Hell's Half Acre - Maine

Come Along - and Knit!

Our 2020 events are nearly all full - but there's still time to get a spot in some of them, or to sign up for our new addition, a Summer Intensive Workshop in July.

Have a look at our list of "last chances" that might fit your schedule, and some information about the new Workshop. Hope to see YOU sometime in 2020!


Marilee Scarf

Learn Brioche Knitting

Our March 6-8 Weekend Retreat at Blue Mountain Retreat Center in Knoxville, MD. will feature the Marilee Scarf pattern designed by Miranda Jollie. We'll be knitting this cozy, 2-color scarf and learning all the tips and tricks of brioche stitch.

Why not plan to join us - sit by the cozy fire, admire the views, take a walk or nap, or perhaps get a massage (Beth, the owner of Blue Mountain, is a certified massage therapist), and of course, knit!

Cost of the weekend: $360

Scotland/Shetland September 2020

This tour has been sold out for months, but we have unexpectedly had a cancellation. There is now a space for just one more guest (sharing a room). Cost of the trip is $3995. Want to talk about the particulars of the trip? Please give Jean a call at Celtic Journeys and she can tell you all about it! Click here for details.


The Schooner J&E Riggin

Maine, 2020

Once again, we'll set off with Casapinka aboard the Schooner J&E Riggin for 4 days sailing around Penobscot Bay - knitting, eating great food and making new friends while we take in the fabulous scenery. Enjoy this truly unique "knitting get-away" and immerse yourself in a Maine Experience!

This will be our last year for Knitting Cruises, so don't miss your chance to share a Knitting Adventure with Casapinka! Our final sailing will be September 21-24, 2020.



Learn Fair Isle Knitting


By popular demand, we will be offering our very first Summer Intensive Workshop, July 27-29. This 3-day, 2 night retreat will be all about stranded (or Fair Isle) knitting. Arriving on Monday morning and departing on Wednesday afternoon will allow for 3 full days of instruction, without sacrificing a summer family weekend!

The cost of this workshop is just $275. See all the details here.

Interested in another Summer Workshop? Let us know! Fill out the survey and give us your ideas - we can offer 3-day intensive workshops at Blue Mountain Retreat Center in the summer (mid-week) for much less than our standard weekend retreats. YOUR ideas will guide our choices, so please participate.
