March 23 - 29, 2017
This trip is full... please sign up for my mailing list if you want to hear about future trips with me!
Unique, distinct, mysterious, legendary - Iceland remains a well-kept travel secret and a mecca for knitters. Iceland is synonymous with knitting and wool is everywhere (even the grocery stores and gas stations). Knitting is as much a necessity in the cold dark winters as it is a labor of love. Join Laura Nelkin, knitwear designer, instructor, and passionate traveler to discover the magic that is Iceland in September. Dive deeply into Iceland's knitting tradition, its unique landscape, and experience its geothermal activity at the hot springs with Laura and a group of avid friendly knitters. This is a dream trip and I hope you'll join in!

  1. Do you remember the initial promise of Sony with regards to the PlayStation Portable? Amazing games, on the go, all the time. Right....Indeed, it does sound like amazing fun, so why is it that the flagship title that the game the machine was created for still hasn't arrived? Yes we are looking, this evening, at Gran Turismo 4 Mobile.

  3. Hi Laura - Nancy Marchant suggested I reach out to you ahead of Loch Ness Knit Fest 2018. Loch Ness Knit Fest is now in it's 3rd year. The event is designed to promote the rich crating history and heritage we have here in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. It includes 30+ workshops and presentations, main stage, crafting village, marketplace with over 60 exhibitors, 'knit and natter lounge', sightseeing tours, ceilidh and highland feast. Loch Ness Knit Fest 2017 welcomed 1552 attendees, 76.5% of which were from outside the Highlands and Islands with 28% from overseas. If this is something you might like to discuss, we would be delighted to host a group!

    1. Hello! I'd love to chat more... I'm working on an trip to Scotland now, and your event is one of our stops! I'll pm you on Facebook!
