Canada has gone ga-ga over Will and Kate!
The fabulously popular royal couple arrived in Canada on July 1st (Canada Day!):
They’ll spend nine days touring around our fair country. The biggest topic of conversation and media coverage is Kate’s wardrobe and choice of designers. She’s looked smashing so far! By all accounts, William and Kate are enjoying their time here very much.
Too bad they aren’t coming to Waterloo! [Sidenote: I did stalk Prince Edward a couple years ago when he stopped by the Perimeter Institute which just happens to be conveniently located across the street from me! That was a fun New Experience!]
Look what is FINALLY FINISHED!!!
Some food bloggers (Kath! Angela!) take spectacularly artistic outdoor photos to showcase their delectable smoothies and voluminous oatmeal bowls. I, in turn, am following in the footsteps of my Knitting Idol, the Yarn Harlot, and on Monday, went searching for a scenic outdoor venue where I could take some knitting pics. [Want to know how crazy popular the Yarn Harlot – aka Stephanie – is? Her blog posts routinely receive 200-300+ comments! Talk about a loyal following!].
got bored switched to photographing my new Nike Lunareclipse + shoes!…
Thank you, Nike!
Refreshed, I went back to the blanket…
Not quite as impressive as the knitted bridge project, but then I’m working solo!
Anyway, how does the finished lacy blanket tie in with William and Kate’s Canadian visit? Well, over the course of the past year, I’ve always joked that this blanket is so intricate and has been so time-consuming, that it will be worthy of royalty once completed. So any time William and Kate announce an upcoming baby arrival, I’m shipping them this blanket! [Could be sooner rather than later, given Kate’s much-publicized baby comment on Monday].
There’s another Kate to whom I would rather gift this blanket some day!…
Cousin Kate and Pete are engaged!!
Are you a Royal Family fan? I adored Princess Diana and avidly followed her life; since her death, I have not really kept up with Britain’s favourite family. I do think the Royal Family will continue to see an upsurge in popularity with William and Kate now on the scene.
