Weekend with Nautical Yarn
About the Event
Ludington bed and breakfast and Nautical Yarn have created a relaxing weekend getaway that combines knitting, great food and time with friends!
The talented team at Nautical Yarn will be teaching a class on an interesting and trendy project to be announced soon.
The weekend of April 5, 6, and 7, 2019.
Friday Night, April 5th
We will have a delicious, light supper in the Nautical Yarn Studio. We will discover the yarn used in the pattern, the pattern design, and the contents of the kit. You will cast on and begin your Lake Michigan Waves Shawl. You will also knit and block your swatch to be measured Saturday morning.
Saturday, April 6th
Saturday morning, we will begin at 9 AM in the Nautical Yarn Studio. You will learn the eyelet stitches used in the shawl pattern. Also, you will learn a variety of methods to transition colors. You will work on your shawl project.
After lunch on Saturday, you will learns the "waves" lace stitches and practice a set of "waves". Following Saturday evening dinner (on your own), a B & B tour and kitting party will be sponsored by the Ludington Area B & B Association. Everyone is invited to enjoy refreshment and knit with new-found friends. Gifts & Door Prizes are part of the fun, too!
