knitters weekend in ludington

calling all knitters!

Join us April 5, 6 and 7, 2019 for a relaxing weekend that combines knitting, great food, cozy accommodations here at The Lamplighter B&B, and a fun time with friends!  The talented team from Nautical Yarn is back for the Ludington Historic B&B Association's 2nd Annual Knitters Weekend, and will be leading a class on their own "Lake Michigan Waves Shawl".


Friday Evening, April 5
Meet and greet while enjoying a light dinner in the Nautical Yarn Studio.  Discover the yarn used in the pattern, the pattern design and the contents of the kit.  Cast on and begin your Lake Michigan Waves Shawl!

Saturday, April 6
Enjoy a delicious start to your day with a two-course breakfast here at The Lamplighter, then head to Nautical Yarn's studio for the start of day 2, kicking off at 9AM.  Spend the morning learning the eyelet stitches used in the shawl pattern, as well as a variety of methods to transition colors while working on your project.

After lunch, learn the 'waves' lace stitches and practice a set or two.  Then it's time for a break!  Explore Ludington and enjoy dinner on your own.  Saturday evening, knit and enjoy new-found friends at a knitting reception at one of the participating B&B's, complete with wine and desserts, gifts and other door prizes too!

Sunday, April 7
Sunday morning, learn the third lace pattern - the beautiful 'White Caps' border.  Spend time working on your project and participate in a Q&A session before wrapping up the event at Noon.
