I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Men Fall Knitting Retreat 2013

MFKR 2013 Boys  having fun (1)
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. MFKR 2013 Spin Class (14)
 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! MFKR 2013 Spin Class (8)
