Back from camp - back to work :(

I flew home last night from camp and returned to work this morning. How can I even think about building light rail trains when my brain is full of fair isle techniques and sweater shaping???? I will forever be thankful that I had the opportunity to attend Meg Swansen's knitting camp as it is such a unique experience. The staff and other campers all share a passion for traditional fibers and design, plus the good humor is so refreshing. A real Zen experience.

My room-mate, Roberta is a truely gifted knitter. She has only been knitting for 2 1/2 years, yet has accomplished so much! I've met 2 knitters in my life that have that inner spark for knitting and whom I feel are exceptionally gifted - and she is one of them. She just "gets it".

My plans are to return next year to Camp 2 - gotta start saving my pennies now.

Started working an a sweet little Dale of Norway baby sweater (1022 Geilo) and am 1/2 way up the body - with steeks (!) to follow. I'll get pictures of the progress... gotta go back to train cost statistics now...

Welcome Home!!!! It was really great meeting you!!!
