The cruise on which I'm scheduled to teach knitting as part of the entertainment program leaves Miami on Sunday evening. It is oversold and there is a waiting list. Officially, I have been bumped but have been told to stand by until 2 - 3 days before the sailing as they work through the cancellations and the waiting lists. So we wait...
We've piled stuff up to take and I'm assembling the necessary knitting equipment - swift, yarn winder, darning needles, extra crochet hooks, stitch markers, knitting needles, small balls of yarn from my stash for beginners' swatches, etc. etc. Plus my own knitting that I want to take.
I am assuming that if I haven't received my cruise ticket by tonight, that we won't be getting on that ship. Thank goodness for being able to cancel our air tickets and hotel reservations without penalty.
In the meantime, I have knit a hat from the 2015 Crystal Odyssey Art at Sea Knitting collection with some lovely 'fur' yarn - Lanas Stop Koala
It has a shallow crown that is knit with lovely Karabella Aurora 8 merino yarn.
Ah, yes, first world problems. Skip and I have some ideas for Plan B. We definitely won't be sitting around twiddling our thumbs.
Happy Holidays, y'all!
