2015 Purlygirl Retreat

This last weekend was my knitting group's annual retreat to Fort Worden. We go every Spring and spend the weekend eating, laughing, talking, and knitting. 

Fort Worden is a beautiful place to walk and I enjoyed some time on the beach (I also took the opportunity to stretch since marathon knitting is hard on my hands). The weather was a bit brisk but warm enough that I didn't need my coat, just a handknit sweater. 

There was knitting on the porch, knitting in the living room, knitting at the dining room table, and knitting in the car. Basically, lots and lots of knitting all of the time and it was wonderful.

It was great to spend time with ladies I don't see very often as well as those that I do see often and spend some time relaxing and catching up. The retreat gets better every year and I can't wait until the next one.


  1. Looks like a blast! I love my knitting retreat here in the plains, but I'm envious of the beach you get to enjoy!

  2. Beautiful pictures Erin...absolutely gorgeous!!! So glad you had such a wonderful weekend!

  3. So lovely! I would love to be in your knitting group 😍

  4. What a beautiful environment. It must be bliss to enjoy a weekend with other knitters and just relax and knit.
