Interweave Escapes is a unique way for knitters to come together, learn from a knitting expert and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow devotees in this intimate, retreat-style event.

On October 27-30, 2017 Interweave Escapes is traveling to the secluded Galiano Island in British Columbia to enjoy a exclusive and rare opportunity: We will be staying at the stunning Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa for a one-of-a kind, all inclusive knitting getaway. There will be two workshops from designer, author and teacher Kyle Kunnecke, delicious gourmet meals, and ferry tickets are included. Plus, you’ll be joined by Interweave KnitsEditor, Meghan Babin. Join us for an amazing weekend amid the beauty of Galiano Island, October 27-30, 2017.

Spots are going fast and the deadline to sign up is September 25, 2017!

Take two three-hour knitting workshops from Kyle Kunnecke including:

  • Stranded Knitting: Unlocking the Secret of Locked Floats: Ever looked at the "wrong side" of a stranded, hand-knit garment and see no floats? Do you wonder what was done to hide those floats and make it so beautifully finished? The answer may very well be what some refer to as "Armenian Knitting", or what I call "Locked Floats." The technique is simple, and creates a wonderfully even fabric. In this class, we will first review how to carry floats across the back of the work (traditional), and then learn this simple technique that results in a beautifully woven "wrong side". We will address increasing and decreasing "in pattern", and cover tricks that help to make projects look more polished. You'll leave with a good understanding of how to work this technique, along with a series of swatches you'll be able to use for future reference.
  • "You want me to do WHAT to my knitting?!" - an Introduction to Steeks:Cutting our knitting may seem like the stuff of nightmares, but in a controlled environment following a few simple steps; it’s a tool that makes stranded knitting a dream. In this workshop we will face our fears while learning to master the skills required to steek knitted fabric, and explore the steps necessary to create a beautifully finished edge. Once we have learned a few ways to divide the fabric, we will continue our adventure by learning how to install a zipper by hand.
