Event description

Description

Welcome to the first annual Birds of a Feather Knitting Retreat hosted by Fly in the Fibre. We are excited to host this event in our beautiful Creston Valley. With the main goal of gathering people together who share the love of knitting, we want to also introduce you to the many wonderful spots in the Creston Valley that you can knit in.

Creston Valley

We know that the best feature of a retreat is the knitting but what if you could do it at a winery? or at Fly in the Fibre? or a quiet spot near a beautiful river? Our relaxed Kootenay lifestyle and pristine scenery make for a prime location for you to meet new friends, reconnect with old ones, and enjoy what we love the most- knitting!

Let's just WING it!

Carmen Ditzler will be our guide and instructor as we knit our way into the Goldfinch shawl designed by one of our favourite designers- Andrea Mowry. This shawl is a perfect project for our retreat. A couple of good challenges for us to sink our beaks into such as shaping on a bias, stripes, color blocking, simple lace, short rows, super elastic bind off, increasing, and decreasing but this shawl also has a good rhythm that once you get into it, we will be able to chat and knit with not too much difficulty.

Sneak Peak!
