I am sitting in my beautiful, quiet, little room, watching the puddle ducks dive below the rippling waters of the lagoon at the Inn at Port Ludlow. This is the second full day of Camp Knitty Haha and already it seems like I've been here for a week. Part of that is that Camp is chock full of activities, friends, and beautiful yarns. Part of it is that I'm a little bit homesick and missing my sweet Ellie, her big sisters, and Kevin, as well as the shop, Sandi, and my wonderful customers.
Travels to Seattle went off without a hitch and I was met at the airport by Mya, Marcy, and Celia. We drove to Acorn Street Yarns for a quick LYS fix, then ate a glorious dinner at Icon Grill, where we had the most decadent hot fugdge sundae I've ever seen. Given wireless speeds here, I'm posting a limited number of photos. There will be more in my Flickr stream when I get home.
Monday morning we took the ferry to Bainbridge Island and met a bunch of other campers at Churchmouse. I found an old Rowan magazine, some buttons, and a selection of delicious loose leaf teas.
Yesterday I tagged along with the Fiddler Crab tribe and dyed yarn with Tina. Above, she shows us all how it's done. I produced three beautiful skeins that I am terribly proud of.
Last night Marcy and I hung out with Carrie (aka IrishGirlieKnits), Terry (aka Cupcakefaerie), and their roommates, as well as Leslie (tapmouse2) and Celia (Nartian). We ate brownies, drank wine and chatted. I finished the neckband of The De-Vine Miss N, and wove in all the ends. Hurray for a FO at Camp!
More fun awaits this evening. I'm bringing my spinning wheel to fun and games tonight, and casting on a new sweater and a pair of socks, too. The best thing about Camp is that I actually have time to knit!
