I used a chunky cascade yarn for this scarf in a mini bean stitch. This is the first time I have tried the stitch and it worked up very quickly and was easy to learn. You can watch the tutorial here on YouTube.
Well I am back home after a wonderful weekend at the southeast men’s knitting retreat at Asbury Hills Methodist campground in Greenville County South Carolina. We had a great turnout with 20 attendees and I got lots of projects worked on and some new project started. We visited two wonderful yarn shops in Greenville. Yarn and Y’all was a great shop and we also went to my favorite Greenville yarn shop called The Needle Tree. Asbury Hills was a really great facility and we had two different cottages and had all of our classes and meals in the main dining hall. And Friday night we also went out to dinner at Trio brick oven Café in downtown Greenville South Carolina. The food was also particularly good at the retreat center. I already miss everybody and I’m looking forward to next years retreat.
I was invited again this year to submit a jewelry item for the South Carolina Library Association annual conference scholarship for diversity fundraiser. I decided to use a mix of beads and various colors. They range from lampwork beads to Stone to glass and copper and seed beads. The clasp is handmade copper. I hope it sells for a lot of money so that it can go towards the scholarship funds.
