Canada Day and an F.O.

    HAPPY CANADA DAY if you're celebrating today!

I mentioned in yesterday's post that I found a skein of yarn on the yarn crawl of Alberta stores last week for my Travel Afghan.  As always, I was looking for something that would be a souvenir of the trip, something that was special to the shop or area.  At River City Yarns in Edmonton I found yarns that were exclusive to the stores.  I got my skein in their West shop. 

 The yarn is fingering weight so I had to double it for the block.  It's a gorgeous yarn called "Adam and Eve".  There were many pretty colors and I chose the beige shade with a hint of a pinkish color throughout.  It's dyed by Handmaiden for River City Yarns.  

I've now completed block #52 of the afghan - 3 more blocks, plus the border left to go.
