KnitXperience 2017

Posted by Caroline Hershey

Our knitting retreat at Graves Mountain is coming up this weekend and we are excited about having Kate Atherley present several workshops. registration has been closed for some time now and we will descend on the Poplar Lodge and transform it into a knitting paradise. Oh what fun!

Every year Dan and I dye a special yarn for just this event and we are getting it done not without some late evenings along the way. Rhinebeck and this retreat came a little too close to each other. We haven’t even settled on a name for this collection. Maybe you can help us out after seeing it.

Here’s a sample of what I’ve come up with putting together one of Kate’s patterns and Stephen West directions on how to fade for one of his patterns. I’m hoping to finish by the retreat. We’ll see.


Rhinebeck YAY!

Not a bad trip up, got an early start and Dan did all the driving. I finished two pair socks. TaDa! Had dinner at unexpected restaurant find. Lia’s in Pine Plains. Delicious Italian food.

Looking forward to getting everything set up tomorrow and hopefully not discovering anything strategic that I forgot. That would be cause for happy dance. Can’t wait to show off Tides gradient yarns and rest of the Chincoteague Colors. New models for Wave Action scarf using Surf Silk and Smattering of Lace in fingering wt stole width.

Chincoteague Bay was smooth as glass as we left this morning. Cormorants and egrets were about and we spied several black back stilts in the marsh. The beautiful Glaswort plants were ruined by the high tides.

We’ll be traveling to Rhinebeck for the festival. Look for us in Bldg. 39, booth spaces 7 & 8.The festival is Oct 21 & 22 and we will have the Chincoteague shop closed all week.  We’ll have lots of Tides Gradient and 6-PAK mini skeins as well as our other Chincoteague Colors yarns.

Don’t forget about our Birthday Girl Sale which ends Saturday night, 14th,  at midnight. Lots of great yarns are still left.

This Great Blue Heron just flew in to chase an egret off this spot.
