qotd, my favorite Stephenson
many things make a post

and everyone stayed fully clothed

As I do each year around this time, I spent the weekend with knitters. As is also traditional, I suffered camnesia. 

I did manage to take a few pictures of Anne Hanson's blocking workshop, tho.

Note that knitters will use any water holding vessel when the situation is dire.

Like I said, knitters are resourceful.

A fine weekend, all the way around. Oh - and I might have spent some time doing something other than knitting at the knitting retreat....

Now I just have to figure out how to ply. And how all of this spinnable fiber wound up on my printer.
