It’s going to take me a while to sort through the 700+ photos and videos from our trip so I can share the stories here. So I’m glad today is Wednesday – a perfect opportunity to share one little story about the hand knits and hand sewns.
For the hand knits, I took Soyokaze (the only sweater I packed), fingerless mitts, a headband and four scarves/shawls (Tokyo, Bateaux Mouches, 2017 TTL Mystery Shawl and 2018 TTL Mystery Shawl). For the hand sewns, I took the ikat Esme tunic, my latest Uniform tunic and the wax and wool tote. I wore every piece a lot, with the exception of Esme, which saw one dinner the first night of the cruise and never even got a photo. The fingerless mitts, too, never got a photo. I wore them the first day we were in Vienna and managed to lose one. Thankfully, our hotel was just yards away from a lovely yarn shop; I bought yarn and needles and knit another pair just in time for the really chilly weather in Linz.
My me mades saw a lot … and had a lot of fun!
Here’s the headband and 2017 Mystery Shawl in front of St. Stephens Cathedral in Vienna.
I wore this outfit the day we boarded the boat in Vienna.
Here’s Tokyo enjoying a private tour and concert at Belvedere Palace.
Bateaux Mouches probably saw the best panoramic view – looking across the Wachau Valley atop the castle ruins in Durnstein.
Tokyo enjoyed the best cocktail – an espresso negroni in Linz.
The 2017 Mystery saw the last evening on the boat
and (along with Soyokaze, the replacement mitts and the headband) a chilly morning walk through old town Nuremberg.
Head on over to Kat’s to see more unraveled stories.
Finally, my heart goes out to everyone in the path of Michael. Thankfully, Atlanta is just out of his reach and all we’re supposed to get is a few inches of much-needed rain.
