Two weeks

until 2.75, counting the buffet and reunion with friends and scouring the SHP marketplace.

This shot I took at camp two years ago, depicting just some of the wonderful garments we've read about in Meg's columns and publications. All are displayed at camp for us to touch, try on and borrow for part of the day to wear, if we like.

Yes, it's almost like a shrine for many, especially first time campers. And Camp 1 begins one week from today. Remember the excitement of getting everything ready for the first day of school? Remember the joy and awe of School Day #1? That's Camp, too.
Remember the freshly sharpened pencils and new pens and notebooks and everything together in a book bag or back pack or clutched tightly in your little sweaty hand? Maybe an audible gasp as the classroom door is opened? It's part of the yearly camp experience.

Ah the excitment builds as the days go by. Like waiting for the package of yarn to arrive. So many nice things to see, but better yet is to feel and try on. To read and see pictures is one thing, but the experience of touch adds so much more to decide on a project--from this picture which project.

Ahh, camp--it sounds like an experience I need to have someday! I loved camp as a kid, so I'm sure knitting camp, as a grown up, would be fabulous.

Thanks so much for your kind invitation on my blog. I am very grateful for my cyberfriends...and today, I needed to remind myself that you're out there! I'd be right over with my dogs in a flash if we lived near each other! I agree that the baby shower is a bittersweet thing for me, too. However, sometimes I just want the chance to feel included!
