2-7 September, on an island off the coast of Maine. Click here for more details. A brief summary of Knitting From the Yarn Up:
Knitting From the Yarn Up is a design and technique-intensive retreat focused on understanding fundamentals such as measuring, sizing, and gauge, as well as exploring advanced knitting techniques and creating custom patterns and hand-dyed yarn. Developed for knitters with at least modest experience, this course will be enjoyed by all who strive to enhance their knitting skills and deepen their understanding of pattern development.
In short, we’re going to dye and design and learn a LOT of stuff, and when we’re not knitting and watching the sea pound the rocky coast, we’ll be eating tasty food and having fun. Maine is one of my favorite places on Earth — really — and if you’ve never been, well, you need to go!
I might have even talked Amy of Spunky Eclectic fame into climbing Katahdin with me afterward. We’ll see. Meanwhile, you’re definitely going to want to get yourself stranded on the island with me. Nothing goes better with yarn than fresh lobster and pine trees, my friends.
