2nd Annual Fall Retreat
The store has been buzzing with our local customers, summer residents and other visitors to the area. It is always refreshing to meet new people and discover their passions in knitting and crocheting. Thanks so much for visiting DocKnits!
We are making great progress with our Fall Retreat and have completely filled the Chantry Bed & Breakfast. Fortunately, the Southampton Inn, across the street, has some more space for us to expand as we want to welcome some new retreat participants
The best news is that we have Anne Featonby coming to teach our Colourplay class on Saturday! Anne is a Canadian gal with a special interest in stranded colour knitting, so we are thrilled to invite her to our retreat. As a Rowan ambassador, she has had the opportunity to visit the Rowan Mill and has knit with all of the products this wonderful company has to offer. She will fill us in on her favourite wools, patterns and designers!
You can check her out a the following places:

We have firmed up the schedule for the retreat. Friday morning, Jeffi will be helping people dye their own sock yarn, while Peggy teaches others how to knit two at a time socks. Friday afternoon, Kirsten will be offering crochet lessons, while Peggy unveils her new pattern for the Southampton Sunset Shawl! We will have all day on Saturday for Anne to teach us colour strand work as we work through her version of our famous Ontario trillium pattern. We will be drawing colour inspiration from local artists at the Southampton Art Gallery....think painting with yarn!
