Knitting in the North of England!
We have rescheduled this trip for April 2020. I am ready to accept deposits!
What are we going to be up to?
You can see the itinerary HERE. Airfare is included in the pricing.
A few bits are still flexible- as all travel is- but the bones are here and Heather R usually finds ways to add more to our trips as the opportunities arise.
Registrations are limited and it is a great idea to get your deposit in early, for this trip in particular, as the early bird gets the occasional single room and other "upgrades" when the need presents itself. If you would like to guarantee a single, the up charge is $500, only a few are available.
We are often asked these questions:
1. Who will be my roommate? You can choose to travel with someone (get a friend to join us) or you will be paired with someone else traveling with us. We have 'meet-ups" before we travel to get to know one another, share information and begin to be comfortable with our group. Singles are generally available, but due to the nature of our accommodations it isn't always possible not to pair (or rarely, triple) up. That's part of the adventure!
2. Do I have to know how to knit to travel with you? Not really. It is more enjoyable for the traveler if you are interested in what we are doing. It is a fiber oriented itinerary without much opportunity to vary due to the rural and small town nature of our travel. No one should expect special considerations that do not want to participate in our itinerary. I suggest that if you are a good sport and willing to try new things you are welcome to travel with us.
3. How do I make my deposit? Make a $500 non refundable deposit check payable to "Rowan Tree Travel" and drop it off at the shop. I will collect deposits and when our trip is full, forward them to the travel company. After that, payments will be made directly to Rowan Tree Travel.
If you have other questions or need to mail your deposit, Call Kid Ewe Knot first and speak with Heather.
Is that it? Nope... Coming Soon... Denmark and the Faroe Isands in September 2020. That information should be available in July. Is it ok to go on both trips? Of Course! And it is ok to choose, too.
Pom-Pom-Palooza takes over Kid Ewe Knot as PI Day approaches!
Yes, we are a little Nerdy at Kid Ewe Knot. We love our puns, and our sci-fi and whatever else we can get a little enthusiastic about. So March 14 is an easy one to love. And we have 2 ways to celebrate circles this week.
1. Pom-pom-palooza! Come in for a $5 make-and-take. Anytime, all the time, through Sunday, March 17, 2019, we have kits with one of our FAVORITE and most awesome pom pom makers on the planet (yes, I am that serious about it) and yarn to make a few pom poms. We will show you how easy it is and you can commence pom-pomming (is that thing? now it is) every thing in sight. You can even add a pom pom to our fresh wreath for the spring. Group project!
2. Pi Day stitch markers! Erika and I have been crafty girl nerds making markers for Thursday. Ah, who didn't love shrinky-dinks when they were 9? Well, I have unleashed a monster. And Rebecca should know that this is all her fault. Crafty enabler!! Thanks. But this means we have fun little circles with various Pi references to dangle from your circular knitting if you would like one when you make a purchase on Thursday, 3.14, 2019.
I guess this is a good time to remind you about the Circle Weaving Workshop on Sunday, March 24.
Our favorite Artist/Weaver, Moon and Yarn is in shop again to show us how to make a circle weaving.
Circle Weaving Workshop
In this 3 hour class, you will learn how to make your very own circle weaving! Everyone will learn some basic weaving techniques like how to turn an embroidery hoop into a loom, tabby stitch, and soumack stitch. All materials will be provide, just remember to bring your creative side! No prior weaving experience is required. Sign up HERE! or in shop.
We have a lovely trunk show in shop for the book Within by Jane Richmond!
These pieces and more are in-shop until the 22nd of March, 2019. If, like us, you have admired this book for a long time, don't miss your chance to touch and be inspired!
March Madness in Shop!
Each week we will have an amazing and slightly mad special for you!
This week we are featuring Mykonos by Berroco Yarns. This DK weight Linen, Cotton, Nylon blend is fabulous for spring and summer knits. Check out Heather's much loved and worn Odele in shop on display.
With the purchase of yarn for the project, Kid Ewe Knot will purchase for you, from our Ravelry Pro account, either Odele or Xenia, with our compliments!
Don't worry there's more... check back! And watch for our email newsletter.
Well then. It seems that there is plenty to get used to with our new website and blog. I seem to have deleted, by accident, that which was previously posted. Darn.
Finnegan begin again.
We have so much going on in February, I don't want you to miss out on anything. So here is a list of what is coming up.
Welcome! We are very excited about our new site. I am hoping that it will be even easier to navigate and update.
Give us some feedback. Especially, if you find something broken.
If you really appreciate the new format, let me know, I want to keep doing the things that you like!
