Knitting by the Sea with Anny Blatt
October 26-29, 2018
During our retreat we will focus on one Anny Blatt knitting project. Two gifted teachers will guide you through the techniques required to complete the “Harvey’” jacket from Anny Blatt’s most recent couture collection no. 225.
The Inn by the Sea is located just 12.5 miles from Portland Maine’s International Jetport and 115 miles from Boston’s Logan Airport. The area is known for its famous Two Lights lighthouses, its pristine undeveloped beaches, bird sanctuary, spectacular ocean views, family farms and the unparalleled hospitality at Inn by the Sea.
We will be offering the choice of the newly constructed “Cove Suites” or “Traditional Guest Rooms.” The “Cove Suites” offer a master bedroom with a king bed and a second bedroom with two queen beds. The elegant bath is customized with two marble top sinks, oversized bathtub, and separate shower. In addition there is a sitting area with fireplace, dining area which accommodates 4 persons, and a private outdoor deck.
The “Traditional Guest Rooms” are single rooms with king size bed and oversized bathroom with glass walk-in shower. There are no bathtubs in traditional rooms.
All guests have access to the cardiovascular and fitness center.
