#retreatlog2017 – day five

Surely not…it can’t be…the last day already!!!! The week has flown by, here are some more impressions of our fabulous week…

Days one and two…getting acquainted and the beginnings of short rows.

Days three and four…hiking, medieval towns and working on projects.

Day five…colour theory and how to make chosen photo into knitted fabric.

Soon we will all get together for our last evening, starting with canapés and champagne, followed by last delicious meal cooked for us by our wonderful chef Tomas.

This will be followed by a show and tell, and I can’t wait to see and hear what everyone has to say and show about the past week.

I know one thing…

…Claudia would like to drive home in this!


#retreatlog2017 – day one

All our guests have arrived and are already well settled in. Canapés and Champagne were well received and after introductions an early night was had by all.

Bright eyed and bushy tailed most of us joined Claudia’s knitting yoga class at 8am as stretching our muscles and limbs seemed the perfect way to set us up for a long day of workshops and knitting.

Maestro teacher extrodinaire Claudia soon had everyone’s full attention as she set about introducing this year’s project theme: short-rows. Everyone received a very comprehensive hand-out pack and there was plenty of yarn for practice knitting available. Soon everyone had found their perfect spot for a knitterly workout.

We have brought plenty of samples and inspirational knits with us so that everyone can check out the different short row techniques, and we are always here to lend a helping hand.

I am already looking forward to later today to see how everyone got on.

See you then I hope!
