Retreat! Retreat!

I figure it is time for another Big Announcement...

Lacy Lazy Days of Fall Retreat
September 18 - 21, 2008
Featuring Miriam Felton of MimKnits

Come join us September 18-21 at Carole's Bed and Breakfast in sunny San Diego for four days of relaxation and instruction in learning and designing knitted lace. Participants will learn the basic techniques for knitting lace, a history of lace, and have an introduction to designing your own lace projects. Celebrate autumn and take some time to relax and pamper yourself before the holidays.

Our teacher will be the lovely and talented Miriam Felton. She has designed many of our favorite shawl patterns, including the Icarus shawl, the Seraphim shawl, the Hidcote Garden Shawl, and the Juno Regina wrap. Her designs have been published in Interweave Knits and You can see more of her work on her blog at Miriam started playing with fiber, yarn and thread as soon as she could hold a needle. Ten years ago, she began knitting. Designing knitwear followed soon after. While many of her designs focus on lace patterns, all of her work features textural details, and exploring positive and negative space with the use of knitted stitches to create lyrical and strikingly visual patterns. Miriam has had designs published in Interweave Press magazines and books, the on-line Knitty magazine, the book Sensual Knits, as well as self-publishing patterns via her website at When not knitting, Miriam can be found frequenting various Salt Lake City coffee shops and bookstores while wearing her tiara.
