Lakedale Resort on San Juan Island

Lakedale Resort, the setting could not have been more beautiful. We were very lucky the weather was perfect, the food was excellent and the company superb. Cat Bordhi and Anna Zilboorg were sharing some of their fiber knowledge with stories about knitting history and their experiences.

I loved sitting around the lodge in front of the huge fireplace with the lake in the background.

This was my spot I was knitting, my Pocket Wheel because I like to spin once in a while. My bowl full of dryer balls. You never know when you need some wool balls, they have so many uses. And all my knitting tools, no wonder I had no room in my suitcase. But wait while we were eating the room turns into a yarn store!
A lady from Lopez Island brought over her yarn store and as if by magic the room turned into a yarn store! More stuff for my suitcase.

Just as quickly as it appeared the yarn store was gone and we were back sitting around knitting learning new stitches, listening to good stories and yes laughed a lot.

The iPads were consulted when needed and a good time was had by all.

I had such a good time I'm sure I'll be posting more bear with me.
