First day of School

Here in BC the first day of school only lasts for one hour - don't ask - it is a childcare logistical nightmare!

So I had 9 of my summer group after 10 and we went to Fisherman's Park. A river access point just a few blocks from my house.

They had a great time - they spread out (thank GOD), dug to the 'ocean', buried themselves, one guy actually SWAM ( let me tell ya, that water was frosty). A dog came by and ate 2 lunches, ziploc bags and all and then he played with the kids for about an hour.

All in all a pretty good time. Then we headed to 7-11 for Slurpees and a much needed coffee!

When I got home I found this waiting for me:

I am storing it with some Licorice soap from Bowen Island 'cause that wool had a stink on it like you would not believe - not sure why, but it was gag-worthy. (I do seem to have an extra sensitive nose).

It is called Cool Rain - brilliant hey? Can't wait to knit up that sock yarn. Delicious.

Oh, just LOOK at that scenery!!! Beautiful! You kind of wonder why they even bother with school if it's only for an hour?

And I have to ask where the sock yarn came from - the colour is wonderful! Too bad about the, um, aroma...

Beautiful photos - and beautiful yarn :o)

The dog ate the ziploc bags, too? I bet he regretted that decision later on in the day ;o)

When I washed the Spunky Eclectic yarn that I spun Oh.My.God. did it stink. Bad. Really bad. Once it dried out it wasn't so bad, but I'm still not sticking my nose in it anytime soon.
