knitting and travel

Standard

This is the Calorimetry headband that I made this week.  As I mentioned last week, I didn’t manage to finish it before I went off to Vancouver for the weekend, but I had no trouble knitting the rest of it on the drive there (that’s the best thing about being a passenger).

I used the Red Heart Collage yarn left over from the skein I bought for the fingerless mitts.  It still needs a button, but when I have had a chance to go to the yarn store, it will be truly finished and I can send it off to its intended recipient.

I have finished my periwinkle socks so they’re tucked in my closet ready to wear.  That leaves me without sock knitting, but my simple knitting is currently a garter stitch scarf.  The Sun Ray shawl is languishing in my neat and tidy knitting bag (Lego Nut had a fit of tidying the other evening…he likes going through bags of bits of pieces).

Here are the rest of my Granville Island shots…

The local brewery

and the hotel I stayed in. I bet you’ve never stayed in a hotel that has a brewery in the middle!  Below is the view, peering through the partially screened window into the brewery, right in the centre of the hotel.
