MNKD 2015

This past weekend was the annual Minnesota Knitters' Days at Frontenac. 

I got a photo-op with the Pope (nice of him to visit us):

The grounds at Villa Maria are lovely:

I got to walk the labyrinth.

Lots to think about this year.

The colors were past peak but still very nice.

It is a little intimidating to be around so many knitters with super-skills.

I took a few pics of people's backs.

There may be a pattern available for this one in a year or two.

This one was a gift during our Friday evening activity:

I still love cables.

There was a lot of color work too.

Knowing color work was a prerequisite for this year's class.  I faked it.

I got further along on the project this year than I ever have before though, in spite of the fact it was two color knitting - a Norwegian slipper (so far so good).

I also started a scarf using alpaca from a local farm.

My Friday night gift was ShiBui yarn.

And I was also gifted a set of salt and peppers to add to my collection :D

Finally, this was our Betsy gift this year.  She made everyone a little sweater ornament.

It was a great weekend.

Burning question, does he pick or throw?
