Vancouver Part 3

On Friday, we had a lazy morning, no rush to get going.  We wanted to check out the Sweet Georgia Yarns studio.  They are one of my favourite yarn producers and local to Vancouver.  I wanted to find a nice luxurious yarn to use to make a shrug to go with a sleeveless black dress I have.

this is the sale “bin”

They have a small office/storefront with their in stock yarns/colours, and next door was the dyeing space and the clearance/sale bins.  What a delight!  They have several different yarn weights and blends and they are all quite lovely.

(The sharp-eyed among you might notice Ande is wearing MY new boots … what a good friend to help me break them in!)

I ended up getting some Cashluxe Spark in the “magpie” colourway.  I think it’s a good match to my shoes:

(More on the shrug in a later post.)

We had Ande’s nephew coming to stay overnight, so we didn’t stay away too long.  The yarn studio was our big excursion.

These boots (Fluevog Malcolm) were worn to start breaking them in:

We had a lovely supper then watched a movie and knit.
