This retreat is all about the Cocoknits Method of knitting sweaters. You'll learn the techniques you need to work top down sweaters that actually fit and look good. By the time you leave, you'll have a solid start on a Cocoknits Emma of your very own.
The retreat begins Friday evening at 5pm with a wine and cheese reception, followed by dinner together at the Front Porch. After dinner we’ll gather at the shop for dessert and to learn the Cocoknits increase method..
Saturday morning we'll look at gauge and get you started on your Emma. We’ll break for a yummy lunch catered by Quality Street. and finish Saturday by filling out our Cocokntis worksheets.
Everyone is on her own for dinner Saturday night. We have lots of great restaurants in town, from NY style pizza at The Slice House to trendy upscale dining at Sweetbay.
Sunday we’ll have a Show and Share brunch at the shop - always a highlight of the retreat - bring your best Finished Objects to show off - you'll never have a more appreciative audience! If you don't have to rush off, feel free to hang out at the shop and knit or visit the town.
If you're able to stay, I have scheduled a special even at my favorite bra salon Monday morning. We'll meet at the shop and carpool up to a la Mode Intimates where we'll have a private presentation on bra fit and private measuring for bras that will make you look and feel fantastic!
It's going to be super special and exciting weekend of knitting!
