This is the present location of the first MN Knitters' Days at Silver Lake Camp in New Brighton, MN, many years ago. It was a strange feeling visiting the site a few days before I was going to the present day site at Villa Maria in Frontenac, MN.
was the instructor, teaching the Lapland mitten from Rovaniemi
, Finland. Miniature version, knit by an old man in Finland.
Showing the right and wrong side of the work. Besides knitting, sometimes we sold something that didn't fit when finished. Nancy, on the left, knit this beautiful sweater which she didn't like the way it looked on her. Barb tried it on and it was beautiful on her. (I didn't think it looked bad on Nancy.) Show and Tell is a highlight of the weekend! Karen's shawl was a highlight of Show and Tell. There were also shopping opportunities. This is a work in progress, showing the way it is worked. The construction varies a little from Norwegian colored work and Fair Isle. A display of the work. It was fun to see the different color combinations.
