Time for another photo update for our second day at Cama Beach Crochet Retreat 2011!
It’s Deb (CerDeb on Ravelry) teaching her class this morning! With Liz, Debbie and Barbara.
I took Jimbo’s class on knitting needle makeovers with Jaquie from Australia! We took knitting needles and made them into tunisian crochet hooks!
Fearless Leader dropped in to desecrate a knitting needle and make a tunisian hook too!
Ready for your labotomy? (Seriously, gotta wear gloves when you’re handling the stain.)
Jimbo sporting Dippy to take him up to the new hall. “I’m a Lumberjack and I’m OK…”
Fearless Leader’s Hubby (Park Ranger Jeff) and Amy’s husband Dennis and I worked on the Scrabble puzzle. It was fun to try to come up with crochet/retreat related words only. OK, we cheated on one. Some letters were missing from the game. Can you find the cheat?
What a fabulous tea tasting ceremony provided to us by local tea master, Tobi Cain (Tea By Tobi).

A beautiful tea table.
Dennis (Amy’s hubby) is still working on the Scrabble board.
Everyone really enjoyed the tea tasting!!
After tea, some of us gathered with Jimbo to do a “hook tasting” focus group experiment. Those 8 varied hooks I posted a photo of yesterday? Today we tested them all out, noting likes, dislikes and general observations, including hand hold, favorite hooks and tight or loose stitcher!
Laurinda and Willow.
You heard there was a tattoo artist available at the retreat, right? Tracie is getting a Lovely “Crochet Or Die” tattoo!
For the evening program, we heard a speaker from the Center for Wooden Boats and Park Ranger Jeff gave us a presentation on the Native American archeological finds from Cama so far. Very interesting!
Willow’s ready to run by the beach some more. Before we took off, I caught a picture of her sporting her new hat Laurinda made during the tea tasting. Cute!
