Fall Retreat ~ La Quinta, Ca

Our spring retreat was last weekend. We where in a wonderful house, right on the PGA West Golf Course in La Quinta,Ca. The weather could not have been better for lounging, knitting, felting, eating, swimming, and relaxing with each other.

Enjoy the Photos

Day 1 started with a stop at Colors in Claremont Village. I love this shop. You can tell from the outside that you are in for treat!

The shop is small, but has
so many wonderful yarns!
The girls working there where the best
with 14 of us raiding their space.
They where very helpful and again
what a great selection of Yarn.

This is our Abode for the weekend.

We spent most of the weekend outside.
Lots of great seating, shade and water.

Manning the Barbecue in the Dark on the first night.
Notice the OTT light?

Conversation, glass of wine and
a great Kitchen.

Day 2
Does it get any better?

This is what we looked at on the
other side of our bushes.

This is the PGA West gold course.
It was closed for reseeding so we were
able to take our golf cart onto the golf course.

What an amazing Golf Course

Back at the Ranch

Enjoying the Table before the sun gets there

Jenny bought some needlefelting kits
and made a cute pig and cat!

Settling in for the Evening

Friday Night's dinner was a catered Taco Bar.
Rosa prepared it all for us and boy was it good.

Day 3

Saturday morning we Felted Soap.
That means we wrapped fleece around a bar of soap
and wet felted the fleece to cover it.

Once they are done you just use them
and the wool felt takes the place of a washcloth.
Here are some more ideas on etsy if you are curious.

Saturday afternoon some went on
another yarn crawl.
We went to Harriet's and the Yarn Co.

There is more then one way to find a soft seat

The knitting must be going well.

I am so lucky to have such a wonderful group of women to share the love of knitting with.

Thank you all for such a lovely weekend.
