Give-away postponed

I haven't been able to find just the right things for my vacation give-away, so I'm going to postpone the draw for a week, until August 7. I have a few little fun things already (including some yarn), but something still seems to be missing. This corner of BC where I grew up is so beautiful and interesting, I want to find things that really remind me of the things I love about this place. If you haven't already entered the give-away, please go leave a comment on that post, since it will make drawing random numbers easier and more fair.

New yarn

I picked up some yarn for a new design, and I'm really excited about it! What do you think this will become?

There's still a few days left to enter my give-away, so don't forget to leave a comment on the previous post.

headed out west

Tomorrow morning we head out west to spend the summer with my family. A little town in the mountains of South-Eastern British Columbia, where my parents, grandma, and three of my siblings live. We're looking forward to sunny days playing outside, long hikes in the mountains, swimming in the lake, and visits with family. My husband and I are also taking a little side trip to Portland, Oregon. He has to go for work, and I get a few days on my own. I'm really looking forward to exploring yarn shops, books stores, and whatever else takes my fancy.

I'm not sure how much I'll be able to post here, but I'll try to share a photo now and then, so you can see how much fun we're having!

I also thought I would host a little give-away, to share the fun with you. I'll pick up some little souvenirs while we're in BC, so the give-away will be a surprise. If you'd like to join in, just leave a comment here. An email address helps a lot too (in my last give-away, 2 winners never got their prize because I couldn't get in contact with them). I'll choose the winner (or winners) at the end of July.

I hope you all have a beautiful summer full of adventures, and maybe just a little knitting!
