Even the longest holiday comes to an end and during our terrific trip through the States and Canada in 2014, our last stop to meet a Ravelry friend was in Vancouver. Once again all I can say is that Vancouver is a place you should visit, if you ever get the chance to do so. We loved it!
My friend Kelly gave us a tour of the city, took us to Grainville Island, showed me the yarn shops, had us taste strange ice cream (really? Is there anyone who wants ice cream with curry or garlic flavour?) and eventually we relaxed with a drink. Perfect day!
My gift for Kelly was a pair of socks with a geometric and straight forward stitch pattern, which - after meeting her in person -I hoped would be to Kelly's liking.
Which she did and she wanted to name the pattern after the pub we visited together in Vancouver. And in this case her wish was my command: Burgoo.
