KnItaly 5-10.10.2022

I'll write this in english only, as it would take too long to translate to swedish and finnish... If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me at sticklager@gmail.com.

Last year I went to Italy on a knittingtrip. I had already fallen in love with this beautiful country one year earlier, this time I was totally in love. I couldn't let it go so this past fall I contacted a travel agency here in Jakobstad and asked for help.

As I don't have the rights of a travel agency, I can't do this alone. I presented them with the idea and what I want to do and they then look everything up and came back to me with the plans of a knitting retreat in Italy.

Now my plans are close to becoming a reality!

My dream sweater

Create your own sweater that fits your body shape and suits your fashon sense. Learn about top-down raglan sweater construction and proportions, and how to shape a sweater that is just right to make you feel good!

The workshop also focuses on how to adapt sweater patterns to your body and how you choose the size and ease that will work best for you.

For the class you need to bring scrap yarn and knitting needles that go with the yarn of your choosing.

In the evening we enjoy a 3 course meal with 1/4 wine.
