I am more of a nature trail person than a shopping mall person, but we did stop at Fairview Park Mall in Kitchener last evening around dusk. The full moon was rising over the busy commercial district along Fairway Road. And I enjoyed the beauty of nature at a mall on a late summer evening.
Hilary of RQ Magazine featured two recent posts (here and here) about guerilla knitting in UpTown Waterloo. My world has not been affected by this urban movement so I walked along King Street between Bridgeport Rd and Princess Street on Monday and saw these warm and fuzzy additions on steel and concrete structures for myself.
On another note of the same tune, there is still time to contribute to a huge knitting project in Cambridge. KNITcamBRIDGE encourages “knitters from the community and beyond to contribute their knitting to the creation of a collaborative, large scale piece of outdoor public art – the covering the Main Street Bridge in knitting!”
Follow this link to the City of Cambridge website for information on more knitting events.
Gasoline cost around 90 cents a litre on June 11 as seen in this archived post. Since the HST came into effect on July 1st this year, prices are hovering around $1.00 a litre. I find prices in the southwest side of Kitchener are usually cheaper than other areas of Kitchener-Waterloo. Our local prices are consistently lower than London, Toronto and areas to the north.
Oil was about $75 a barrel today so I think gas should cost about 75 cents a litre at the pump. Instead it is around 90 cents a litre which is lower than we have seen in a while. I have noticed that gas prices in Kitchener-Waterloo are often lower than in London, Hamilton, Guelph and Toronto. I wonder what the price will be after the HST comes into effect?
