Lace it up! -A Knitting Mini-Retreat

Learn to Knit Lace with Marilyn Guille!

Have you always wanted to learn to knit lace but maybe you have been too intimidated by how complicated it looks? Believe it or not, lace knitting is simply the strategic placement of four common stitches, with an occasional ‘yarn-over’ thrown in: knit, purl, k2tog and ssk. Join us for a weekend workshop to get over your fear of lace-knitting, and end up with an amazing lace ‘sampler’ scarf, antimacassar or ‘stole’ ... just in time for Easter, Mother’s Day, Grad a June wedding, or any other special occasion!

We’ll cover the basics, and armed with some tips and tricks to make your lace-knitting journey smooth as silk, you’ll join a centuries-old knitting tradition, and discover the joy of creating beautiful heirloom fabric with contemporary fibres and tools.Included in the cost of the class are 2 skeins of Fly Dyed yarn and a delicious lunch on Saturday. As with all of our retreats, there will be lots of time to just knit, knit, knit!Join us in learning a new skill with a very experienced instructor and using yarn that will make your eyes and fingers happy!
