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 – sunshine, companionship, and fun – plus classes from myself and lace designer Anna Dalvi.
The entire experience was a delight.

Really, what more could a girl want?
Knitting socks, but not wearing them.
