What an incredible weekend for our 1st annual Knitting Boutique Retreat at the Kent Manor Inn on Kent Island. Almost 50 participants joined in for a weekend of good food, fun and fellowship. The theme of the weekend was “All Things Colorwork.” Below are photos from our week-end. If you’re interested in joining us next year at the “2014 Knitting Boutique Retreat: All Things Finishing,” save your space now by calling us or by registering on line.

Come and join us every Wednesday night for “Boutique Game Night.” We’ll be playing games like “Boutique Bingo,” “Password,” “Stare” and of course “Pass the Bomb.” (If you haven’t played it, it’s a BLAST!) No charge, just come in and join us. The fun starts at 5:00 pm. AND, the customer who has won the most games by the end of the evening, gets a discount on his or her purchases! See you at the Boutique!
Below are some great photos of our customers and their projects at The Knitting Boutique! Come and join us for Sit and Stitch night on Thursday or Fridays.

As part of The Knitting Boutique’s Famous Knitter Workshop series, Tanis Gray held a class yesterday teaching from her Capitol Knits book. Students learned about techniques and sizing for her Lincoln Cardi. One student shared, “Just have to say I had another good class today. I really appreciated the method that the class was taught. You know I am a big fan of hand outs and subject matter knowledge and Tanis had both.” Thanks Tanis for visiting. We look forward to your next visit!
Join us for our first Famous Knitter Saturday of 2013 when Tanis Gray joins us on Saturday, January 12 beginning at 10:00 am. We’ll begin knitting the Lincoln Cardi, a design from Tanis’ Capitol Knits book. Registration is $50. You can also join us for lunch. See you at the Boutique!
