Happy Report from the Vermont Retreats!!

Hey Y’all,

Lisa just wrapped up a couple of Knitting and Yoga Adventures weekend retreats in Quechee, Vermont. Not surprisingly, everyone had a great time and attendees came from all over New England and as far away as the Virgin Islands. Week One there was a big group and Cathy Payson came along as the guest teacher. She led classes teaching some of her original designs with fall-inspired themes. There was also a mini-workshop at Six Loose Ladies, a trip to Northern Nights Yarn Shop, and fab food at King Arthur Flour Café.

Week Two was a smaller group, but no less fun. Lynne Barr came along to teach, and really challenged the attendees with a technically tricky sculptural knitting project from her new book, The Shape of Knitting. Week Two folks also attended a mini-workshop at the LYS, learning to crochet flowers to embellish knitting. And dinner at the astonishingly fabulous Cloudland Farm, a farm-to-table restaurant in the Woodstock area.

Registration for next year’s retreats open on January 1, 2015. Set a reminder for yourself! We are going to have a great time on Monhegan Island and in Vermont. The Monhegan trip will be in September. The Vermont trip will be November 5-8.

Enjoy your December knitting!
