We've had a blast on the 2012 Knitting Tour, and are now pleased to invite you to join us on our second year of the Miss Babs Knitting Tour! We don't want to give away too much, so all we will say at present is that we will again visit 4 locations. This year there are 2 islands, 3 cities, and 2 continents, mostly in the Northern Hemisphere. We will travel in March, June, September, and December, giving you plenty of time to explore (and knit in!) each stop.
This past year we visited the Seychelles, where we knit a beautiful shawl by Susanna IC,
the Yorkshire Moors where we indulged in a cozy shawl by Romi,
the Sierra Nevada Mountains where Cecily Glowik MacDonald provided us with a clever pattern for mitts and a cowl,
and we will celebrate the New Year in Berlin, with one of Martina Behm's signature shawls.
Again we are blessed with amazing designers: Kitman Figueora, Franklin Habit, SpillyJane, and Stephanie of Verybusymonkey! The projects will again be suited for all knitters, and are again designed to allow you to grow your knitting skills within the supportive environment of our Ravelry group. We have a tour guide on Ravelry, SarahBess, who is available for location or knitting questions! This year there will be more variety in terms of projects, but we are sure you will love them all!
The Miss Babs Ticket Window will open January 1, 2013. Please check this page to sign up! We will again offer an installment option. If you choose this option, your second payment will be due in late Februray. This year, we are also offering an exclusive Miss Babs Knitting Tour Project Bag with custom fabric, made by Yarn Pop! This is an add-on, since we wanted to give people who may not need another bag the option to sign up without purchasing it.

Domstic Ticket, Single Payment-- $240
Domestic Ticket, Installment Option-- $125 each
Canadian Ticket, Single Payment-- $250
