And you can come too!
April 25 – May 1 will find me winging my way to Argentina with Behind the Scenes Adventures.
Highlights of the trip will include fantastic BA – Buenos Aries, a gorgeous city of architecture, art, parks, street markets, tango and even a YARN DISTRICT! It will be fall time, so we’ll still be itching for yarn! With Joji we’ll take a ferry across the the Rio Plata to Montevideo, the capitol of Uruguay where we’ll visit the dye studio and factory shop of Malabrigo! Swoon! Montevideo is also home to 3 of Manos del Uruguay‘s retail shops where they sell finished goods as well as yarn. In the countryside we’ll journey to a Manos cooperative.
Colonia de Sacrameto has been on my bucket list for a long time, and it will be our final stop in Uruguay. The historic quarter, where we’ll be staying is a Unesco World Heritage Site. We’ll have a leisurely couple of days to enjoy the quaint tranquil streets and enjoy some knitting in one of the lovely cafes.
Back across the river in Argentina we’ll travel to an estansia, a traditional ranch, though hardly rustic, where we’ll relax in the pastoral surroundings. Joji will treat us to a trunk show and also knit with us – sharing a pattern she’s designed just for our group. She’s also persuaded her good friend and indy dyer Ale, to lead a dying workshop for us.
The trip will wind down back in Buenos Aries with a farewell dinner and Tango show!
Care to join us?
Joji, me and her mom!
