Knitting on the high seas!

While Knitting One and Purling Two

Columbus Sailed the Oceans Blue


The Fiber Charmer Hopes That You

Will Join Her on a Sea Cruise Too!




After a hectic autumn of Fabulous Fiber Fests and Delirious Dyeing, Fiber Charmer will turn off her Dye Pots and set sail on Royal Caribbean Cruises’ Freedom of the Seas to get a head start on her own Holiday Knitting. She will depart from Port Canaveral (an easy drive from Atlanta) on Sunday, 17 November, for a 7-night adventure in the Eastern Caribbean. Enjoy a fun day at the CocoCay Beach Club and shop for unique (and duty-free) holiday gifts in Charlotte Amalie, USVI, and Philipsburg, St. Maarten.  With 3 fun-filled and relaxing days at sea, there will be plenty of time for holiday knitting.


Fiber Charmer has several special surprises in store for those who accompany her on this grand adventure.


The newly enhanced Freedom of the Seas is a marvel of maritime engineering, packed with awesome innovations to stir your imagination. Catch a first-run movie in the 3D theater or poolside under the stars on the outdoor movie screen. Infuse color into your cruise with the artworks of the BRITTO Gallery or with the frosted confections of the Cupcake Cupboard. And finish the evening with a selection of reds or whites at the renovated Vintages wine bar.


If you crave more action than that afforded by hours of knitting with your nearest and dearest, Freedom of the Seas offers a veritable plethora of physical activities: Hang 10 on the FlowRider® surf simulator; test your nerves on the rock climbing wall at sea; or show off your balance and grace at the floating ice-skating rink. 


At a cost of $850 per person based on double occupancy in an ocean view cabin (inclusive of taxes and fees; airfare, insurance and items of a personal nature such as adult beverages are additional), you can’t afford to stay home.  For updates and additional information, stay tuned to the blog!

Long time, no post

I didn't realize it had been so long since I've posted here.  I'll confess that I update Facebook much more regularly due to its ease of use, especially posting pictures.

However, I know not everyone uses FB, and I want to revitalize the blog.  Right now I don't have much to say, mostly because I've sick and not doing any of the dyeing that I planned, and I've got a lot planned!

Carolina Fiber Fest and Stitches South are on back to back weekends in April, which is a brand new challenge for me to dye for 2 wonderful shows at the same time.

I've also got something big planned for Fiber Charmer for next fall after SAFF.  Look for details soon!
