Bad Eunny Rising

I wasn't aware that Famous Internet Knitter (and the new Face of Interweave Knits) Eunny Jang would be a part of the sock cruise. She helped out during the technique workshops, and gave 2 talks on sock anatomy/design. I really like her; she's very easygoing and lots of fun. I also love the fact that she admits to doing geeky things like calculating the ratio of stitches: rows for common stitch patterns. And who knew that in addition to Eunny's fibre prowess, she also has an encyclopedic knowledge of hits of the 60's, 70's, and 80's?

Yep, one of the highlights of the sock knitting cruise was sitting in the piano bar on the last evening with Michelle, Rosalie, and Eunny, singing. The pianist (who called us "The Sockettes") was probably thrilled that someone was actually listening to him, let alone making requests.


We did a CCR duet...

And then tried to find somewhere on the ship that we could dance to ABBA tunes...sadly, there was no DJ in sight in the otherwise empty disco.

More photos Friday - I now have to pack (again) to head back to Toronto. This time we are taking the cats with us, so we need to figure out how much of their stuff we should try to fit into a suitcase. Plus I have to figure out what needles and yarn will head East with me.

This sounds like some serious fun. If they ever do this again, I am so going. Though you don't want to hear me do karaoke.

Alright then--I figured she was a cool person. But I can't figure out the allure of the calculation of ratio of stitches. But then again I don't dig calculation of (insert any noun here!)

Looks like a fun time!

That looks like so much fun! For some reason when you were talking about the sock cruise I just thought you were going on a cruise...and knitting socks. Not that it was an organized knitting event!!! Sometimes I'm just slow like that.
