And here’s some yarn

that I picked up in my crazy 68 hours in Vancouver:

With our limited time, we only hit up Three Bags Full, instead of our usual yarn  crawl.  I really love Sweet Georgia yarns, especially the sock yarns.  A couple of those colours are repeat purchases.

The Kauni on the upper left is a treat – the colourway actually runs through blue as well as shades of tan/brown.  I really liked it.  I may use this to make the Bermuda shawl.  Or something completely different, I don’t know yet!

ETA:  inane observation from my trip:  by using my in-ear, noise cancelling ear buds, I not only combated the shrieking babies on the flight, but also alleviated any inner-ear pressure problems.  Yay!

  1. Can you tell me more about these ear buds? I have a granddaughter who flies alot to see her other grandparents and inner ear pressure causes her all kinds of grief.

    • They were just the stock earbuds that came with my mp3 player (a Sony Walkman MP3). They stick in really good and have some noise cancelling capabilities but I think the fact that they sit so securely in the ear made the pressure less?

  2. We are thinking of going to Vancouver for a few days as we’re visiting family in Seattle soon. Any suggestions on things to see, and places to buy yarn?

    Thanks!

    • There is so much to see and do in Vancouver, I wouldn’t know where to start (Sea Wall, the beaches, Robson for shopping, etc. etc.). But for yarn shops, my favourites are Urban Yarns (Point Grey), Three Bags Full (Main Street), Knit-n-Stitch Shoppe in West Vancouver, Homecraft Importers in Kitsilano. There are several others, but these are the ones I usually make a point to visit.
