No, it isn't Tuesday. I have my car in at Volkswagon, and I am a bit nervous about how much it's going to cost. This may make a severe dent in my travel plans this summer. Oh well, I don't mind a staycation- gas prices are crazy, so maybe I won't need the car very much.
I cannot believe it's almost 6 years old. My Rabbit has been trouble-free and I hope to have it until it bites the dust. My dad used to keep his cars for around 10 years, but he was a contractor who used his station wagon as a tool chest/portable file drawer/and who knows what. You always had to wipe plaster dust off the seat, or worse, dodge copper pipe that ran back to front.
So, I've been busy. I have been sewing a ton:
I attended the last meeting of the DKC- soon to be known as The Toronto Knitters Guild. There was a presentation by Diamond Yarns, and Westminster Fibers, distributors of Rowan.
Mystery Afghan- which I think is done now. I used to like Rowan before they were bought out, by Coats and I find, for the price point, it isn't always of a very high quality. The colours are nice (albeit discontinued at the end of the season). I know in Britain it is the popular brand, Liberty's sells it, but on the whole, the presentation is good, but be careful what you buy.
And I am gearing up for Tour de Fleece- I have some goals set, and am ready to motor. Or treadle, as the case may be.
Happy Solstice- and fleece out until next time
