Back from camp, and BOY am I tan!

Yes, it's been awhile.

Our family stepped back and took a long retreat.

We've been away at camp, a family nudist camp in the Southern US, getting in touch with our real selves. (We also used a TON of sunscreen.)

I thought it would be a good opportunity to refine my photography skills, but they confiscated my camera when we checked in. So, unfortunately, no photos.

In between the sun bathing, cooking classes and co-ed ice hockey, I did manage to get some knitting and spinning done. Now, that's an interesting sensation in the nude!

4 ounces of Optim from Chameleon Colorworks. 360 yards. This is so soft that we took to wearing it wrapped around our necks. On the cooler days, we actually wrestled each other for it.

Camp Buck-Nekkid considered it a necklace, so it was acceptable to wear in public.




Two little baby sweaters. These are from the same pattern, Cottage Creations 'Babies and Bears' sweater.

There are endless color possiblities in this pattern. It's my favorite baby sweater.




I did so want to see how they fit on a co-campers baby, but it was against the rules.


Here's hoping they fit the grandbabies of my friends...

















No, we weren't really at Camp Buck-Nekkid.

But it makes a darn good reason for being absent, doesn't it?

It's 5:56 in the morning and I just snorted coffee out my nose! I was seriously thinking - WOW! There is a LOT more to this woman than we all thought! WHOOOOO!

Hilarious!

Love those precious baby sweaters and I would have definitely been fighting for the pink yarn).

South East...and here I was thinking that you came this direction and didn't invite us! Or that you were here and somehow I missed it??!!

Glad you're back!

You are too funny. Love the sweaters and especially love the yarn. I have received over a pound of roving and haven't touched my wheel in months. I feel so guilty.

Glad you're back.

Oh my goodness! I was reading that with my hand over my mouth and my eyes huge! All I could think was "I had NO IDEA!"

Then I laughed out loud :-)
