Knitting Pipeline Retreat 2015-Day 2

Day 2

I decided to wear my Mara Shawl it was my fist knitted shawl.  I was afraid to do the edging so I just stopped, lol.


We began with Breakfast.  Although provided at the retreat since we were at the B and B we ate their.  Sooo nice.  My coworkers friend she grew up there was our server here name was Amy. Look at this killer hot chocloate.  It was Ginormous!


After breakfast James dropped me off back at the church.  Just in time for the needle felting class..woot woot.  We made a flower…its reminded of my hair…LOL!



I sewed on the backing and pinned it to my shawl.


let me say ….needle felting can be therapeutic…stab stab away. BE CAREFUL the needle has barbs but I had fun making it and got several compliments.

Shortly after door prizes began.  I didn’t win any but it was nice to see all the vendors as they gave door prizes away.

Lunch time!  Today was Pi Day=3.1415.  Everyone had fun with that one. Since were still stuffed we decided to hit the square.


Oh this is a great quilt shop!  I restrained myself as I knew my fundage was for yarn goodness but I did a few things.  James picked out a pattern he wanted me to make too!


A zipper, 6 inch ruler, the sew together bag by Sew Together Bag by Sew Demented.


How cute is the little bib that was hanging!


We also strolled through a shop called Step Back in Time, YOU MUST VISIT.  Love the creaking floors and vintage items.  I could have stayed in here ALL DAY.  We will be back but I did pick up a few things….


That iron is so heavy death is immanent it if falls on you.  A vintage cast iron cornbread skillet, maple darning egg:) and a bunch of vintage threads and stuff.1-IMG_91441-IMG_9145

Iron on Corduroy patches, LOL.  I heart vintage goodie bags.


To add history to our trip Abe Lincoln walked here.


This candy store is evil. vintage candy….boston baked beans!!!!!…that’s all I have to say.1-IMG_1526

After we had some fun in the square and lunch we headed back.  There were some ladies sitting on the steps drop spindling using Turkish spindles.  Daizeknits encouraged me to try it……yes I ordered one from Turtlemade.   It seemed so much nicer than my bottom whorl spindles and the ladies were having so much fun.

After my spindle incident I had a chance to go over and take a close look at the shawl candy on display.1-IMG_1512 1-IMG_1514 1-IMG_1515
