KnitXperience Lite


March 6 - 8, 2015
Conference room at the Chincoteague Island Motor Inn
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.

How many ways can one stitch be used to create so many different looks? We'll be exploring these this weekend.

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 conference room 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.

lite-color.jpg  Saturday let's look at what a slip stitch is and how it is formed. Then feast your eyes on the many models we have of the resulting constructions using this stitch. Yes, it is a slick stitch, creating geometric patterns, vertical and horizontal striping as well as being used in cabling and so many places you really have not thought about.

lite-color.jpg Saturday afternoon we will choose one or more of the patterns that caught our interest and give slip stitch knitting a try.

lite-color.jpg Sunday morning will consist of trying our hand at continental and Portugese knitting. These methods of knitting are handy to add speed to our knitting.
