This past weekend was the 5th annual Kon-O-Kwee Knit Camp. This is my third year at Kon-O-Kwee, Lisa and Elise’s second year (Elise coming all the way from Baltimore!) and Beth’s first Knit Camp weekend. Knit Camp is a weekend getaway for about 50 women at the Kon-O-Kwee YMCA Camp a little north of Pittsburgh.
“What do we do all weekend?” Well… we knit. We knit and we eat and we knit and talk and laugh and make new friends and teach and learn and swap and buy and so much more! There was a sock contest and Beth took second prize for her beaded socks!
Lisa entertained and challenged us with a knitting trivia contest (Did you know China is the biggest sheep producing country, followed by Australia, India, and Iran???) Raspberry Hill Alpacas brought Pretty Boy Floyd for us to pet and feed and yarn and roving to purchase. We were revived with ten-minute chair massages. There were class demonstrations by fellow “campers”. We showed off our finished knits during show and tell and the fashion show. We bid on a variety of knitterly things at the auction. We stayed up late and knit all day while our meals were taken care of by the camp staff. Now, doesn’t that sound like a wonderful way to spend the weekend?
