The Knitters Go Camping - To Great Success!

PhotobucketAs mentioned ages ago, five knitter friends and I all trooped up to a nearby campsite on a rainy Labour Day weekend.

No matter for the rain, since we all had a RAWKIN time. Quickly falling into skill-based roles, we had a campfire cook extrodinairre (see Mousewife's bloggy here!), a wood chopper par excellence (see her bloggy here!), and a couple great fire starters.

I, dear reader, along with a blogless bud, was part of the tarp-stringing team. It's a bloomin good thing for those tarps. We stayed snug and dry all weekend long :)
Pictured right, you see the genius that is Rainbow Fire. A night's worth of entertainment in a tiny packet. I always knew I loved colour; to combine my love for fire as well made me a happy camper indeed.
Hardy har.

Some knitting did go down, as did a fair amount of spinning (from a very talented friend!)

This may be the inaugural year for an annual event!

If you can wrangle together a bunch of knitters, and ya'll like camping, you need to go. It's so much fun.

How fun! What a great idea. Hope you didn't use your knitting needles to roast marshmallows!

Awesome! I love it. I'm planning a knitting camping trip for sure next year! Best idea ever.

That looks sounds like a TON of fun. My knitting friends and I rarely venture farther than an hour away (and that's just once a year for Stitches West), but I think we need to do something like this!
