A major new road opened today in Edmonton.  The Anthony Henday Drive rings the city.  Construction began in the 90s, though some roads were there even earlier, with the major push in the last 10 years.  It is high time.  I took a drive right round the city.  In heavy traffic!  I wasn't the only one just out on a lovely day on a Sunday afternoon cruise on the Henday.

While I was out I took a minor detour and picked up some lovely stuff.  A local Raveler was selling stash she isn't 100% in love with and I came away with some lovely things.  For no good reason, but hey.  What the heck.

 Some stunning Three Irish Girls Merino and Silk.  This is going to be a vest.  It is a little short on the gray but I have something that will, I think, work to beef up the metres fairly seamlessly.  Failing that, I will see if I can source another or will make do, and turn the colours around from my original vision.

And here we have another vest.  Again, it's three of the more simply coloured skeins and two of another and a single of a third just to make up yardage.  But again, I think it will work together and look great.

A sunny October afternoon is good for stuff like this.  Dreams and schemes and feeling good!
