Nancy fights the local apricot thieves!

The Knit Surfers have a wonderful weekend away with their local knitting friends. They joke about how much stuff they brought for two days. All the knitting, food and fun stuff. Spinning wheels were also brought out for the weekend. Kelie showed Nancy her Craftsy.com class from Jacey Boggs.

Kelie worked on her Alla sweater and was so close to finishing. Nancy worked on her Corinne cardigan and finished a square for the Great American Aran Afghan Knitalong.

Dinner on Saturday night consisted of an elaborate Taco Bar followed by a homemade Lemon pie. The next night everyone had a big salad bar with baked potatoes.

Games for the weekend included:

Knitting Challenge! - Knit with sunglasses/obstructed vision with Size 50 needles, Knit with something from the kitchen, Knit Backwards, Knit with a friend (one hand from each person), Knit behind your back

Musical Knitting - With Size 50 needles and a bulky yarn, each person knit a stitch and pass it to the next person. Set a timer and when it goes off, the person holding the knitting is out.

Guess who I am - write a knitting term on a piece of paper and tie it around your head, ask questions to guess what you are.

Office Supply Project Runway - design a dress with provided materials

A good attitude and good times made for a lot of fun for all!
