International Jetsetter

Well, not quite, but I am posting this entry from Vancounver airport.

Best Beloved and I have been on holiday to Vancouver/Victoria/Seattle, and are now waiting to come home.

We had to buy another bag - because he bought lots of clothes (being a bloaty boy, the range is much better on the US side of the Atlantic) and I bought lots of YARN!

It was heaven. I didn't get to half of the yarn shops I wanted, as most are outside of the main "downtown" areas, but I did get approx 2 carrier bags full. There are some fab colours in my new stash, and I've gone for mostly natural fibres (I have a long history of using acrylics, when really I shouldn't).

I will post piccies when I'm home, as I've got some sorting and labelling to do for Rav, but I have increased my stash quality considerably. That's it now until Ally Pally, that's what I keep telling myself.

I did some craft work while away - the tapestry crochet bag pattern is a go-er and so I sat in bars and on trains hooking away I received some comments of praise for my work, which was very gratifying.

Another 12 hours, and we should be on British soil. Can't wait.

NB - Edited later to add pictures of yarn
