So we're back. And while we have been back for a few days at this point... I have felt jet lagged and groggy and in no place to write anything coherent. Which is weird... because there is only a one hour time difference between home and Marshfield, WI. Who knew that knitting information overload and jet lag could have the same effects?
In any case, I thought that I would wrap up the week with some point form Knit Camp notes.
In short- Knit Camp? So good. Like... SO good. I can't say that I did much research into Knit Camp before setting sail. I just knew that I loved Meg Swanson. But man oh man, am I ever glad that we went.
We met wonderful people, ate some decent food, knit A LOT of stitches and learned even more about those stitches than we knew possible.
Knit Camp. You're great.
And readers? If you are considering going at some point in this lifetime- GET ON IT. Do whatever it is you have to do to get there, and then go.
So without further ado, in point form, I present to you a quick summary of what went down in Wisconsin.
As one might expect, we knit.

And then we knit some more.
