Holiday Knitting, Knitting Holiday

One of our amazing teachers, Katherine Lymer (she'll be teaching Beginner Magic Loop and a Sock Heels Master Class for us at the retreat) wrote a post yesterday about Holiday Knitting and Knitting Holidays.

It's that time of year when the thoughts of us, in the northern hemisphere, are likely to turn to summer holidays. It may be that you're not going away – hoping to enjoy the best of the summer sunshine at home – but for those of us with school age children, this is most definitely holiday time, if only a holiday from school.

Clearly you're speaking to a woman who wants it all: Near endless hours of knitting, interrupted only for activities of her choosing. It was one of the motivating ideas behind my yoga / knitting retreat day: Start the day practising some yoga, then spend the rest of the day knitting with beautiful yarn, eating delicious food, and just generally chilling out before going for a soak in the hot tub. Heaven. While it's only a day, I'm hopeful that the meditative pace of the day will really help those joining me to fully relax so that they'll feel refreshed – as well as pleased with their knitting accomplishments.

The next sensible step would be to take the knitting retreat idea to more than one day and I'm delighted to be teaching at just such an event this autumn: The 2015 Geeky Puffin Knit Palooza, in Edinburgh from 29th October – 1st November.

We're thrilled that Katherine is one of our teachers and that she is so excited about teaching for us. If you haven't signed up for the retreat yet, go so up here now! Happy Knitting!
