Knitting cruise
Has anyone ever gone on a knitting cruise? I saw one advertised for June 9th to Scandanavia, I think. You visit wool factories too...
I am retiring from teaching on June 8th. Am thinking of rewarding myself with the cruise...hmmmm...Cast away...or cast on???

I'd love to go on one of those someday. Just float, knit and eat. Sounds ideal to me!

Sounds like fun...and a great way to reward yourself on a job well done! (I'm a teacher too!)

While normally the idea of a cruise does zilch for me, the idea of a knitting cruise does appeal. Just knitting with other knitters, no deadlines, no meals to cook, house to clean, people to see, etc.- what could be more fun!

While I've never been on a cruise, it's my understanding that they have a lot of casinos on board. Ya think they'e cover up all the crap tables with skeins of yarn? Omigod, that would be heaven. 7 days of nothing but knitting and fondling wool. They wouldn't even have to leave the harbor as far as I'm concerned.

Knitting Cruise
I am going on a cruise at the end of january and although it is not a "Knitting Cruise", It will be for me. I can't seem to leave my project for over a week without doing some knitting on it.

I will proudly KIP for all of the KH'ers who want to go on a cruise.
