When Cathy dreamed me up back in her yurt in Hawaii in the spring of 2017, she says that she had no idea I would be such a hit and such a special part of her trip to Europe.
We were supposed to only be gone from the United States for six or eight months, but we have been traveling companions for 14 months! And look at the stats:
- Over 200 contributors
- 6 meters long!
- 8 Countries
- 35 Blog posts
- Youngest knitter: 13 years old
- Oldest knitter: 94 years old
- Over 25,300 kilometers/15,700 miles traveled
- We stayed in over 35 different places
- And, most importantly: we made many, many new friends!
Cathy is continuing around the world, but she is sending me back to Vashon Island in the United States to the welcoming hands of our dear friend Emily MacRae for safekeeping. Cathy has some kind of plan to take us on a road trip around the U.S. next year. For now, I will wait patiently with Emily for her to return to me.
Cathy, it has been an extraordinary and astounding sojourn. Thank you for inviting me along!
A special note from Cathy:
