Details: From cable knit to crochet, knitting has grown from an age-old craft to a hip and trendy hobby. And now, knitters can celebrate the 2015 New Year while cruising the Danube River on AmaWaterways' Knitting New Year's Cruise. Departing from Germany on December 27, the cruise aboard AmaBella -- hosted by textile expert and owner of Trendsetter Yarns in Los Angeles, Barry Klein -- will feature the latest luxury yarns, fashion trends, classes, patterns and techniques. Also offered will be excursions such as guided tours of Vilshofen, Linz, Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Melk Abbey. To ring in the New Year, passengers will enjoy a celebration with music, dancing and a champagne toast at midnight. Fares start at $2,799 per person.
