The sun was beaming down on us when we arrived at the Chainbridge Hotel in Llangollen, our home for the week. Returning knitters and new quickly settled down with some refreshing cups of tea and delicious home baked scones.
Everyone gathered in the workshop room where Claudia and I had laid out samples, books, other bits and bobs and of course yarn, and the 2016 Retreat Project was finally revealed.
Claudia and I had prepared a couple of talks on the weeks subject – Structure & Texture – and soon everyone was busy getting out their gathered inspiration, working on ideas.
What fun to watch the hustle and bustle of helping each other, discussing and drawing, working out different ways to approach the subject. Sample knitting soon started as we all settled in our own private garden space the hotel had made available for us.
A wonderful start to what looks like another fabulous week in Wales.
It’s late, so I say Nosta until tomorrow.
