As you can see from yesterday's photo, and this picture of Alta's aspens, we had a weekend of glorious views. Little time was spent behind the camera lens, which is sad for the blog, but good for me. The weekend was full of friends, knitting, eating and drinking (not necessarily in that order). It was a blast.
The Rocky Mountain Knitters Retreat is in it's 8th year, and while I've longed to attend, this is my first year of retreating with the knitters. Lisa, standing and wearing a beautiful Fair Isle sweater, is the person with the vision of bringing together knitters at the spectacular Alta Lodge. Our view from the patio was Mt. Baldy, golden aspens, other knitters and umbrellas that offered shade. We spent the day knitting, looking with awe at the glorious view, and dodging the sun (or taking walk/hike if so inclined).
Cheryl was intent on her origami knitting, while Suzy snapped a photo and I snapped one of her. My main project was another (my third) pair of Ruth's Leafy Mitts, this one for Suzy, because I not only wanted to be a thoughtful roomy, I wanted easy weekend knitting. One mitt was finished by the time we left.
The weekend was fabulous, so much so, Suzy and I have already signed up for next year.
