Back from the Peninsula

Sorry I missed y’all last weekend- I was headed out to Hansville, on the Kitsap peninsula for my annual knitting retreat!

The spot was amazing, and we were greeted with a welcome rainbow upon arrival 🙂

There was beach access from the yard

On the way down, I was able to stop in at the Artful Ewe in Port Gamble.

(I usually find that it’s a good sign when there is a spinning wheel out in front of a shop) 🙂

Beautiful luscious fibers.
I picked up some special Polwarth/Silk goodies to play with while I was at the retreat.

I focused on the teal, brown & purple and decided to save the fiery colors for later- here are my results

Had never worked with Polwath before. It was a really fun spin, very soft and springy-

I also got a fair bit of knitting done- maybe 5 inches on the shawl collared vest project

What a great way to spend a few days!

      Thanks Michelle- the colors are so fabulous, and the silk in the blend really adds a lot of luster. Was so fun to work with!
