Nautical Knitting

A few photos from the knitting cruise:

Head Banger

In Bellingham I was on a wonderful sailing and knitting cruise among the San Juan Islands. The ship was The Schooner Zodiac and the knitting was organized by Northwest Yarns and a good time was had by all.

I was with a good friend and neighbor and, after the cruise, we had a big spaghetti supper complete with dessert and 2 glasses of wine. Back at the condo we relaxed with a tiny bit of something that is legal in Washington but that in retrospect may have been a bad idea.

So now we have a combination (DH calls it a perfect storm) of exertion, dehydration, alcohol, blood sugar overload, and that other thing. This resulted in my experiencing low blood pressure and fainting, which in turn resulted in passing out flat on my face.

The fall resulted in 2 jaw fractures, loosened teeth, black eyes, swelling, bruises and, worst of all, a concussion. Ten days later I am still dizzy and on a liquid diet (As a result of which I’ve lost 8 pounds, so there’s that).
