As you know, everyone arrived at Cama Beach State Park for the Crochet Retreat on Sunday for check in. We gathered, celebrated and rested. Then Monday morning is when we all came together, shed free of the traveling wearies and serious fun began! Here are some photos from the day.
Shibaguyz’ cardigan class was awesome! If you ever get a chance to take one of their classes, do it!
View of the cabins from the new hall above where we had the cardigan class.
Another view from the balcony of the new building over the water.
At the yarn store in Stanwood “Pinch Knitters.” VERY crochet friendly!
Look it’s Deb (CerDeb)!

Fearless Leader’s put to work winding off yarn!
Can you tell these ladies love yarn?
My birthday presents. I’m turning 40 on Friday, so yes I am buying this for meeeeee….!
This is such lovely alpaca. Will become my Shibaguyz cardigan. I decided I like it way better than the alpaca I originally picked up for it.
Time for the evening program and drawing for prizes!
Jimbo and I spoke about hook anatomy, design and engineering. Don, Dennis, Jimbo and I worked on these variations to be used during the Tuesday afternoon breakout session on the same subject. We’re going to have everyone “taste” test them and write down what they like and don’t like, along with how they hold and use their hooks! Should be a really interesting experiment!
Jimbo and Janet are talking about hook designs that work for her.
Program’s over, but we’re all still talking and crocheting.

A few of us gathered over at Jimbo’s cabin for food and drink to wind up the evening. Hey! Jimbo had 4 hookers in his cabin!
