After a day spent knitting in which Dani’s scarf is more than finished –
the yarn is a sock weight merino. If I tackle this one again, I will definitely cast on with a larger needle…. the basic pattern is Song Thrush and starts at maximum number of stitches (somewhere close to 300 and then decreases).
and I completed the body of the C&C
before taking a deep breath and tackling the ruffle which turns out to have a bijillion stitches and takes a lifetime to knit even a single row. Let me not mention that purling back takes even longer and the needle I have is only long enough to tackle one color at a time….
Anyway – there is also Stromboli which in this case does not refer to the ice cream but to the active volcano.
Viewed from the ship starting right before 2145 it was amazing to watch the eruptions of lava flung up in bright reds and oranges against the night sky. If it hadn’t been raining and cloudy, maybe my photos would have been better. Maybe considering that otherwise it was pitch black, and you couldn’t see the mountain. But between the weather and the not particularly smooth sailing, I did what I could.
Since I will be headed past the volcano again on Thurs – this time at 0500 in the morning, I am going to give the photos a shot once more!
