Rockies part 2

Here are more of my holiday favourites:
Maligne Lake, near Jasper.

The weather was just amazing that day.
Maligne Lake
Minnewanka Lake, near Banff
Lake Minnewanka
My new hat and jumper near the Athabasca River
Sunwapta Falls
Mushrooms, we saw lots. I took a lot of pictures of mushrooms, this is my favourite.
Fungi
And finally, this is Damson by Ysolda Teague. I wound my most favourite ball of Yarn Yard Toddy at about midnight on night before we flew to Canada.
Damson Shawl
I'm so glad I did - I love the way the subtle blues and purples work in this shawl.
I knit this through the hours of delays at the airport on the way home, I have never been so glad of long rows!
I used every last cm of yarn too - casting off as we landed back in the UK!

What's next? Well, another Ysolda design of course!
Vine Yoke Cardigan
I'm jumping on the bandwagon - it's a Vine Yoke Cardigan from The Twist Collective in Dream in Color Classy.

Great to have you back, what a wonderful holiday and amazing photos!

I think I might copy you and knit the Vine Yoke cardigan and I'm not sure about the Damson shawl too. I bought 3 skeins of Koigu in New York that could be just right for it.
