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 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.
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).
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.
This fun little project bag is knit mostly in stockinette stitch and includes a lot of short rows. The repetitive nature of this pattern makes it the perfect project for learning how to do short rows.
The pattern is written for wrap and turn short rows, but our lessons will include instructions for 3 more short row techniques. Experiment with all 4 styles of short rows in this project and choose your favorite!
The kit includes 1 skein of Hinkston Handmade self striping yarn in either fingering or sport weight. Choose your color when you arrive at the retreat.
You must purchase the $3 pattern at https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/traveling-knitters-yarn-pouch.
You will also need a 24″ circular needle, size US 2 or whatever size you normally use for knitting socks, and standard knitting notions. You can use a longer circular needle if you use the magic loop method of knitting in the round. (Magic loop instructions are included in the KAL lessons.)
Note: With fingering weight yarn, most English style knitters will use a US size 1 or 2 needle for this project. Most Continental style knitters will use a US size 0 or 1 needle. If you choose the sport weight yarn, you could go up a needle size or 2.
Receive 1 free month in the Knit Along Club to access the Traveling Knitter’s Yarn Pouch lessons, which will teach you everything you need to know to complete this pattern. It’s a great way to try out the Knit Along Club!

I needed time away to relax, laugh, and enjoy my craft. I enjoyed the knit along and I like the relaxed schedule that allows you to take time to do other interests, like hiking and swimming. I particularly enjoyed having girl-time and meeting like-minded crafters who taught me new techniques to improve my skills.
“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.”
“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!”
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.
The retreat officially starts at 10am on Friday, though people arrive throughout the day. The retreat ends at 3 pm on Sunday. The retreat fee includes:
The retreat fee does NOT include:
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.
We do not. 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.
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.
What is your refund policy?
We understand that circumstances sometimes change and you may have to cancel. Because we have numerous expenses to cover even before the retreat starts, we have the following cancellation policy:
If you cancel at least 8 weeks before the retreat, we’ll refund all but $10 of your retreat fee. We’ll refund half of the retreat fee for cancellations done 4-8 weeks prior to the retreat start date. Within the last 4 weeks, we do not do refunds.
In the unlikely event we cancel the retreat due to circumstances beyond our control (pandemic, national disaster, horribly bad weather, etc.), we will refund all but $30 of your registration fee, which can be applied to a future retreat.
