Since I learned of the knitting tour to Iceland with Laura Nelkin coming up this September (not the one Alexa, Skip and I are going on) I've yearned to do something like this. Last time I checked, it was full.
I just learned that she is planning another one for next March 23 - 29, 2017 and it looks amazing. Here are the details from her blog. Land tour price is $2550 US (exclusive of flights). I can't tell you enough how enjoyable knitting tours are. The hotels are first-class, many meals are included, the tours are fibre-based, your fellow tourists are like-minded fibrephiles, land tours are an excellent way to explore new territories, and everything is taken care of for you.
I'm going to take a pass on this one this time for two reasons: 1. I'd rather go closer to the summer solstice or afterwards (rather than at the end of winter), and 2. Skip and I will be in the sunny south in March.
Hopefully when that day comes, one or two of my knitterly friends will want to join me?
And closer to home, Purlin J of the Roving Yarn truck has organized a one-day bus trip to Twist in Québec for Saturday, August 30. Departures are from Kingston or Brockville. It's a really good deal at $80 CAD. It's not in the cards for me this year but one of you might be interested.
