Canadians: sarcastically embracing stereotypes for 142 years.

Since it’s Canada Day, I think it would be customary to cast on somethng from the Canadian yarns in my stash. It’s completely a national pride thing, of course and not at all to do with my rampant start-itis.

If you’re in Canada I hope you have some nice chill-out time today, and if not, well I hope you still have some chill-out time, and maybe a beer.

Happy knitting, wherever you are!

    So I can’t really hear the lyrics at this point, but yeah, I wouldn’t mind being Canadian. Case in point: I was IN Canada on Canada Day, and the most exciting thing that happened in our campground on the holiday was a bocce ball tournament coupled with an evening revel with polite beer drinking and a guy with a guitar (good) and a nice voice. 🙂 (We weren’t invited, but that may be because we are hermit types.) Contrast that with a 4th of July I spent at a municipal campground (which I shall not name so as to protect the city which doesn’t deserve the scorn it would receive) where I was seriously afraid that one of the bottle rockets being set off would set my tent on fire. Loud, well lubed Americans with things that go “bang!”. *shudder* I’ll take the Canadians any day.

    Happy belated Canada Day!
