CH 119: Knitting Pipeline Georgia Retreat 2016


April is flying by. I hadn’t declared a theme for the month, but one has emerged all by itself: this is a month of Travel! I’ve been so spoiled recently with all of these amazing journeys, so I’ve tried to bring back a little of the magic to share with all of you.This week’s episode is another recap of a wonderful knitting trip, this time to Georgia to spend time with old and new friends at Paula’s amazing Knitting Pipeline Retreat.
