Time for our next knitting adventure... this cruise is pretty incredible as all the ports are what I would consider to be KNITTING destinations! I've taken advantage of that by creating some exclusive tours for us in Bergen, Reykjavik and Shetland (and I have an idea for Edinburgh that I'm working on!)!

We have a room reserved for us on the ship for our famous nightly knit nights... activities planned for our days at sea with no extra charge! I have some ideas that I think you will all ADORE!!!

I am also designing something super special for the trip (something that evokes Norway, Iceland and Shetland knitting traditions?). Yarn will be included in your goodie bag and the piece will be revealed our first day on the ship! We'll have a class that focuses on the skills used in the new design on the first day and then I'll be available to get you going and help with any knitting questions throughout the trip. We have arranged group dinners on board, so no one will eat alone!
