This is a RETREAT info-mercial.

It's Retreat time. We're gearing up for our Cabin Fever Retreat on November 15-17 at the Fern Resort.
This year we're going to focus on getting a GREAT FIT for your sweaters. And you know what that means right? The measuring tape has to come out. I know that none of us like to look at what the measuring tape tells us but it really does get you the fit you want. Everyone is going to do a sweater map with body measurements and the adjustments needed for their figure. Then we're going to do a small project (it's a secret so far) where you'll work with these adjustments. It sounds a little bit dry but it's going to be lots of fun. How could it not be when knitters are knitting and eating great food! Lyn is also going to do a dyeing workshop. If you haven't tried hand dyeing yet this will be your chance to make your own unique skeins.

We have a couple more retreats going in the spring. Lyn and I are part of a group that put on it's first annual event last year. Here's a terrific video from our Yarn Over Sleep Over Retreat held last April. We'll be holding another Yarn Over Sleep Over Retreat again in April 11-13, 2014.

We also have a Northern Ontario Knitting at Lake Lauzon event where I teach for 2 days in Algoma Mills, ON (on Hwy 17 at the top of Lake Huron). This year on April 26 & 27 we'll be knitting socks in all their guises. That will be a fun couple of days. 
If you live locally you can travel in each day or make arrangements to stay in the Lake Lauzon B&B rooms.
It's getting busy around here but these are really fun events and I'm looking forward to them all.
p.s. Sorry Robebe, I know you can't make it and all this doesn't help at all!
