Clara will announce it when she's ready to take registrations, but tradition has it the first weekend in November.

I just decided this morning that if I'm lucky enough to get one of the spots this year I'm coming too and bringing my eight year old daughter, if that's o.k. with Clara. I really was bummed about not going last year due to some personal issues, so I'm getting psyched about this year.

While I haven't posted much lately, I've been an avid lurker....

There's two sides to everything. One knitter's knit stitch is another knitter's purl.

How do.
Meg, I second Julie's "emotion" - how lovely to see a post from you! It would be a delight to see you at the Retreat as we missed you last year. Hope things are going as well as they can for you & your family.
MJB, you can do a search for past Retreats - you'll see Forum stuff about it & then you can do a Newsletter search as well. These things will give you a broader scope of info than I could do in a single post.

Gretchen, I went to the 2003 retreat and came back with some gorgeous sock yarn that I bought from Stony Mountain Fibers, I am quite sure the vendors will not disappoint you

If the KR weekend retreat dates just don't work out for you, perhaps you can join the midwestern retreat www.kneatles.com there are KR members registered one even from your neck of the woods.

OK. well I guess I will be the person to speak up and suggest that the retreat may not be an appropriate place for an 8 year old. The retreat is a large group of knitters who spend 3 days in one large room (from as early as 7 am to midnight)with great food (family style),, several classes and a little shopping thrown in. I sign up for the retreat as a getaway from my everyday life to meet friends with a common interest. I do have children (they are a little older now) and I think kids are great, and we had a beautiful baby with us last year, but we sit for long periods of time and there isn't alot of room in our space for an 8 year old to play. I guess if you plan on spending alot of time away from the group, it might work.....

Plus, that beautiful baby came with a full-time nanny (her great-grandmother) so that the mother (and grandmother - we had four generations of that wonderful family) could enjoy the retreat fully... so I second the "you may want to think twice" sentiment above. It also depends on the contract with where the retreat is held. You'd likely have to pay the fee for the food and lodging (it's not as simple as just tuck her in the room with you) and that may be financially prohibitive (it may not be, I don't know, but I know it would be for me)

In any event, I sure would love to see you again, Meg! I've been thinking about you, and was disappointed you couldn't make it last year!

Meg, be aware that Grave's Mountain Lodge charges PER PERSON, not per room, so you'd double your cost. I second the feeling that most of the folks who attend are escaping from family life, and don't want to deal with anyone's kids. I really hope you decide to come anyway - it's been WAY too long since anyone has seen you, dear!

Yes, and to be clear it is Graves who charges that way, not Clara.

Well the only thing about it is, I work every other weekend. I have already looked ahead and found out that i do work the first weekend of November, which really, really bummed me out. I wouldn't mind going to the one in Wisconsin, but that is out of the question. To far for just a weekend for me. Plus Syria is only a three hour drive for me, so it is really and ideal little jaunt. Plus it is the best excuse to leave early on the way up and stop at shops, between here and there.

Oh well, if it is meant to be, it will be.
