Summer Adventure Part 1- Cruise to the Bahamas

What a summer it has been! Full of amazing of travels, yarn and fiber! HUGE Adventures around every corner. First I was in Copenhagen and Holland, and then only 3 weeks later, Vithard and I taught a cruise to the Bahamas!

We drove to Charleston SC (with a stop at the ever creepy South of the Border.. had to show Vithard- you can’t really explain the epic awesome fail of it over skype)  We arrived at the port, and boarded our Fantasy Fiber Cruise, hosted by Friends and Fiberworks.  We were teaching on what was a 5 night, 4 day trip, with stops in Nassau and Freeport.  Even better, some good friends joined us on the boat, so we knew we were in for a good time.

What can I say that photos can’t..    We knit everywhere.
