My Vacation in Canada Part 2

When we arrived back at Marg's house I was greeted by angel who isn't and shown to my room where I unpacked and setled in, the first night I was in bed by 9.30pm as jet lag had caught up with me. I was awoken on the Sunday morning by the smell of freshly baked muffins and coffee and had a wonderful breakfast, later we went to a craft fair near the house but I forgot to take my camera so no pics of that day.

The next day we had breakfast an had some fun dyeing sock yarn in preperation for marg teaching me how to knit socks.



my first attempt



the end result

The next day we met DH for lunch at harbour quay and I had chance to snap some photos from the top of the clock tower.








Back on the ground there was some really nice native carvings of birds and a huge fountain with salmon carved out of stone.








After walking round a few stores it was time to go home and carry on with the sock knitting which I have now become addicted to lol

To be continued................

I hope one of you posts a picture of the completed socks so we can see how it knitted up.

There was a fantastic view from the harbour - I envy you for seeing some of the delights of that country It has to be so fulfilling to be actually dying the yarn before knitting with it - different from just going to the wool shop and merely purchasing it - reminiscent of days long gone, sadly
Looking forward to reading some more Hey, how bad is the snow with you? Here in Wales it's awful!
