I was retreating in Sudbury last weekend and it was wonderful. The Sticks, String and Stewardship Retreat is held the first weekend in October when the leaves are changing and everyone needs a knitting break after getting September over with.
Lots of knitting, lots of chatting and lots of eating of cake. Last year we all did a Moebius class and one of us, and I'm not naming names but you know who you are, became obsessed. This year S. brought a bottomless bag where she kept pulling out moebius scarf after moebius scarf after moebius scarf, like rabbits out of a hat.
And then she made a cake. Not just any cake. This is a Moebius Dickey cake. Just say it over and over, moebius dickey, moebius dickey and you might get the same place that Sharon did which was the Moby Dick cake with whales and spume (is that right?) and a lop-sided cake on purpose to represent the moebius. It was delicious. Yum. Long live the convoluted mind.

See you all next year. It was a terrific weekend and I can't wait to see the cake next year.
