About Knit+Escape



We craft experiences

Created by Kristy Glass and Eve Ashworth, Knit+Escape presents exciting, inclusive events – live, in- person and now, virtually.  We had planned our first in-person retreat in the Catskills – now rescheduled for 2021 – when COVID-19 happened to change our plans. 

And for the moment, we’ve gone virtual!  –

When the days are short and we need something fun to entertain ourselves, Knit+Escape’s online extravaganzas will give you free demos, in-depth classes from a fabulous flock of Indie Dyers, Passionate Knitters, Crafty Crocheters, Fabulous Fiberites, Brilliant Bag Makers, Spectacular Spinners, and much more! You’ll be inspired, engaged and having fun.

Kristy Glass has a huge Instagram following and is an inspiration to those who knit, crochet, make and create. Eve Ashworth is the co-owner and CEO of Ashworth Creative, a brander and a knitter/maker.

Our Mission:

Knit + Escape was crafted with true purpose. Kristy Glass and Eve Ashworth saw a need in the knitting world for a diverse, inclusive, and FUN community dedicated to bringing knitters, crocheters, and designers together from all walks of life, regardless of skill level. Our mission is to continue cultivating this space for YOU, ensuring that it remains open and welcoming for every community member with virtual and in-person events, giveaways, and a tremendous array of completely original content.

“Sometimes we don’t realize the power we hold in our own two hands” – Kristy Glass
