Greece:
An Ionian Knitting Odyssey

May 22 - Jun 1, 2024

Join us for a floating knitting retreat in the Ionian Islands of Greece! We will enjoy the adventure of life aboard The Aegeotissa II - a 12 cabin boat which looks like a pirate ship! With 7 days to enjoy 5 spectacular locations in the Ionian Sea, you will have plenty of time to swim, nap, knit, nap, eat and explore! Fabulous food is served for both breakfast and lunch on board the boat as well as in the many tavernas you will have to choose from in port. Our normal days will be spent motoring to a new location in the mornings after breakfast, a swim stop at an enticing and remote beach while lunch is prepared, and then a short journey to port where you can disembark and explore. We will have a visit with ladies from a textile association on Kefalonia who are preserving the textile traditions of the island, and a farm visit to learn how to cook the traditional meat or vegetable pie of the area and perhaps to learn how to dance? Of course we will have an easy knit-along shawl project designed by local designer, Maria Zilaku with Treliz! Yarn and a chance to pick out your own skein from her bold and colorful collection while we are in Athens.
