Well, I got back from Seattle yesterday after spending the weekend at the Men's Fall Knitting Retreat.
I had such a great time. It was great being around other guys who knit. I'm actually a little sad that it had to end.
Besides the great social atmosphere, my knitting skills improved a bit. I think it was due to sitting around and knitting for hours on end.
I'm also very inspired now. Most of these guys have been knitting for years and do such amazing work. Seeing their stuff has pushed my buttons; making me want to churn out the same quality of work.
So, here I am starting a sweater that I've modified a bit. Let's see if my experiment will turn out well.
