Last fall I went to a wonderful retreat with Clara Parkes – The Knitter’s Review Retreat. I’d never been to one before, and felt a lot of trepidation about the entire thing – I am rather shy, and as my blog names states, not one to join a lot of groups. Well, no surprise to anyone who’d ever been to one of these, I had a WONDERFUL time, and was welcomed by everyone I met. I should write an entire post about the weekend, but for this one my mind is elsewhere. I took Amy Herzog’s workshop “Knit to Fit.” Since then her book has been publishied (and I did indeed purchase it), but the class is a wonderful experience.
