So this morning I was reading through my email as usual with a cuppa joe when I spied the ever-dangerous one from my travel agent. My eyes popped out of my head when I saw an eastbound transatlantic sailing in less than three weeks on one my favorite ships going for peanuts. A chill ran through me when I saw the arrival port: Harwich, England. Shoot, I already have a return air ticket from London that I haven't used and will expire if I don't.
What to do?
Call the woman, of course, and book it FAST!
So I did. And I'm on it! It was meant to be.
Here's the skinny:

I'll post pictures when I return.
<--- Our fantastic aft cabin on the same ship during last September's westbound transatlantic. The glass screen divides our main bedroom from a 2nd sitting room/bedroom (Claire's), which leads to a huge balcony out back.
Our aft balcony. Fabulous! Docked at the time in St. John, Newfoundland. --------->
On the knitting front: I am almost finished knitting the body of my Mr. Greenjeans cardie. I think two more complete cables will do it. Then it's onto the sleeves and the button band and it's finished.
My SOTSii got far behind the weekly schedule, and I am currently working my way through Hint 8 --- only about 80 or so rows to go to total completion! Whew! There will be another SOTS in August, and I think I'll do that one, too.
March 26 is the start of the MysticLight shawl KAL, and I signed up for that. I have a cone of Jaggerspun Maine Line fingering weight for this.
The Malabrigo Junkies board on Ravelry is winding up Malabrigo March Madness. I started the Mr. Greenjeans cardie in Silky Merino. And I've finished the Herringbone Mittens in Vaa and Frank Ochre Merino Worsted, a Tudora neck ruff and a Capitan hat in Amoroso, and will cast on a few more small projects before March is over.
