The leaves  are rustling, jack-o-lanterns appear on doorsteps
and longer nights beckon to a new project.

Must be time for a weekend get together to knit
with friends of Countrywool
at the Winter Clove Inn, Round Top, NY.

Planning to come? The more time we have to get supplies ordered, the better, so drop us an e-mail, a text or call.

Love to knit? Need to leave the fast paced world behind for a bit and collect yourself? Want to see and be with knitters who LOVE what they do?  Need to broaden your horizons and try a few new knitting techniques?   We will explore the works of Elizabeth Zimmermann and knit a BABY SURPRISE JACKET and practice grafting AND two handed, stranded knitting while making the cap from KNITTING WORKSHOP.  Don't own the book? Order one at left and it will be at the retreat waiting for you. This event is a NO JUDGMENT zone. Beginners and experienced knitters will work side by side enjoying themselves.
