Good Friday

I trekked over to Bowen Island today and had a wonderful time visiting Dick and Jane. This wonderful store full of stitching supplies and small delights used to be in Vancouver but moved to Bowen Island 3 years ago. I was so glad I popped in as she now has a (very small) knitting section and I picked up a weaving book I had been meaning to buy for a while.

I'm very happy with how the small bee cushion is coming out and can't wait to get started on the miniature sweater. She has 2 other designs, one with a snowman and tree and one that looks like a miniature Setesdal sweater - too cute for words! Since I was distracted on the ferry ride back, it's a good thing I finished Fred's mitts on the way over. I'll give these to her at Knit-and-Pearl on Monday night.

The only small problem is that I left my cell-phone so I'm hopping back on the ferry for a quick run over tomorrow. I'll take the Flame and see what happens.

I've got that book and it's been very helpful. Looks like a fun shopping day!

Love those warmers, too. You always make such pretty and unique gifts!

Fred will be stunned and delighted at the same time. She'll understand what a true knitter is.

Can you bring your bee cushion to K&P monday? I would love to see it -- it looks so cute. Those mitts are lovely too. They're Fred's?

I got that book this weekend too! Are those hooks for sleying the reed I see next to it? I was looking for some of those too, but, alas, didn't find any locally. And the mitts are absolutely gorgeous! Love those cables and that color. Yummeh!

Ooh, the fingerless mittens are gorgeous, I must have a pair of those for work. And the miniature sweater is so cute! Great shopping.
