Happy Canada Day!

Happy Canada Day everyone! We are going to the campground in a bit and will be back on Tuesday. Tonight we'll go to see the fireworks at the town about a five minute drive from the campground. Next weekend is Privateer Days in our town, and we have fireworks on Sunday night. (Kinda sad that we never do anything on Canada Day itself. I used to work at the local hotel, and so many tourists would complain that our town had no Canada Day celebrations. The local Legion has a garden party today, and I think there may be a few other small local things going on, but the big things always happen at PD after CD. But this way the kids get to see fireworks twice.)

Here's my entry to the contest going on at Lotus Knits, which I was directed to by Heddy and her contest links post. Since I started knitting when I was about ten, I have no idea what my first FO was and have nothing from those early days. The skein of Austerman Step in this picture is my next project that has not been cast on yet. I am taking it with me today to the campground and will finally start my Sockapalooza Pal's socks.

Speaking of Heddy, I was at her place last night and saw in person her contest stuff. Make sure you go enter it! I would have tried to smuggle it out or some of her other yarn, but I thought I'd better not. May not be allowed back again. I had my knitting with me (we had gone up to one of her neighbor's, but as soon as I saw she was home I scooted out) but didn't get any done. Her two dogs seemed quite enamoured with me, so I had a lot of petting to do.

Well, off to finish getting stuff ready. I have been working on that sweater for the store that I started last fall and have the back done. I have concluded that I won't get it finished for next weekend, though. Still have the sleeves and finishing. But I should have it finished in a couple of weeks.

Happy knitting!

Cool Stuff!! I love the kids' pool, it looks fun :-) I'm coming home this weekend (no kids!!) so hopefully I'll see you. I'm back later in July with the boys so maybe one day you're off we could take the kids to the beach or something?? We're renting a cottage in Port Mouton, so we won't be annoying my parents too much :-)
