Our Summer Retreats

Plans are in the works for a couple of great knitting retreats to be held this summer at the Ethelridge Road Knitting Salon North After last year's successful event, I have scheduled two programs for this coming summer. July's event will combine a lace class with plenty of time to just sit and knit in the peaceful and glorious atmosphere found at our Northern location. Situated just west of the Berkshires in East Nassau, New York, we will gather for our lace tutorial (everyone will begin a project based on their personal skill level) and then we will just take in the scenery as we knit, hike, relax and knit some more. There will be great food and of course, some necessary yarn shopping. Our second workshop, scheduled for August, will include an off-site workshop concentrating on finishing techniques or more simply put - How to transform your basic knits into "knockouts" including: duplicate stitch, embroidery, french knots and more. August's retreat will also include plenty of relaxing and hiking at the Salon North along with requisite and wonderful shopping opportunities as well as terrific meals too. I hope to finalize dates and programs this coming week.
