Monhegan Island Retreat 2011

Friend Carole arrived at my house on Thurs. 9/8 and we left the next morning for a "sleep-0ver" at my cousin Jean's home on the Maine coast. Left Sat. AM for the island with about 20 more knitters and had a most delightful late summer week-end of knitting and talking into the nights. Everyone had a project to work on - mine was "Portland" from "A Fine Fleece". Made good progress despite all the errors in the pattern and tinking because I was talking instead of
paying attention. The yarn used is Plymouth Galway .
Also managed to finish the September sock from the knit.sock.love KAL on Ravelry. This is "Ins and Outs" by Cookie A, from her book knit.sock.love. This was the ninth month of the KAL and so far I have loved every sock. I used Springtree Road Julep Sock, color Citron.

We had the most wonderful weather all week-end, warm and sunny in the 80's. Great time was had by all. Reservations for next year are already made!
