Holiday

I’ve been on holiday for almost two weeks now and am on serious down-time.  I have avoided all online activities, and especially anything to do with work, and have been enjoying spectacular weather and scenery in Vancouver and surrounds.  I still have a few more days to chill out, but thought I’d put up a short post to say hello, and “I’m still here”.

I have, of course, managed to bring my knitting along.  I am working on a beautiful shawl in laceweight cashmere yarn; it’s perfect travel knitting – compact, lightweight, and easy.  The yarn, Karei by Ito, is gorgeous:

The finished shawl will weigh only 125 grams, and it is almost translucent when knitted up:

I have managed to knit in some absolutely gorgeous spots.  Here I am knitting on the porch of Jill’s house on Lilloet Lake.  (Jill is the friend who made the teddy bear featured in this post.)

Why am I looking away from that spectacular view?  Because the views the other way are just as good!

And here I am knitting on Gibson’s Beach, halfway between Powell River and Lund on the Sunshine Coast:

One last photo before I take back up the holiday mantle.  Here are the four of us, at the lake, each wearing a stranded hat:

That’s me in Peerie Flooers, Leah in Bousta Beanie, Doug in Cascade, and Emma in Raven.

  1. How lovely to have all the family together on such an amazing holiday. Enjoy the rest of it and I look forward to seeing that beautiful shawl finished.

  2. I knew it. It though you were away. I so look forward to reading your blog every week! I have missed reading to see what you are up to.

    You are in my neck of the woods. I am on Vancouver Island. You sure are vacationing in a beautiful place. Happy to hear you are enjoying spending time with your family and friends. Cheers, Heather
