MSC Sinfonia – Day 12 – At Sea

Day 12 – At Sea

Day four of the six it is taking to cross the Atlantic.

The only time it is possible to exercise is before 0600 in the morning as later the upper area is obstructed with either people ambling along at the slowest pace imaginable or filled with deck chairs draped with people in a variety of bathing attire.

I am now humbly of the opinion that the opportunity to wear speedos needs to be regulated. Just like string bikinis and thong bottoms, an upper weight limit would be really nice. (And I would definitely place it well below 150 kg).

I decided to pull out the yarn for Mein Weg.

Mein Weg

Since I wanted the sleeves to match (and know better this time than to attempt to start in exactly the same location for the second sleeve) – I knit the pair flat with a six stitch steek section in between. The pattern is deceptively simple – two rows of contrast colour in stockinette alternates with six rows of reverse stockinette in the main colour.

There is little for arches that I can find interesting here on the ship, so Lisbon will have to suffice.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
