north to Alaska

We won’t be seeking gold. Instead we’ll find a wealth of natural imagery and shared experiences with new-found knitting friends.

The Vogue Knitting cruise to Alaska departs from Vancouver in a little under a year. I join Cat Bordhi and an editor from Vogue Knitting to serve up some knitting techniques to inspire you.

If you know Cat, you already know she’ll have your inquisitive minds working in concert with your hands, sticks, and favorite yarns on her latest innovation. I’d also like you to try something that may offer you a new way to add color to your knitting. A cruise like this will provide a perfect opportunity to explore your knitting at your leisure.

This is Cat’s first knitting cruise, and my second. So I can tell you first-hand that Holland America takes great care of you aboard. Great ship, great staff, great food.

Follow this link to learn the details. Spend a little time exploring the Holland America site to learn of the shore excursions you could opt to add to your cruise- kayaking, sled-dog rides, hikes, salmon bakes, and fishing.

The highlight of this tour will be the natural beauty around us.  I’ll leave you with a few memories from my first visit to Alaska. These are pictures from the decks and from shore excursions. I can’t wait to spend time with you, Cat, and our hosts at Vogue Knitting.
