Ahhh... It's a New Year!


New Years Greetings from Maine!



This time of year always feels fresh and new like a blank palette spread out in front me waiting for the first creative strokes of planning.  Join me in dreaming as the days are stretching out and the sun is rising a wee bit higher every day. My knitting reveries are already taking shape lured by the multitude of stunning images of new designs, luxurious fibers and colorways I see everyday online. 

Explore your knitting dreams by coming away with us on a fabulous retreat in 2019!  

2019 is shaping up to be a great year for Knitting & Yoga Adventures with new and renewed retreats spread across the year.  After a spectacular 2018 traveling to New Mexico, Vermont and let's not forget, Haystack the bar has been raised.


Here's a look at what's coming our way in 2019...

Cape Ann, Massachusetts, 

April 4-7, 2019


We'll spend a relaxing long weekend in Rockport, MA at The Emerson Inn learning historic knitting techniques as only Beth Brown Reinsel can teach them. Each day will include yoga sessions, great food surrounded by the wide open Atlantic Ocean views off the Cape Ann seashore.  We'll explore the winding streets of historic Rockport, walk the sandy shoreline and make new friendships on this lovely Spring weekend.


Abiquiu, New Mexico, 

June 2 - 8, 2019


On this fun day-tripping tour of northern New Mexico we will go deep into the heart of Georgia O'Keeffe country where we will soak in natural mineral springs, meet the ancient Churro sheep left behind by the Spanish explorers, and attend a natural dying workshop at the famous Tierra Wools of Los Ojos. All this is included along with our daily knitting workshop sessions with Susan Mills at our home-away-from-home, The Abiquiu Inn. Extend your experience with an optional day trip tour to Acoma Pueblo.


Monhegan Island, Maine, 

September 15 - 21, 2019


K&YA's classic retreat, a full week on the majestic Monhegan Island with the highest bluffs on the Maine coastline. We will enjoy daily yoga sessions, island walks, visits to artists' studios along with Norah Gaughan leading our daily workshops from our home base at the Monhegan House. We conclude our week on 'island time' with a delicious waterside lobster bake and a yarn crawl home visiting unique Maine fiber venues.



Quechee, Vermont, 


October 31 - November 3, 2019


A cozy fireside favorite retreat that fills fast! We fill the beautiful Quechee Inn at Marshland Farms every year where we enjoy daily yoga sessions, fine food, and fireside knitting each evening.  Beatrice Perron Dahlen will lead our daily knitting workshops teaching her Lopapeysa and color work design techniques. In our free time enjoy visiting nearby Woodstock, King Arthur Flour and the lovely knit shops in the area. Join us for this perennial favorite!


We all hope to see you on one of these great trips in 2019!
