The first week or so of October has traditionally been the time when the Creative Knitting Retreat class with Sandy De Master and Mary Germain is scheduled, along with the Open Knit Studio time. As it turns out, this year was no different…except in many ways. Each group was small in numbers (but not in projects!), with plenty of distance within the studios. The usual non-knitting activities like the fashion show, group dinners and attendance at Columbus Day weekend events around the island were put on hold for another time. We missed seeing so many of our friends, as we have throughout the season, but know that we will see you all again when the time is right.
While the knitters were here, the fall colors grew better each day. It seems the oranges and yellows are especially prevalent this year. We’ve heard the term “forest bathing” and it certainly feels like being bathed in gold as you walk or drive around the island.
From morning until sunset, rain or shine, the colors have been extra-special this year.
We’re crossing our fingers they’ll continue to brighten our days through the rest of October!Share Sievers with Friends...
