Supplies List for

Rip Van Winkle Knitting Retreat
Friday, Saturday and Sunday, November  15, 16 & 17, 2019



The BEST things you can bring with you are your finished projects.
We all learn SO MUCH from each other at the retreats, and many times
folks find inspiration for their next knitting project in YOUR knitting bag,
so please bring LOTS for show and tell on FRIDAY AFTERNOON.
There is WIFI at WINTER CLOVE INN, so bring your laptops/ipads/mobile-gadgets with you so we can
play a little bit on RAVELRY and FACEBOOK and get to know their knitting communities better.

Please note: you may bring your own yarns and tools to this retreat.
There will be needles, yarns, gadgets, and books there for sale, but if you are supplied already
with what you NEED, then you won't have to buy it.
Noted below each project are the yarns in stock at Countrywool that will work.

There will be at least 6 different carefully selected-for-color kits
for each project at the retreat when you get there.
Payment options: cash, check and credit card.
