I love Retreat!
My spinning guild - Spinner's Web - holds 2 spinning retreats a year. Last year I went to the fall retreat for the first time and had such a great weekend I signed right up for the Spring Retreat last weekend. Another great weekend of spinning and laughing and eating! We had perfect weather, spent Saturday afternoon outside spinning. The picture above is part of the group, the picture below - the rest. I can't wait for our fall retreat!
I managed to finish spinning the singles for my 2013 Combo/Extreme playing project. Monday night after work I plied - not an easy ply either. I held all three singles together and n plied. The result is a 9 ply. I don't think I would choose to do it again but it was interesting!
