There will be no pictures of my new bikini

I'm just saying, is all.

I have actually been taking a shit ton of pictures lately, but hardly a knitting one at all.

For anyone who was worried, I did have a Valentine:

I don't know her name, but she's takin me home!
(Actually a good friend, we did Jager shots while her beau played a show. Good times.)

I have gone on a couple of date-type activities, but none that warranted any Vday activities. I am really not ready for another boyfriend. But what I AM really ready for is the CRUISE!

Here are the knitting classes I'll be taking:
* Drop spindling (ok, not knitting per se)
* Double knitting
* Knitting a mesh beach bag
* Sweater design
* Knitting a lacey capelet
* Fixing knitting mistakes
* Beaded knitting
* Knit a top down stashbuster sweater

And here are my off boat excursions:
* Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos - Horseback Ride & Swim
* Road Town, Tortola - Sea Kayaking at Peter Island
* Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Discover Scuba
* St. Thomas, U.S.V.I. - St. John Eco Hike
* San Juan, Puerto Rico - Old San Juan Historic Walking Tour

Could you just die? It sounds like everything a vacation should be... And I can hardly wait! I plan on taking a billion pics, and keeping a journal on board. I have seen some really great post-travel posts... So the bar is high, but I will do my best. In the meantime, here are some more silly shots of what I have been up to lately...

And many more. I am about to have to slow down the show-goin, since triathlon pre-training will start just after the cruise. (My liver can hardly wait.) In the meantime, I have plans to see music on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday while I can! I will try to post once more before the ship sails--once I figure out what knitting to take.

Riddle me this, Batman...

Why does my camera need a scuba suit?

Camera scuba suit

Clicky for answer....

I will be knitting and spinning ON the boat, and diving and kayaking and hiking OFF the boat. I CANNOT FREAKIN WAIT. There will even be a "yarn tasting" (!) I dunno how that works, but that's the kind of unknown I am totally down with... More details to follow if y'all wanna know them.
