Special Episode: Sheep to Shawl Knitting Retreat in Stowe Vermont Recap

This episode is all about the NEK Retreats knitting retreat that Sandy and I participated in with instructors Anne Berk and Donna Druchunas. It was a fantastic workshop/retreat where we learned new methods for intarsia knitting which included knitting intarsia in the round and stranded knitting. It was fun and informational and took place in the beautiful Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe Vermont
