Go Knights Go

I'm working at home today. Okay, working and a bit of knitting.

One of my jobs is working on Camp. It's four months away which seems like a long time but it will be here before we know it.
Imagine a weekend away with someone cooking your meals and making your bed. Oh yeah, you also get to knit all weekend!
Fiona Ellis and Beth Casey will be joining us this year to teach amazing workshops.

The website has been updated with all the information you need. Please email me or call the store if you have any questions.
Meals are a big deal at Camp. We eat a lot :) Meals are eaten at long tables and no one will be sitting by themselves. Returning Campers are great about mixing with the newcomers.

Breakfast is a buffet. Eggs of some sort. Bacon. Sometimes we have a chef making omelettes. There is always lots of fruit. Cereal. Oatmeal. Bread and bagels.

Lunch is also a buffet mixing hot and cold foods. There is always 2 or 3 salads. Breads. Cold cuts. Vegetables. There is something for everyone.

For dinner we order off a menu. Here is a sample menu that I pulled from the Bayview Wildwood website. Don't worry about the prices - all meals are included.

The resort is great about food allergies. They are able to prepare vegetarian and vegan meals as well.

Our suppliers are very generous with our goodie bags. These are in addition to the fantastic door prizes.

This year we will be dying sock blanks at Camp. What is a sock blank?
A sock blank is a long, rectangular piece of knitted fabric created by a knitting machine and then dyed.  The edge of the sock blank isn’t cast off — it’s left loose so that you can knit from it. The basic idea behind the sock blank is that you’ll get an amazing yet unpredictable colourway when you knit with it. 
Read this great blog post from SweetGeorgia Yarns on what you can make with hand dyed blanks.

It's the second intermission of the hockey game. I wrote most of my post earlier today and then forgot to finish it. The game is so close that it's hard to knit.

Attention Quilters - there is a quilt show at the Ancaster Fairgrounds this Friday and Saturday. You can find more information on the Hamilton Quilters Guild website. I think I might stop in Friday morning to see the beautiful quilts that will be on display.

Go Knights Go!
