Bon Voyage!! -Gathering yarn for my trip

The day has finally come!  We leave tonight to start our 30th anniversary cruise:). Yea! Yea!  We will be traveling to the Jewels of the Aegean on the Oceania Riviera.   Well,  that really means we’re going to Greece and Israel!!    Can you tell that I am excited? 

Oceania has been so nice to work with so far. They sent us a very nice itinerary booklet with our names printed on it.  It is very customized to us.  We feel pampered already!

This is a 5 1/2 star ship that is geared to food lovers like myself.  I really am a foodie so I am excited to see what makes this ship known for its dining.

I of course am gathering my travel projects.  I would never let 19 hours on a plane go without some handwork.  You get me, right?  We crocheter/quilters are a keep your hands busy breed!

I figure that now is the time to start (and hopefully catch up) on my peacock bag.  Aren’t the colors pretty?  They are the originals from the CAL.  I love my little starfish stitch markers.  They match so well!  

I ordered this beautiful yarn cutter to wear as a necklace in the plane.  I didn’t even know they made these until one of you fantastic bloggers blogged about it.  I wish I could remember who, but I can’t so to all of you,  Thx!  

I also ordered this fantastic camel hair yarn with thoughts of the Middle East. 

It is really soft and pretty, but still kind of smells like a camel, lol:)!  I wound these hanks up into two lovely cakes of yarn that I am also going to bring just in case I finish the peacock bag.  It doesn’t look that hard…..

I plan on buying Israeli and Greek yarn and fabric to bring home as my souvenirs.  Won’t that be fun?

Soooo… I am off to start packing!

  1. I hope you have a wonderful time! I can relate; I know I wouldn’t be able to make it through a flight that long without yarn!
