Herding knitters! The Spring Knitting Retreat is my only non-hiking tour but some knitters managed to escape on a short hike…

In the meantime, Henrietta and the rest of the group are keeping busy working on their Lopi sweaters.

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!
