Lace with a View

"Bliss" best explains it, "knitting bliss" even better for a description of our Lace workshop and retreat. The weather could not have been more ideal, the setting placid and green and the workshop - delightful. We surrounded ourselves with lace yarn and patterns, experimenting with techniques, challenging ourselves with charts and stitches. Hopefully, everyone learned something new. From my perspective, everything went as planned and the weather agreed. Our visit to Colorful Stitches in Lenox was a joy as well. The shop looked gorgeous and the staff showered us with attention. Several of us purchased super duper bulky yarn at Colorful Stitches - was that the response to 2 days of knitting with fine laceweight wool?
