Later we joined the other bits of our band at the Legions in Chilliwack and Vedder and then on to the Anafvets. I remember doing medical support for the big parade in downtown Vancouver when I was in the Reserve Forces Medical Corps in the early 1980's. I never paid for a beer when I was in uniform, and once, a whole table of Royal Canadian Mounted Police were leaving, and they each put a glass of beer in front of me on their way out.
But if it is, I made my Mom some thrummed mittens from a Fleece Artist kit I bought in Charlottetown. Casbah! Nothing too good for Xmas gifts.
Scott's Slade sweater is still languishing and waiting for buttons. It was acres of navy stockinette and I am not sure of the fit. Hopefully he will like it and wear it and we can get pictures.
I am still working on a big something for my knitterly daughter who may read this if she is bored in her studies. I will post after Christmas. But can I say it will never end if I don't stop ripping back. Plus the yarn had a bad attack of moths (how did they get in to my stash!!!!) and I am having to piece and curse simultaneously.
