A ROAD TRIP - TO VICTORIA :)

We are off to Victoria this morning... Michael will do his little cleaning job that he does every weekend while I play in our storage room (read: stash!) and then we will check in to a lovely hotel on the harbour in time to watch that football game everyone's talking about. (Not being the least bit interested in football, I will have various knitting projects along to amuse myself with)!

Tomorrow morning we'll have brekkie with the kids (except Hailey, Whistler's too far away to come for brekkie...) and then I have to get my driver's license renewed; if I have time I'll do a bit of a grocery shopping (MUCH cheaper prices than here on Salt Spring!), maybe get a hair cut, and be back on the Salt Spring ferry to knit at the Rock Salt tomorrow afternoon!

I got an email from my Metchosin friend Wendy ... last year, our little Thursday afternoon spinning group (the one in which I was an imposter) created a hand-knit blanket from hand-spun yarns (we each individually knit a 'panel') which will be donated to a charity. Here is Isabel and Wendy showing off the final finished product, ready to go!
And today's "other" PHOTO OF THE DAY:
... just as if they were posing for me... :)
