Our March Knitting Retreat In Montana

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="622"]Camp Bighorn Knitting retreat Camp Bighorn[/caption] Every March the Open Knitting group at Alpaca Direct goes on a knitting retreat to Camp Bighorn in Plains, Montana.  It's a beautiful retreat space and everyone always has lots of fun. This year we'll be hosting one in the fall as well.  Here are some photos from our latest retreat on March 12-15. We had beautiful weather on the retreat and got to go for a hike.  The scenery at Camp Bighorn is beautiful.

As you should expect from a knitting retreat, we spent the majority of our time hanging out and knitting.  We stayed up late, we had lots of fun, and we can't wait to do it again.  We hope you'll join us next time!

How lovely idea! I,m so jealous!I really think of
it as a dream of life,and so that it will remain because I am Greek and GREECE is too-too far from you.Anyway,have a good time at the next meeting and a Happy Easter to all of you!

There aren’t currently any men that come to the knitting group. But, he’d be welcome if he wants to come!

I’m not sure if a date has been set yet. We’ll post about it here when the date is chosen and we’re looking for people to sign up.

What a great opportunity for me to come home and spend some time in my lovely outdoors of Montana.
