To begin with it is the 6th Fall Retreat and it is the best Vacation a knitter can have. Men of all walks of life and as diverse as yarn. This table was all the items that we will be bidding on the Silent Auction. This auction benefits the Scholarship Fund. It is tax deductible, we are a 501c now. There were a lot of new faces and some new ones as well. This year we were able to sponsor 3 guys with scholarships.
The first night we had a spinning class with Michael Wade and some assistants. If you don't know how to spin, he will teach you and teach you . I want to take the class again and again, because Michael makes this class a lot of fun. You become full of wonder and your yarn experience will change your perspective about fiber. Tomorrow there will be more classes and more pictures about what we did, or better yet, what I did during the days at the retreat.
Even our friend Jeremy got to take the class. This young fellow, that is legally blind and hardly hears, is in a wheelechair, and is an amazing human being. Is like our little brother that we protect. Tomorrow is another day. The boys spent the night spinning and spinning until late, helping each other and just having fun. Thanks for stopping by and yep That is Nigel!
