Come and join us for a weekend of knitting in a cozy lodge atmosphere just north of Brainerd at Camp Knutson Retreat. Registration is now open to the first 50 people who send in their payment and completed registration form, which can be downloaded from this link:
The meeting will begin with demonstrations of some fun new tools, then we will open the meeting up to everyone! We are asking you to share with us your favorite finished object from 2013, and then tell us what you would like to knit or learn to knit in 2014. So, bring your favorite project from 2013, be ready to share, and help us look ahead to the rest of this year.

Amy will share with us a humorous and heartfelt look at the things we love and don't love about our hobbies, our lives and ourselves.
Amy was the “List Mom” of the original Knit List for over four years before she started KnitU. She’s very proud that she’s been Meg Swansen’s assistant at her Knitting Camp for 20 years. Teaching knitting and helping people learn about the wide range of knitting possibilities is something Amy is passionate about, and she loves solving those stubborn knitting problems!
Have you ever really thought about yarn? How is it dyed? How does the twist in one yarn compare to the twist in another yarn? Why does one fiber work perfectly for a hat, but not a pair of socks? How does yarn work, and how can I make yarn work for me; the knitter!
On May 20 2014, meet Wendy Johnson, our former cablegram editor and author of the new book "Yarn Works". Wendy will be on hand to share her wealth of yarny knowledge with us. So bring your knitting, and be prepared to leave with a whole new appreciation for that lovely string between your needles.
Wendy has also graciously donated three copies of her new book for door prizes. Copies of her book will also be available for purchase, and Wendy will be delighted to sign copies of her book.
Please join us May 20, 2014 at 7pm for "Yarn Works".
