Knitter's retreat, a smashing success!

Despite the TN State Parks system's snafu, we rallied and gathered at Embassy Suites. We had a wonderful time. Lots of knitting, some learning, lots of talking, eating and drinking, but mostly lots of knitting. I managed to finish one pair of socks, that's it! I worked on a scarf a bit and some more on the vintage sweater, but it was pretty busy with talking and surfing Ravelry for various yarn and pattern references. I came home with 3 skeins of cotton/silk from MistiAlpaca. I think it's going to be a short-sleeved top, maybe Keyhole?

Memphis SnB (aka DK Knitters) makes the news

We were delighted to host Kate Jacobs, author of The Friday Night Knitting Club, on January 12th, and would like to extend special thanks to the DK Knitters (featured here with Kate) for their help promoting our event, as well as hosting a special luncheon event for Kate! She had a very special time with us at Davis-Kidd, and we greatly appreciate the support and warm response. The Friday Night Knitting Club fans, stay tuned for the release of Kate's newest book, Comfort Food, which will be on sale at Davis-Kidd this May!
