OK I could not resist showing you the spin cycle year I found and bought in Vancouver.
This is the most beautiful city and a great cycle.  We stayed near StanleyPark and hired bikes to cycle around.  I fond the most fabulous yarn shop
Urban Yarns  .  They had just taken a delivery and here is devilish Grin - I had one on my face when I left.
I was totally tempted by their amazing selection of Madelinetosh .... Oh and lorna's laces !!

The first picture is near the University of British Columbia and the yarn shop.

This is the view from the cycle path around Stanley Park.  If you are brave - cycle across the bridge and up into Whistle country!
Or visit the lake below.  Planed with water lillies, sadly this has caused it to slowly disappear!


Before I leave Seattle I must add that there are plenty of interesting sights, for example the library!

And this is the top floor!

Then we were off on the train along the coast and up to Vancouver (so much faster than by car - although I could not resist taking a picture of this typical American lorry)   passing through the legendary Bellingham where some lovely spincycle year comes from - you must know it?  Monomania!
