Knitting All Over

Knit ahoy!

This is myself and my good friend Stephanie Carroll. We made the transatlantic crossing on the Queen Mary 2, on a knitting cruise that Barry Klein of Trendsetter Yarns was teaching. We were very excited to be sailing on the Oueen Mary 2 to England, but I think we were more excited that we were going to be getting the newest issue of Simply Knitting before we could get it here in America!

We'd love to see more pictures of you with A simply Knitting (or even just your knitting!) inforeigrt lands. Don't forget, the sender of every letter will receive a brilliant mini knitting kit from Coats Crafts UK.
