Three Bags Full
If you ever find yourself in Vancouver be sure to check out Three Bags Full on Main Street. The choice is amazing and the staff are fabulous and super helpful. They are terrible enablers though and will tempt you will all manner of lovelies that are difficult to resist. While I only managed to bring home two bags full of yarn I was delighted with what I found and could easily have filled a third and a fourth and a fifth...
They were wonderful enough to wind it all for me too.
Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock (80% superwash wool/ 20% nylon) - no ideas yet
Malabrigo (100% merino) - wristwarmers/ headband
Euroflax (100% wet spun linen) - lacy scarf
Blue Sky Alpaca Silk (50% alpaca / 50% silk) - scarf
A few other lovelies may have come home with me too but they're a secret so shhhh!
Oh for more luggage space and a higher weight allowance.
TBF is also where you'll find Christa of the Christa Knits podcast about knitwear design, well worth a listen if you get the chance.
I'd love to say I had a relaxing and refreshing time on holiday but I got a stinking cold a few days before I went which knocked me off my feet a little for the duration of my trip. I still had a lovely time though. I also got to look at the blog from another computer and realised what a mess it looks in other browsers so I'll be working on an overhaul shortly so don't be surprised if things looks a little different over the coming weeks.
