The yarn retreat is by far our most popular event. If you desire to spend time with your yarn-loving tribe, this is the place! Attending the retreat will give you the chance to:

That isn’t all there is to do at the retreat center, however! There are also plenty of opportunities for hiking, wildlife viewing, and bird watching. And door prizes! Grab your yarn and unwind with us!

These rates are per ROOM per night, not per person.

Lodge Room

Lodge rooms are in the same building as the conference room and restaurant. Each room has 2 double beds or a king size bed and a private balcony.

2-Bedroom Cottage

Each two-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage has a fully-furnished kitchen and a private porch or deck that is surrounded by woodland, a short walk or drive from the main lodge. Each bedroom has two queen beds (total of four beds).

1-Bedroom Cabin

Each 1 bedroom cabin has a double bed, full bath, fully-furnished kitchen, and private porch or deck. The cabins are a short walk or drive from the main lodge.

Note: There are a lot of stairs at this venue, and not many handicap-accessible rooms.
Optional Waverly Weekend Cowl Knit Along

With one skein of yarn (approximately 200 yards depending on size), the beautiful Waverly Weekend Cowl can be made over just one weekend and ready to wear on Sunday or Monday to show off your work.

This cowl has an 8-row pattern repeat that is easy to memorize, which makes it great for beginner lace knitters to learn the basics of lace knitting AND it’s great for experienced lace knitters who want something fairly quick and mindless to knit.

The pattern can be easily adjusted to make the cowl smaller or larger, which will be covered in the KAL lessons.

You’ll need:

  1. The FREE Waverly Weekend Cowl pattern – download and print it here 
  2. 1 skein of worsted weight yarn (approx 200 yards) – or 2 skeins if you want to make it bigger
  3. Size 8 circular needles – I recommend 16″ to 20″ needles
  4. Stitch markers (optional but recommended)
  5. Row counter (optional but recommended)

If you would like to participate in the KAL at the retreat, please purchase one of the following yarns (available on the registration form below):

  • Apple Tree Knits Plush Worsted Gradient (100% superwash merino wool)
  • Malabrigo Worsted (100% superwash merino wool)
  • Plymouth Worsted Merino Superwash (100% superwash merino wool)
  • Shalimar Paulie Worsted 60% Superwash Merino, 20% Camel, 10% Cashmere, 10% Silk)

With your yarn purchase, you will receive 1 free month in the Knit Along Club to access the Waverly Weekend Cowl lessons as well as the lessons for any of the other KALs included in the Club. It’s a great way to try out the Knit Along Club!

We will “deliver” your yarn to you at the retreat. We will also have additional yarn, needles, row counters, and stitch markers available for sale at the retreat.

Don't Take Our Word For It!
Here’s What Other People are Saying about the Retreat:

“Awesome, awesome retreat! Beth and Angela are friendly, helpful, talented and willing to help with patterns and mistakes. Beautiful setting - woods, lodge, cottages. Wonderful to learn from the other attendees. Love going to the farm and store and seeing the wonderful yarns and buying.”

Betty Dagley
Friendly, Helpful People

“The thing I liked best about the retreat was all the friendly, helpful people. Also loved the ease of going from our room to the dining room and conference room. The park resort was very pleasant and clean.”

Robin Estes

“As usual, the weekend was simply wonderful. What a blessing it is to be able to spend time with friends that enjoy the same hobby that I enjoy. And it’s always exciting to meet new friends. Show and Tell is one of my favorite parts of the retreat. These ladies are so creative and always inspire me to try a new project that’s a little harder than the one I just finished. I love a challenge!”

Sue Jared
So Relaxing

I haven't missed one yet - I always make time for it. So relaxing. No schedules, no pressure. Just a wonderful stone porch, my knitting and friends.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can I bring my spouse or non-yarnie friend?

    Yes! Friends and family are welcome to join you. They do not have to pay the retreat fee and can share your room and eat meals with you. Your meals are included in the retreat fee. Any guests you bring will have to pay for their own meals. We ask that guests NOT hang out in the conference room with us because there are only enough seats for retreat participants.

  2. Do you have any special COVID policies?

    Pine Mountain State Resort Park requires that masks be worn by all employees and visitors when indoors in public spaces. In the conference room where we meet, we will NOT be enforcing any specific policies, including mask wearing. If you are more comfortable wearing a mask, wear one. If not, don’t. We expect all participants to respect the decisions of other participants – even if they don’t agree with them.

  3. Are you offering any classes?

    This is a relaxing weekend retreat. Therefore, we do not ordinarily offer classes. However, we occasionally offer a small class for an additional fee. If we do, we will alert you by email before the retreat. We also offer an optional knit along. If you sign up for the knit along, you will have access to the online lessons for it.

  4. Can you accommodate my food allergies or restricted diet?
    Yes! We eat in the full-service restaurant at the Park. They can work with you on any special dietary needs.

  5. Will WiFi be available?
    The Park has free WiFi in the lodge, but not in the cabins and cottages. Both the restaurant and our conference room are in the lodge.

  6. What happens after I pay my registration fee? 
    You will immediately receive a confirmation/receipt email. About a week before the retreat you will receive an email with important retreat information, including a packing list, directions to the Park, and schedule for the weekend. You do not need a ticket or confirmation email to get into the retreat. Once you register, we have you on our list. 🙂

  7. I have questions… Who can I talk to?
    Email, call, or text Beth at info@knitalongclub.com or (423) 218-2238.
