Are you ready for a real get-away weekend again? KnitWit Yarn Shop is hosting a knitting retreat right on the ocean in Maine next June. And because we are unsure of the COVID situation, they are planning it in a way that will keep us all safe.

Bristol Ivy, Alicia Plummer, and Jackie Ottino will be there to teach knitting, spinning, and dyeing classes. When you’re not in class you’ll have the opportunity to go kayaking, hike on the trails, or hang out in the gardens with the sheep and goats. You may choose to relax, visit the marketplace, or just knit in the beautiful outdoor setting.
