ESSFall2015: Friday


This weekend was the first annual Eastside Stitchers Fall Knitting Retreat.  We headed out Friday after work east on the 90 fwy to Lake Cle Elem.

I carpooled with JitteryKnitter (who was our fearless driver), Puzan (the navigator), and truespark.  It was a bit foggy, and we had some traffic just as we were leaving the west side of the Cascade Mountains, but the drive was pretty easy and before we knew it we were getting off the freeway and driving through the picturesque towns of Roslyn and Ronald.
The house we rented was huge and just about perfect for our needs.  It had lots of beds (no bunk beds!), lots of bathrooms with showers, a big kitchen, and most important of all a big living room.

 This was the bedroom that I shared with VanesaPolo:
We planned to pot luck our dinners, and then bring our own breakfasts and lunches with food to share for snacks.

In reality, we had Group Food, pretty much for every meal.  We left all of the snacks that were for sharing on the big center work table in the kitchen.  There was way too much food!  and so yummy.  And this photo is just the stuff from the Friday people.  We had 4 more people arrive Saturday morning, with more food!

We somehow found time between eating snacks and meals to knit.  Those photos in the Saturday post.
