No Needle Knitting

Teaching Tunisian Crochet

I had a wonderful time attending the third annual Purl’s Yarn Emporium spring retreat at the Blue Ridge Assembly YMCA in Black Mountain, NC the weekend of April 14, 2018. I decided to offer an informal session on Tunisian crochet and 10 people attended! The retreat was much fun!


7th Annual Southeast Men’s Knitting Retreat 

I just returned home from 4 great days at the retreat at Asbury Hills in Cleveland, SC. We had lots of interesting classes and took a field trip to Fletcher, NC to SAFF. We also had some great gifts from some vendors. The best gift bags were from Luna Lola which is Columbia’s newest yarn shop! I learned about color pooling too which I need to practice. I started a new project too. As usual, I bought too much yarn! Enjoy the photos!

Southeast men’s knitting retreat

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.

Knotty Scarf

I created this scarf using 4 different kinds of yarn and no pattern. The stitches are only single and half double crochet.  I made it while attending the Southeast Men’s Knitting Retreat held in November 2014 at the Blue Ridge Assembly Retreat in Black Mountain NC.
