Dates: October 20-25 or October 27-November 1. The retreats are held in Friday Harbor, on San Juan Island, Washington.
This retreat carries a special focus dear to my heart, and I hope, to your heart as well. It is intended to be deeply restorative, with the goal of replenishing your inner resources for the year ahead. I first offered this retreat in 2018, and it refilled so quickly with happy participants that I am offering it twice in 2019.
I’ll be teaching a handful of one-skein projects designed especially to engage you with a pattern rhythm that embeds itself in you like a lullabye, so that you mostly needn’t look at instructions. And as usual, I’m always available for individual knitting consultations, delighted to help resolve problems, illuminate mysteries, or teach special techniques as individuals wish.
We’ll spend some time each day knitting in communal silence, letting the deep wellspring of knitting recalibrate us and fill the room as our hands move in quiet harmony. As someone reflected after a period of silent knitting last year, “What a magical and grace-filled time we shared.” If you have never experienced this, you may find it to be a nectar that increases in sweetness day by day.
