Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

Fishing In Alaska


Wow!  That was an experience. We caught halibut, salmon, red snapper.  We trapped crab and shrimp.  (I didn’t actually fish.  I took a lot of photos.)  And we ate a lot.

Here’s my catch of the week!  (Why does the lettering space out like that?)

I knit an entire shawl!  There are strings hanging out all over, and it desperately needs blocking, but I did it!

We’re parked in a harbor in Sitka , Alaska.  We’re going to spend a couple of days in Seattle with friends.  On Sunday, we’ll be home!!!!

More in a few days when I’m back from this wonderland I call The Middle of Nowhere.

  1. lol You had me so confused at first. I thought I was reading the Deadliest Catch blog. Heh.

  2. Ok.
    1) Super pretty.
    2) Super creative.
    3) Looks totally like Alaska. LOL.

  3. The best halibut I have ever had came from Alaska………just scrumtious!

  4. Good to hear from you, how does it feel to be on dry land, does the bed sway at night?

    Love the shawl, thinking about Mochi Plus for it, but its a few items down in the queue

    Can’t wait to see yours all spread out and blocked

    Have fun in Seattle If you get to Little Knits tell Sue Grace says HI!

  5. Alaska sounds fabulous, and well done on the shawl! 🙂

  6. What a catch! I went salmon fishing once off the coast of Washington in very rough waters. The combination of anxiety and sea-sickness just may keep me off boats forever… and all I caught was a stinkin’ fish.

  7. I can’t wait to see more pictures! Sounds like a fantastic time!

  8. We honeymooned in Alaska. Now, I know you’re thinking, “So, you didn’t see much of it, right?”…but my husband is obsessed with fishing like I am with knitting.
    We fished. Everywhere. For everything. In anything.
    I learned to say NO after that trip. (And yet here I am, on this island.)
    Alaska is beautiful, and the halibut and salmon can’t be beat. I’ll bet you have some fab pics, but maybe not if your hands were that busy with that shawl. You are amazing!!
