Knitting Retreat in the
July 11-16, 2018
This retreat is designed for knitters who enjoy a more relaxed pace on their holidays, with plenty of time to get to know an area. After our first night in Glasgow, we will be traveling to the Scottish Borders where we will spend five nights at Sir Walter Scott’s Baronial Manor Home, Abbotsford. From there, we will make short excursions into the surrounding countryside, visiting other stately homes, castles and romantic abbey ruins. The Borders has always been a textile hub of Scotland with mills churning out everything from tartan and hosiery to, more recently, Alpaca yarn! We will have a knitting workshop with designers from Eribé, one of Europe’s largest hand-knitting companies, and, since we will be staying in the historic home of Scotland’s most famous author, we also enjoy an evening of storytelling!
