Knitting is to be a pastime, a hobby, a distraction, an artform, relaxation, a labor of love. It could be one or all of these for you. However, I think that all of us want to enjoy our knitting. Our plan for this weekend is to guide you through some techniques that will make your knitting go smoother, be less stressful and more for pure enjoyment. With that in mind, we invite you to join us as we not only share these skills but also share the beauty of Chincoteague Island as it is awakening from a long winter
Some of the techniques that will be sampled: tricks for casting on, binding off, use of markers and lifelines, record keeping, finishing the back of your work. Some techniques will be a demonstration, others for you try out and master.
The Retreat will be held in the Conference Room of the Island Resort Hotel on Chincoteague Island.
