Does anyone know why blogger picks and chooses which photos you can click on? My friend Jean emailed me about the pictures on the last post. You can't click on them to make them bigger, so I went back a few posts to ones I could click on, and it seems that there are some that can be made larger, but most can't. Any ideas? I've uploaded each photo separately today and I think they are all clickable. I will go back and redo the last post as well. (I need to work on the settings of my camera and not be afraid of using the flash!!)
Ok, on to camp stuff. Camp was set up so there were 4 tribes. Rhode Island Reds, Cluckers, Chick-a-biddys and the Dixie Chicks. Each tribe was able to attend all four classes, and the rest of us could sit in if we wanted to. I wasn't able to sit in on Cat's, Tina's or Stephanie's, but I did help with the charity knitting circle. It would have been great to do all of them, but I had fun just the same!!
The sockateers ran the winding station, while Cass and I minded the store and did other little things here and there.
Cookie and Nathania had this great charity knitting project. The sockateers and myself helped with it on Friday. You start out with 8 blocks that are 20 stitches wide and 8 inches tall. Sew them together and pick up stitches along the 4 sides, using four circular needles. Then knitting from 4 balls of yarn, you knit in the roung until the blanket is as large as you want it. Two of the knitters will do yo's at the corners, and the other two will just knit all the way around. Stariel has a photo of me in the group on one of the days. It's her April 11th post and I am sitting profile. Chappy is on my right, Nathania on my left, and Stariel across from me. She also has some other great photos.
Some of the things I received while at camp. A staff t-shirt (with camp name on the back), name tag, goodie bag with yarn and stitch markers (that I made for camp)
Oh and a bandana that one of the sockateers made just for the staff. I wore it around my neck.
That evening we enjoyed the chicken antics. Our homework assignment that needed to be done before camp, was to knit up a chicken. I thought mine was hoakey, but my recipient is enjoying it. The one I received was from one of the sockateers. We had a swap for the chickens. Actually it was kind of a game with a story that had left and right sprinkled through out it. When we heard the left, we would pass out bagged up chicken to the left and so forth. It was great fun.
This is the one that came home with me.
This one went home with Linda.
And Linda and me.
