So a couple weeks ago, I read about an upcoming Knitting Cruise around the Thimble Islands. I thought that sounds like a lot of fun, so I booked a spot...
On Tuesday night I headed down to Branford, but first I stopped at a favorite yarn shop, Madison Wool. It was great to see Dayna again. Plus she has been posting lots of goodies on her Facebook page, so I knew there would be tons of gorgeous goodies...and I was not wrong.
Spun Monkey in Pollinator...these will become some fun bee socks!
Rhino Fluff in Deep Sea...look at that blue!
Gradient, which is a slightly felted yarn. I think I'm going to make their free cowl with it...and yeah it's a crochet pattern!
I also bought a pattern and a fun butterfly button....but what about the cruise you ask? I had met Gale a couple years ago at Rhinebeck....I knew no one else on the cruise, but I left having made several new friends!
Gale has also posted some pictures on her blog...
