A Year In The Making

Beautiful Petal
Our knitters had a wonderful 3-day retreat in June with a few staying over longer to continue enjoying the relaxing atmosphere of the Resort. They worked hard at the retreat – absorbing new knitting and dyeing techniques taught by their energetic and captivating teachers, mastering new cooking skills with Chef Dan and his team. They visited local Finnriver Farm each day, the source of The Fireside’s freshly laid eggs, tasting boutique apple ciders, preparing dinners for the group, and ending their days feasting on their bounty along with paired wine flights.

As tradition would have it, the knitters found the extra energy to “yarn bomb” the Inn during their stay.  One piece of knitted art had been in the planning process for several months. We call it A Year in the Making – not to be missed!  This beautiful piece surrounds our staircase light fixture … how did they install it with no ladders, no scaffolding?  It’s a mystery, a secret taken away by the knitters, never to be shared, yet this beautiful piece of art will remain to be enjoyed for years to come.  

A Year In The Making
This retreat’s site specific art installation is now available for public viewing –stop by the Inn at The Resort at Port Ludlow during the month of July to enjoy the knitting artists’ work. We have shared pictures of a few pieces here if you are unable to make it before July 31st.
How Did They Get Up There?!
