Knitting Cruise – Creativity, Outdoor Travel, Learning – What more could a woman wish for?

Our knitting cruise on the J. & E. Riggin, taught this year by Bill Huntington, is from June 9-11, 2011.  Bill owns Hope Spinnery yarns and is a knitting wizard.  Last year when I boarded the boat after getting the girls off to school, Bill was surrounded by rosy-cheeked, vibrant women, all clamoring at once to tell me what they’d learned or show me what they’d knit.  A happier group I’ve yet to see – loud belly laughs and hands moving furiously were what occupied the galley after dinner that night.

Join us and share in the fun as we sail, knit and eat our way along the Maine Coast!  It’s the only trip in June that still has space and from now until June 1st we are offering a Buy One, Get One Half Off Special.  Call 800-869-0604 for more details.

If you can’t make this trip maybe our Sept. 5-10 knitting cruise with Maggie Radcliffe fits your schedule.

Hope we get to sail with you this summer

Bamboo Yarn – Great Sock Pattern

My first pair of socks – that are actually both the same size – knit this summer on the Riggin in between stirring stew and rolling pie dough.  The bamboo yarn is yummy on my toesies and was really easy to work with.  My only question is should I have used thread to reinforce the heal.  I guess time will tell as I pad around the house in them this winter.  Dang those needles were small.

I know Maggie and Bill (our knitting cruise instructors) would be proud.
