patrick and i went to carcross last night for a hike around and an ice cream! it was great to see the whitepass train parked there (now the train from skagway comes all the way to carcross - hope it comes into whitehorse soon)

the water is really high - sandbags are sacked everywhere and you can hear pumps running

I'm madly knitting a set of bamboo facecloths for Carliegh's wedding - umm yes i know ... her wedding is on Saturday! i have to get these in the mail!!

in anycase they are super soft and lush and i'm really happy with the colour.

the "pattern" well it is a star stitch with a garter stitch border.
