3 Maine Cruises for Passionate Knitters That Will Help You Have Fun This Summer

If you love cruising adventures and knitting with the same intensity, why not have both? The following Maine knitting cruises are the perfect opportunity for you to mix your two favorite pastimes in one great holiday.

Knitting Getaway (June 8-11)

Have you ever wondered how yarn comes into being from the wool harvested from sheep? This exciting getaway will teach you everything about the process from sheep shearing, to spinning, and finally to knitting. Participants will have the chance to use their own handspun yarn to create their favorite knitted pieces.

The adventure will start on land, at the Bittersweet Heritage Farm, where a demonstration on sheep shearing and skirting will take place. Participants can use the remaining time until embarking on the boat Riggin to make last minute shopping or visit the local lighthouse.

On the boat, everyone will learn how to spin their own fiber and assistance will be provided. The obtained yarn will be used for various projects.

Knitting Vacation (June 24-27)

Embark on an all inclusive sailing and knitting adventure with Bill Huntington, a reputable knitting guru from Hope Spinnery. The project the knitting cruise participants will get involved in will be knitting a hat.

Bill Huntington will offer those on board his patterns and yarns forĀ a fee. Participants are encouraged to bring their own yarns or any knitting projects that they have in progress. They are also invited to contribute with new ideas.

Knitting Cruise (September 5-10)

Color knitting is the theme of this 6 day/6 night cruise with Margaret Radcliffe. All the lessons are focused on individual skills, so you should not shy away from this opportunity in case you have little to no idea about color knitting.

New techniques will be taught by Margaret, a passionate knitter with over 50 years of knitting under her belt. Author of the book The Essential Guide to Color Knitting Techniques, Margaret will let you in all her secrets.
