2019 Newport Knitting Retreat
We are excited to announce the 2019
Newport Knitting Retreat
Hosted by The Mermaid’s Purl
How tremendous does 3 days of knitting, learning, sharing stories, enjoying great food and relaxing sound?
We invite you to the historical Viking Hotel for the weekend of March 22-24, 2019
Situated atop Newport’s Historic Hill, Hotel Viking is a luxury hotel that offers cozy guestrooms, award winning dining, a walkable location, and a gorgeous Spa.
This year we are joined by Simone Kereit of OwlCat Designs.
Simone’s designs span the spectrum of inspiration with cowls, sweaters and shawls – all made with beautiful yarns, interesting techniques and careful instruction. Her fun personality shines through in her playful designs.
“I grew up in Switzerland and have been knitting most of my life, and I have been designing, for just about as long. My formal education in languages and arts has given me the perfect background to write clear patterns while giving an edge and creative uniqueness to my designs which range from traditional to eclectic. My inspiration tends to come from nature and the natural world around us.”
For a full library of Simone’s patterns, check out her Ravelry page!
There are two all inclusive retreat packages available.

$725 for a single room.
