2013 Purlygirls Knitting Retreat

I had the best knitting-filled weekend ever. My knitting group, the Purlygirls, had its annual retreat to Fort Worden in Port Townsend, and it was so much fun. The weather was amazing, especially for Spring in the Pacific North West. It was warm and sunny, and we spent the weekend eating, drinking, shopping, lounging in the sun and, of course, knitting.








We took the ferry over from Seattle early on Friday. After a quick stop at The Artful Ewe in Port Gamble, we made our way to Port Townsend where we naturally checked out the local yarn stores. At Fort Worden, which is now a national park, we had rented one of the officer’s houses for our whole group, and we spent most of our time hanging out there, knitting. Saturday morning, Amy took some photos for Erin‘s new shawl pattern, and the rest of the day was spent exploring town and/or knitting. Sunday we sadly had to head back, but first we made a detour to check out Churchmous Yarns and to grab lunch before getting on the ferry to go home. It was a very good weekend.

    It was so much fun having you along this year. I think we need a re-match at Jenga. (I didn’t even see those cute knit balloons.)

  4. Sounds so lovely!

    Hello! I am curious to learn if you are planning for a different location for your purlygirls retreat this year?

    1. Nope, it’s always the same.
