Those of you who just left Peru- what’s an easy to find yarn shop in Cusco? I have a friend there right now and I told her I’d make her something if she brought back some yarn. I’m tagging her here Ruby Escalante I looked through your photos and didn’t pick up on any names.

One of our knitters just sent me this picture and it really touched my heart. Her cruise to the British Isles in July was just canceled and she sent this sweet message "These are the samples from Gwen’s classes, from my first Craft Cruise. Behind (on the left) are samples from Beth’s classes. I can not wait to cruise again, and I really want to cruise with Craft Cruises, because YOU’RE THE BEST!!!" We'll get through this and there will be many great times to come. Thank you Leigh Ann.

Our Pacific Coast knitting cruise group would have been in San Diego today enjoying a trunk show with Mira from Baah Yarns. These pictures are from 2014. We’ll be back!
