Rounding the Bend

soar snow

It's hard to believe that our week here is closing in on the end, it always goes so quickly.

The workshops are done, the market has opened, the retreat participants have arrived and some workshop participants are gone. The whirlwind that is the retreat begins today.

There has been all sorts of weather from bright sunny crisp days to fog, rain, and brief snowfalls. The weather makes it all truly seem like an Autumn retreat, and we've been able to pull out the mittens, hats, scarves, and sweaters knitted and woven in beautiful handspun yarns.

Each crisp morning starts with a fire and a cup of tea, and each evening ends with long conversations over a glass of wine or a brew. Thus braced against the cold, surrounded by friends, knitting away into the evening....who could ask for more?
