Cruising Crafts Part 1 - Knitting

I hope you enjoyed looking at the holiday snaps in the last post!  Norway really was amazing!!!  If you’ve read my profile, you’ll know that I’m a cruise addict!  One of the reasons for my love of cruising is ALL the time it offers for relaxing – and CRAFTING!!!  Another reason, of course, is that I LOVE getting dressed up in my posh frocks!!!
This cruise, my crafty focus was on knitting.  Despite the fact that we were in Norway, we DID have a few days of beautiful weather.  And I discovered knitting in public – on deck!!!  I got a few strange looks from fellow passengers, but I didn’t let that put me off.  I saw one lady knitting during an evening show, but I didn’t dare try that!  I don’t think I’m up to knitting in the dark yet - there could have been a very nasty accident!!! 
Here I am, enjoying my knitting and the lovely sunshine:

By the end of the cruise, I had managed to finish 6 squares – yay!!!  I experimented with different kinds of stitches.  Some went better than others, as you can see:

After 6, I got bored with squares, and decided to move on to a different project.  I don’t think I have enough to make anything with yet – unless anyone can suggest anything??? 
So, I started working on a scarf.  I’m STILL working on the scarf (some weeks later), as you can see:

Maybe, at this rate, I’ll be able to give it to someone for Christmas (next year).....
In my next post, I’ll tell you about my other cruising craft.....  see you then!
