Another Year in the KAN

Just wants to make you dive on in!
As you probably have noticed from my silence in the Blog-sphere I have been somewhat preoccupied.  All this is due to the rapid onset of Knit August Nights 3 (KAN:3) which was help this past weekend here in Ahuriri, Napier.  Despite having one of the gloomiest, wettest Winters I can remember here, the weather faeries were smiling & the sun shone for the over 100 participants in this years event.  Dave & his Team at East Pier were again stellar, the tutors amazing, the traders tempting & all my KAN Angels & supporters just simply stunning. 

Vibrant fun in Intro to Felting
I have a full album of images from the weekend on my Flikr account here, but here are some of my favourites.  If you think you would like to take part in KAN next year - mark August 23rd - 25th on your calenders & start saving - or get your bi-annual fix of NZ knitting retreats & attend Unwind in Dunedin in March 2013!

It's hard to concentrate with views out the window like this.
All of us just immersing us in the delight that is Margaret Stove
Plenty of time to knit, laugh & eat!
