Madrona Fiber Arts Retreat 2010

February 20, 2010 at 8:02 pm 1 comment

I didn’t sign up for classes this year.
So, knit1frog2 and I made of day of visiting the Madrona Marketplace and going out for lunch.

We hit the Blue Moon booth, it’s great to see the colors in person and an extra treat to check out the Rare Gems (one off colorways) and Mill Ends.

Socks That Rock
two lightweight Rare Gems and
one heavyweight Mill End in ? Denim?

habu textiles had a booth, it was exciting to see so many habu yarns in so many colors.

I ordered yarn for my next project:

Catherine Lowe Simple Couture 4.01 Hat and Cowl

I ordered alpaca silk in black violet.

I took Catherine Lowe’s class at Madrona last year and have been pondering what I learned ever since. She is an excellent teacher and a delightful person.
It worked out perfectly that I hadn’t signed up for Madrona classes; a Catherine Lowe Design & Fit workshop is being offered locally in May and I was able to sign up for that!

Lucky for knit1frog2 and me, walking to lunch took us past
hello cupcake and we wrapped up our day with yummy cupcakes.

And who is this fun looking bunch?
