Planning Ahead to Summer

Last year I organized an alternative knitting camp at a state park in Wisconsin. Six of us converged to knit, eat, chat, swap stash, eat, knit, burn stuff, etc. for a couple days. This year, we're doing it again!

The Other Knitting Camp in Wisconsin
July 22-24
Devil's Lake State Park, Baraboo
(about 35 miles NNW of Madison)

We have room for a total of 12 people. Four spaces are spoken for.

The cost runs about $25 per person for the share of campsite expenses and food.

Let me know if you want to come. It's a ton of fun. Devil's Lake is a beautiful park. I'll bring my canoe and the water there is very clean and clear.

This knitting camp features NO classes! NO workshops! NO famous Knitting Personalities! But you can't beat the price!

Edited to add the following details:
Official check-in/out time at Wisconsin State Parks is 3 p.m. I hope to be up there pretty close to that on the 22cnd. I'm not sure how long I'll stay on the 24th. It's pretty flexible.

Also, for those who aren't able to commit to camping for two nights, you can certainly come for a day visit and hang out. Show up with snacks in hand and you'll be welcome with open arms. ;)

Anyone who wants details should email me (address in my profile).

Sounds wonderful! But I would have to use your canoe to cross an ocean to get there, I'm afraid... sigh.

I *love* that you guys do this. I would so be there if I lived remotely near WI. Ha ha!

1. Elizabeth, this may be harsh for you to hear, but you are a famous knitting personality.

2. Bezzie, please come! I will sponsor you. Really.

3. Other people, please come!

Ooo! It sounds like fun! I'll think of you from my medicated stupor on the sofa!!!!

Ah, too bad I love several states away! That sounds like lots of fun.

If there is a demand, I will be happy to teach a class on How To Do Nothing But Knit And Laugh.

Can't wait!

Enjoy your holiday!

I'll need to send an email. I think a midweek late July escape could work! (I'm a geeky old girl scout camp fiend from way back.)

Don't forget to wear your uniform, jp! Certainly not a requirement, but oh so entertaining.

Oh! What time does it start/end on the 1st/last day? I could be tempted to drive up there...HUGE project due the week before, so this could be my reward, hehe! Very affordable for a few hours' drive. After some more details I can make a decision.
