re·treat /rəˈtrēt/ noun - a quiet or secluded place in which one can rest and relax….and knit!
Our 2019 Casowasco retreat will be held Oct 24 thru Oct 27, 2019. It is the 10th year that Silver Needles MK Club is hosting a "knit in" at Casowasco camp on Owasco Lake, not far from Moravia.
There is no formal teacher scheduled for this event. We all knit what we want and help each other where it is needed. Everyone brings their own yarn and projects and sometimes you end up knitting something else altogether. Knit all day & night, to your heart's content! We are able to set up our machines in a large room, any time after 9 am on Thursday morning, and not move them until it is time to go home on Sunday afternoon.
Often yarn is brought and made available to purchase, and glass buttons, and jewelry, and knitting machine parts….
Our meals are served in the same building as our knitting room. Our lodging is in the Galilee House across the courtyard which is an amazing architectural beauty on the shore of Owasco Lake. Price for the weekend includes sleeping arrangements, bedding, towel and meals. Some of the rooms have several beds including a few bunk beds.
Time knitting is always precious. Time away with fellow knitters is rare and delightful indeed. We have formed a joyful group of fellowship and support. The retreat is restricted to the first 28 people to sign up.
