The Last Make, Wear, Love Retreat

This past weekend, I was lucky enough to teach at the last Make, Wear, Love retreat, run by Amy Herzog.

I am grateful to have participated in such a tight-knit retreat. Everyone supported each other, students and teachers. There was joy, and silliness. A lot of relaxing happened, and learning and shopping.

I took a few pictures, but nothing can capture the feeling of being among people who have come together for several years thankful to be together one last time.

If you’d like a taste of it, take a look at #makewearloveretreat on Instagram.

There was a fantastic fashion show, hosted by Patty Lyons, who kept everyone laughing and moving quickly.

I fell for the sweater Twitch by Kim Mc Brien Evans (the fabulous dyer Indigo Dragonfly). I bought the yarn from her too, the amazing Chameleon Sock. I like the sweater so much I’m willing to knit at a gauge of 7.5 to the inch.

The retreat has been in Maine since it started, and the state gave us beautiful days and glorious views.

I want to thank Amy for having me teach, my students, and the other teachers for being so welcoming to a first-timer.
