The knitters are now steeking (cutting open) their sweaters to make cardigans with the help of Henrietta at the sewing machine (to secure the edges before we cut). I love my little assistant!

  1. Everything about the retreat looks amazing. It’s a dream of mine to go one day. Those little lopi sweaters are just beautiful! I love all the photos, and the dolls and animals are so sweet. Is the little boy wearing a large sweater or wool pants too? He looks nice and warm. Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful images of the tours. Inspiring!

  2. The knitters to thank! :-) The little boy is wearing an overall :-)
