Sadly all too quickly the last day of our retreat week had arrived. We were all wondering where the last 5 days had gone and there was already talk and anticipation about next year.

Last minute speedy knitting was done as everyone got themselves ready for show and tell after dinner.

Certificates and Medals where handed out to everyone who took part and for one last time everyone retreated to the cosy corner for some relaxing time with their yarn and needles…

…and all too soon it was time for me to wave good bye to everyone.

On another glorious morning in this beautiful corner of North Wales we hugged and hugged, some tears were shed and promises of returning next year made.

It has been a fabulous week of friendship and laughter, good food and drink, fabulous weather every day and KNITTING of course!

The next retreat will take place from 25th September to 2nd October 2019 at the Chainbridge Hotel in Llangollen (more information will follow).

Hope to see you there.

Good morning from Wales and another beautiful day in the Land of  Dragons!

Yesterday we had a day away from the Classroom. A glorious, colourful day that started with these guys crossing the road on my way to the venue…

We got on our bus and travelled along the Conwy Valley to Bodnant Gardens, a National Trust Property, nestled into the hills close to the coast.

The feast for our eyes was almost overwhelming, with an abundance of colour everywhere…

…all set against the big blue skies of Wales.

We soaked it all in and left feeling blessed and happy with a head full of new ideas.

More surprises for everyone today…see you tomorrow!

Day 2 started with joy of finished samples and eagerness to get started on the project of the week, a pair mittens designed by Claudia.

Soon everyone was busy again with needles clicking and after a very hush day yesterday, today the room was filled with chatter and laughter.

A big surprise was waiting for our lovely guests when they returned after lunch, as Emma from The little grey Sheep and Sian from Courtyard Books had arrived with lots of books and yarn.

After the initial squeals of joy had subsided, shopping began in earnest and arms full of yarn will be filling suitcases on return flights home no doubt.

Personal shopping attention was given and then Emma gave the group a fabulous talk on how the farm she and her  husband bought and started with just 7 sheep has grown into this business and gorgeous yarn that we know today.
