a couple of weekends ago i had the fantastic opportunity of teaching a knitting workshop at the hatley castle in royal roads university. holy smokes guys... this place is stunning!
of course, knowing this is the x-men school was pretty cool too! ha.
dating back to 1908 this place is just oozing charm and of course, history... it once served as dormitory and mess hall for cadets and staff officers. this facility was going to close in 1995 but due to huge support from the public, the province went into negotiations with the federal government, and it's now continued to be used as a university.
i couldn't have asked for nicer weather, and really, i think this place and knitting just goes together.. hey?
i wish i could have spent more time in the castle, but that's ok. next time. i made sure to get some pics of the grounds...
the workshop went really well! i look forward to more opportunities like this. everyone left pretty excited about knitting :) which is just perfect in my books....
i have to admit. it felt really neat to teach here! of course, now i have to call myself a professor of knitting or something. ;) haha.
i also feel incredibly lucky to live so close to this stunning piece of property! have you ever had a chance to visit? xo
