A couple of weeks ago, I had the very distinct pleasure of going on a Caribbean cruise. Given the winter we’ve had, it was just the ticket – to see the sun, to feel the warmth on my skin, and to be able to go without socks (and a hat, and mittens, and a scarf, and a parka) was a pleasure.

Making it even more fun was the fact that it was a knitting cruise!

Well, for clarity, a group of knitters gathered on a 3000-person cruise on the Celebrity Reflection as it (she?) toured around the Eastern Caribbean.

Organized by Linda Sokalski, herself an avid knitter and teacher, the trip included all the usual delights of a winter cruise Рsunshine, companionship, and fun Рplus classes from myself and lace designer Anna Dalvi.

The entire experience was a delight.


Linda, Anna and two of our students. Look at the color of the water!

Really, what more could a girl want?

    I absolutely love that idea! I’m not a cruise person myself, but I knitting camping trip might be just the thing I need.

    I go cruising whenever I can and knit on them every time! Meeting other knitters while cruising is so much fun!

  3. What a dream vacation! Jealous. You can literally knit your way around the world (or the Caribbean.)

    The cruise was wonderful and I learned so much. I’m using some of Anna’s designs in a pair of socks and I’m trying cuff down again. Looking forward to the finished product. Then back to my entrelac scarf! Thank you for a wonderful time.
