Wow what an awesome weekend, Knit August nights retreat, organised by Maree and James.
A weekend long knitting retreat, with classes, meal, tour round Design Spun Wool Mill, yarn market - ohh I spent lots!!! Even the weather was awesome. We stayed in the lovely Harbour view motel - highly recommended location in Ahuriri, right by the beach and boardwalk. There are some lovely cafes very close by: Boardwalk and Milk and Honey are to name a few that I can personally recommend.
It was a great weekend for learning new skills, making new friends and getting to know old ones even better. There are some lovely pics on Maree's website for you to view. I did buy some very yummy yarn....... More cotton from YarnZ, Morag's lovely Vintage Purls sock yarn, some Skeins wool possum merino too.
There is even a ravelry forum, so go and sign up ready for next year!
