Ahoy, knitters!

I’ve just signed on to teach aboard the Zodiac, a schooner that sails out of Bellingham, Washington. This is in conjunction with Northwest Yarns of Bellingham. The 3 day cruise is July 31-August 2. It’s a nautical knitting cruise! And you get to learn to help sail the ship, too.

The trip includes 4 knitting classes. Two of them will be brioche! We’ll use my Whale Watch Cap and Cowl pattern to introduce brioche and then learn increases and decreases.

Our other two classes will explore fancy stitches and herringbone braids (and simple stranded colorwork).

Are you game? Register here!

    What fun! And what a beautiful ship!

  2. Ooh! This looks so wonderful! Sailing and tall ships and knitting… and Michele… these are some of my favorite things! I’m a little heartbroken that I’m going to be on the wrong side of the country that week. Wishing you fair winds and a following sea!

  3. Now that sounds like an adventure!

    Congratulations….it gives me such a thrill to watch you “hit the big time” with so many classes on offer.

  5. I had so much fun this past summer taking a schooner sail off the coast of Maine. No knitting classes but I did knit a bunch while on the sail.
