Happy New Year!!!

And Warm Fiber Wishes to you all!

Can you believe that we are now closing in on Sea Socks Cruise? My office is filling up with boxes of items for the bags, the bags are ordered and forthcoming, Mama E is up to her elbows in yarn and dye -- seriously, we've been busy!!

I don't have much exciting news to share -- other than to say hi and go over a few housekeeping things.

So, first -- HI!!!!

Now on to the housekeeping:
1. Final payment is due on February 1st. I have spent the last week working on putting together everyone's invoices (yes, this will actually be MAILED and not E-mailed) -- and they are in the box to go out tomorrow. There is an excellent offer in the invoice from Unicorn Books and a questionnaire I need filled out --- so if you don't have an invoice (or aren't the person getting the invoice) in a week -- call me at 888-286-9827 or e-mail me and I'll get you copies out straight away.
2. I have one person who wants to join us, but needs a room mate. I'm fresh out of unmatched roommates, so I thought I'd throw it out there if anyone was willing to take a triple (it will probably lower everyone's per person rate) and add a sweet knitter to their room -- as an incentive, I have a present for the two people willing to add the third. She is seeking non-smokers -- but like the rest of the group, she's a fun loving, sock knitter --- thus she's cool. Please e-mail if you are interested.
3. Has everyone heard that there is going to be an East Coast Fall Fiber Cruise, yet? Yup. There will be a 9 day cruise (roundtrip from Baltimore) in September. This one is geared to spinners and knitters and has 3 days of classes -- Mama E and Amie G will be back as well as Marie from Brooklyn Handspun AND Kate Gilbert (you've heard of her, right?). There's a special offer for anyone booked on Sea Socks already -- but since it is exclusive to you guys, you have to call or e-mail for details.

Ok, that's all I've got. I just checked Amie's ticker on her blog -- 3 months, 3 weeks, and 5 days until we depart. I can't wait. I'm already planning my clothing (read: outfits to match my socks) and dreaming of vacationing with all my newest friends! I can not tell you how exciting it is for me to think about wandering the ship and seeing knitters all around.

It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who coordinates outfits with socks.

Biggest decision for me is which knitting to bring along for my train ride across the country.

Hmmm, Aunty Nin....I'm thinking some really sweet and kind knitted gift for a travel agent you know ;)

I'm a size 8 shoe, just in case ;)

(kidding, sort of...maybe...)
