Fall Knitting Retreat -
November 3-5, 2023
Join us for 3 days of relaxation, re-connection and recreation!
Our Fall Retreat will be a Sweater Workshop - Top-Down Construction
And our theme will be IRISH DESIGN in anticipation of our 2024 trip to Ireland.
Our pattern, Tangential Blues, is from Irish designer Carol Feller. We'll start by discussing how to choose the right yarn, then measuring ourselves, working a gauge swatch and discussing how to make sure your sweater will FIT.

We'll also discuss the different techniques required for the sweater - cables, short rows and how to "customize" your sweater to fit YOU.
BONUS: At the end of the retreat, don't get discouraged and put down your project if you hit a bump! When the weekend is finished, further instruction and help will be available by ZOOM meetings!
Regularly scheduled video meetings will allow you to ask questions, get encouragement and see the progress others have made, plus get demonstrations of new techniques as they appear in your knitting.
