I’m still immersed in a whirlwind of conference presentations, posters and demos, so I’m going to resort to photos to show all the fun I’ve had when I’ve managed to squeeze in some tourist moments. First, I managed to fit in a visit to downtown Vancouver during my 6-hour layover on Friday.
I only had a couple hours to spend in Vancouver, but we had a whole free day on Sunday to tour Seattle. Of course, I went straight for the yarn store….
I had such a hard time settling on what to buy at Churchmouse Yarns and Teas, but I finally settled on a single skein of Kidsilk Haze Stripe (double the size of a regular Kidsilk Haze skein) to make an Inside Out Cowl. I’m dying to make their Color Play Mohair Wrap, but four skeins of the Stripe yarn is just a bit outside my budget at the moment! I may try it with some other mohair yarn I have stashed away at home, but that is a project for October. For now, I’m just trying to enjoy this conference before I have to get back to my regular life back in Ottawa.
