekend. Tomorrow, camp loot.

I absolutely agree with all of your favorite camp things. It really was a wonderful year at camp this year.

Only thing missing from your list .... Deep Fried Pickles with Stone Ground Mustard Sauce.

Enjoyed seeing you again. Looking forward to knitting the Baby Brioche and seeing what other clever things you design this year.

agree (100) to everything.

I was so happy to finally be able to go to camp, and it lived up to expectations and more.
