My Trip to Vancouver

I had a great trip tp Vancouver. I spent lots of time with Megan and Meika and I got to see my 2 boys also. It was nice to relax and have some quality time with my kids. I took some pictures so here they are. The first one is Megan wearing her new birthday sweater I made her. It is made with Noro Transitions. The pattern is from the same edition of Vogue as the Twisted float shrug Fall 2005, It is pattern #1 in the book. Eyelet pullover with Peplum. I made a variation at the bottom of the sweater. It is supposed to flair out like the sleeves but I didn't think Megan would like that flair so I didn't do it. I think it is very nice on her. She looks great in anything. Notice the beautiful weather. It was like that for my entire stay in Vancouver, what a treat.

The second day I was there we meet up with Holli Yeoh of Bees Knees. She  bought some sock yarn from me so I thought I may as well deliver it since I was coming down, plus I wanted to meet her. We could have talked for hours about knitting and sweater design. It was fun. In the picture left to right, Meika happily drinking a bottle, Megan, Devan, (Holli's little boy)he is so cute, Holli and me.

The rest of the time in Vancouver was spent walking around enjoying the beautiful weather, scenery and eating. Here is a picture of Meika eating breakfast. She is so much fun now, full of energy and very playful. I had a lot of fun playing with her.

 Here is a picture of Megan eating at the Keg. We had a great lunch there. Meika was very bored with this so had a good nap.

I actually got some knitting done while I was away. I am at the heel on my first Jaywalker sock and it is really nice. I will post a picture later.

Looks like you had a great time. I really wish I had taken the opportunity to meet up with you guys.... it just seemed a bit overwhelming at the time.

The sweater looks wonderful.

Looks like a great trip, good thing it was last week and not this week (weatherwise I mean). Megan's sweater turned out great, glad I got to see it in progress. And of course Meike is cute as ever!

Megan is a really beautiful girl... no wonder Meika is so cute! I love that sweater - the yarn is fantastic. Good choice to omit the peplum, I think.
