Knitting Retreat

Speaking of inpulsive behavior, last March my friend and I impulsively signed up for the Olema Knitting Retreat.  We had no clue who was teaching or even where exactly Olema was, but someone recommended it and we signed up.  Well here it is November and we're off to the retreat.  Beth Brown-Reinsel is teaching the 2 day workshop and we're staying and eating at The Olema Inn.  I've heard both are fabulous.   I'll see you all when I get back!

My son's Sunday school class last week was talking about jealousy. He said, "It's like your friend owns all the stores in the world, and you only own one, and it's a knitting store."

My definition of jealousy -- It's like a blogger you read about is going to someplace you've never heard of -- Olema -- but after looking at the web page -- YOU WANT TO GO!

Just kidding -- have a wonderful time. Then come back and tell us all about it.

Oops. I intended to post this little reminder last week. I hope it reaches you before Thanksiving.
I noticed on my calendar that the U.S. celebration of this important feast is approaching. (Canada celebrated in October.)
Reminder: Call nona-sister and discuss wardrobe for Thanksgiving. We don't want a repeat of last year, do we?

It looks wonderful! Please give lots of details --I had half considered combining my Thanksgiving trip to visit my daughter (in Petaluma) with this retreat -- maybe next year.
Happy Thanksgiving...

I hope you had a great time at the knitting retreat!

And I just had to tell you that I finally freakin' finished my Nothin' but a T-shirt (remember the knit-a-long that you hosted ages and ages ago?). :-)

I'm planning a trip to Italy summer 2006 and want to buy Italian yarn wholesale, straight from the factory. I've done searches on the internet, but I'm not getting specific information. Any suggestions?
