Traditionally, in Canada, the Queen's birthday is celebrated on May 24, which was Queen Victoria's official birthday. In my part of Canada, it marks the unofficial start of summer. These days it is celebrated the Monday before May 24 so we get a long weekend.
Last Monday, we got a day off to celebrate. My neighbourhood had a parade, with pipers, flags and kids on decorated bicycles.
Dolly loved the parade.
Because the weather this time of the year is fickle, last night we had frost warnings, and a low of 2 C.
We covered the plants and today, everything looks very spring like.
I got bored of knitting the lace border on my Earth shawl, so I did something different for a change. So, today's Department of Redundancy Department picture:
pattern. The yarn is Cascade 220 Superwash. I think I will try cat ears on my next one.
I was looking through my stash and found these two balls of yarn, asking to become a project together (doesn't everyone's yarn talk to them?)
