MSC Sinfonia – Day 19 – At Sea

7 Dec 2007 – MSC Sinfonia – Day 19 – At Sea

Other than a blinding headache which hit after sunrise, this was a perfect day. Providing that you want to be up at the crack of dawn to watch the sun crawl above the horizon, reflecting on the water and lighting up the clouds.



With a day at sea, I had no place to go and nothing to do. I.E. I slept!

That and played a couple of computer games during those times I could keep.


Nothing, no knitting! But I now have all the pieces for Mein Weg and just have to cut the steeks, sew it together and finish off the front and neck as soon as I get home.

Looks through the MP3 player and the list on my external hard drive – settled on

Yesterday, while leaving Rio, there is this amazing bridge carrying traffic across the bay. Overwatching the island, it speeds by the older buildings leaving them carefully mired it ferry support

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!

    Holly, is there a sleeve not attached that is missing in this photo? I haven’t puzzled out the knitting pattern yet (it takes me a while, but I usually eventually get there), but I can’t make the schematic match your picture. Steek between the two front pieces still would have 4 pieces (instead of the 5 in the pattern.) It is always possible that I’m missing a very important step.
