KnitXperience Lite


March 14-16, 2014
Chincoteague Island, Virginia

It's KnitXperience LITE or Low Impact Techniques for Everyone.


Shake off that winter malaise that seems to grab us by gathering with a group of knitters to relax with your current knitting project, share tips you’ve picked up, and even expand your useful knowledge of knitting while enjoying knitters’ chat. Sound like fun? Read below for what we’ll be discussing this weekend.



Some simple techniques can make life so much more enjoyable for us knitters. We'll be covering some this weekend that are sure to ease areas of your knitting stress.

And then it’s off to the Carodan Farm Wool Shop on the Island for a time to browse & shop just for Lite participants. After we have shopped 'til we drop, it's back to the hotel hopefully with energy to show your current project or one (or more) you just finished. Wind down the evening with a relaxing Knit-In and catching up on news from fellow knitters.

Casting on for shawls, etc, that require 100+ stitches.
How to pick up dropped cast on stitches.
The correct way to pick up stitches.
How to handle two different dyelots.
Reclaiming yarn that has been tinked.
