"Friend" in Need.
Say I had a "friend" who wanted to go somewhere drive-able for a weekend.
Perhaps that "friend" wanted to knit and spin for the entire time, and when not knitting or spinning, was eating, drinking, and laughing with others who were either knitting, spinning, eating, drinking or laughing too.
And, say that the "friend" wanted a yarn store or two to be close by...you know, in case she was into that sort of thing....or maybe to take a class- dyeing or intermediate spinning would be nice.
The "friend" had only a small amount of money, so ideas like Squam (I dream of doing this....someday) or Omega Institute were out, but staying at a bed and breakfast might work.
This "friend" has a few weekends open in the spring and early summer.
