Camp Day One

The weather was amazing!

We had many laughs at 'Game Night'. Price is Right. Knitting Beat the Clock. Knitting Bingo. Pictionary.

Fiona's team lost again. And we didn't even fix it this year.
The yarn shop is set up.

Some of the amazing door prizes from our suppliers.

Now it's time for sleep. Breakfast is at 8am and then our Colour Duet class.
Camp is all about yarn and having fun! So this year we’ve worked with our instructors to come up with something extra special.  
What’s better than learning from one instructor? about learning from TWO?  
Beginning on Friday morning after breakfast and continuing after lunch, this amazing class will harmonize instruction from both Fiona and Beth.  
It will open with Fiona & Beth talking about choosing your colours, then you will go on to dye 5 mini skeins of Shepherd Sock from Lorna’s Laces. 
While one group is laying it down with Beth, Fiona will lead a jamming session looking at working with your mini skeins to use in a small project such as mittens, hat, socks or a cowl; maybe some Fair Isle? some embellishments? some cables? and of course transitions. 
In the dying session, maestro Beth will be guiding you to dye your mini skeins into colours that will work for your project.  
The finale of the class will be a review of what has been learned with an encore from both instructors.
