Vancouver – Monday

The convention center in Vancouver is right on the Harbour. In fact, the Coral Princess is tied up at dock right next door. With all the private balconies on the upper deck, it makes me want to just get on board, sit with my feet up right out from my room and knit my way up the inland water ways to the coast.


The architecture of the Convention Center itself is built like a ship. There may be sails, but the rest is pure cruise ship. It is wonderful. The views from the upper deck, a plaque with the history of the Two Sisters, and the inside Totem. Too bad I had to spend most of the day inside, not being able to see the sunshine that finally arrived.


With all but one speaker today being absolutely excellent, I really enjoyed the meeting.


The Horcrux pattern is an auto pilot knit once past the upper portion. I have the pair now finished and Monkey started. In the same yarn because the DH really liked the yarn and I should knit something for him. But it is really busy. And the truth is I forgot the ball of yarn that I wanted. Tomorrow, LimenViolet for Monkeys.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!

    Wow! Amazing scenery. I would be sorely tempted by the cruise ship too. That’s on the to do list.

    You will need another suitcase to deal with the socks you knit while there.
