Travelling Yarns at Goodnestone Park, UK October 18-25, 2022

Join us at Goodnestone Park, a magnificent early 18th century privately-owned stately home in Kent and former seat of the Fitzwalter family.

The 8 night/9 day knitting retreat is led by Cocoknits founder Julie Weisenberger and expert knitter Tracy Russell.  Knitters of all levels are welcome to join the week, including beginner, to learn the top down seamless knitting method pioneered by Cocoknits.

The retreat begins and ends in historic Richmond-upon-Thames located in south west London and close by Heathrow airport.   On the first day we head to Hampshire to Little Grey Sheep, a small farm producing world class yarns.  

Instruction begins at Goodnestone where amid the splendour of beautiful rooms adorned with family portraits, crystal chandeliers and carefully chosen antiques, you’ll settle on comfortable sofas and chaises longues. 

The excursions planned during the week include a trip to Rye, a visit to the cathedral city of Canterbury, and one to a sheep rescue centre.

You’ll leave at the end of the week, well rested, well fed and with a perfectly-fitting knit, a new set of skills as well as a new circle of friends.
