A Work-In-Progress Retreat

Wine tasting and Wool.
My kind of retreat.
 
 
The afternoon event was sponsored by Fibre Space one of my local city side go-to yarn shops, and held at the lovely Zephaniah winery in Lounoun Co, Virginia.
Bill and Bonnie welcomed us to their historic home and into their parlor tuned tasting room.
We enjoyed tasty treats and cheeses, a sampling of seven wines, some of the best sangria these lips have ever met and a chance to get out the WIPs and work a few rows.

Chatting, wine and knitting...how many mistakes do you were discovered the next day?

I am still oogling over that mantle.
 
I must admit that I did not accomplish much on my current WIPs.

Vests for the little boys. There is one in red and one in blue coming up next.
 
Mystery yarn. Label lost long ago. I love the copper and nickel colorway.
 
There was just too much exploring to do outside.



And purchases to be made back inside.

Yarn, wine and outdoor beauty! A trifecta of deliciousness. :)

Never heard of this winery, but it's on my list now! I'm up in Loudon often enough to take a detour and give them a visit.

Friends and knitting, with wine at such a beautiful historic setting, sounds like a great way to spend the day!
