San Antonio Fiber Retreat 2015

This past weekend was SAFR was the 2nd Annual retreat......I had such a great time!  I have tons of pictures to show you, but I will do a massive insert at the end of this blog post.

I knitted on quite a few things this week.....but mostly socks.......

I finished my 'burberry' pair, which is now Paige's pair because she loves them.  I have ordered more yarn to make me some more....

I started a pair of rainbow socks.....I love this yarn....Manic Pixie Zoey Base....Darlene bought me this yarn and I love it!

And I worked a little on my loopy academy socks...

What?  There was a new bag you saw?  Why yes there birthday is this coming Wednesday and as part of my gift from Darlene, she gave me some new bags (yes, she will have them in her shop!)  I am using the medium bag for the rainbow socks above....and I also got a full set below....

I love these bags....they have cherries on them and cherries on the inside...there is even a cute scottie dog on cute!  Thank you Darlene!  You are too good to me....

I also got a happy sunflower one......If you do not smile looking at this bag....there may be something wrong with you......I love the bees and the sunflowers!

I worked a little on the weigh it shawl

Last week I showed you my boxy...but it was not in a matching bag...well, I now have it in a bag that I think matches much better!!!  I also was not sure I was going to have enough yarn so I had to acquire a little more of this yarn....Darlene ordered it and it came looks like it matches, but I think I am going to cake it up and alternate skeins just to be safe.

I started the Strickmich!Club shipment number 1 is called Thousand Tulips

For stash enhancements I have not mentioned yet.....I got a new did not make it in time for me to wear it to the retreat...but I still love it!

I also got a new skein of Wollmeise Blend int he Confident colorway...this is the same type of yarn I am doing the Martina Behm Strickmich!Club 2015 first package with...but it is a darker red colorway.

I also bought a is very pretty (even if I do not know anything about spinning)!

I decided to give spinning a try during the retreat....Jeanette of The Book Stitcher Podcast helped me get started...(no laughing!)

Yesterday, after I got home, I started a new hat for Antonio....he wants another Ninja Turtle hat in Blue....I think Orange will be next!

I think that is it for me for the week of I will kill you will tons of pictures at the retreat.....enjoy!  Some of these pictures are mine, but I also stole quite a few that other ladies posted on FB.

Happy Happy Knitting!


  1. Totally jealous about the retreat. How many folks were there? I would have been there in a heart beat.

    And still the same question as last week, are you gonna have matching bags for all your knitting projects? I am not sure I could do that with my stash.

    1. Ruby, I do not have a bag for each item in my stash....just my projects.....I think if you get yourself a bag or two to match the current projects you are working on (or start some new ones), you may get some knitting mojo back! :)
