Prepare to board the Holland America Oosterdam, as we set sail on A DREAM CRUISE from Buenos Aires, Argentina around the southern tip of South America to Santiago Chile.

Can you hear our needles clicking in sync with the ocean? Do you feel your fingers itching to knit up a storm while we cruise through the Beadle Channel, along Cape Horn, and amidst the Chilean Fjords? Well, folks, this is the knitting cruise we've been waiting for! I’ve never been to South America, and I want to go with you! I'm particularly excited for The Falkland Islands and Lola wants to tango with you in Buenos Aires!

March is an excellent time to explore these lands. The days are long, the sun warm, and the weather at home is not all that! 

But this cruise isn’t just about knitting – it's about exploring too! Penguins, sheep, birds, glaciers, fjords OH MY!

I’m cooking up a special concept for this trip… I’ll be designing a project for the cruise AND so will you! Classes on this cruise will incorporate knitting techniques along with creativity workshops and DESIGN skills. By the end of the two weeks, you will have your OWN memorable knit design on your needles. This cruise allows for us to do plenty of time to do design exploration. I am very excited to take a design journey with YOU as we travel around the tip of South America together.
