National Sweater Day Is Today!

Today is National Sweater Day in Canada. And with the meteorologists predicting another 20cm of snow to fall through today, tonight and into Friday, this video seems even more appropriate to share here today.
Go Grannies Go! 🙂

National Sweater Day 2013

On Feb 7th, lower your heat and put on your favorite sweater to take action against climate change and work towards a sustainable future. Join Canadians across the country fighting climate change by conserving energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. If every Canadian lowered the heat by just 2º C this winter, it would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 4 Megatons!

So lower the heat, wear that sweater and make the world a better place for your Grandchildren!

Check out all that is happening here:

Desert Blossom Scarf Finished

This is one of two (“Desert” and “Ocean”) that are being auctioned in support of the “Party In The 100 Acre Wood” event, that is in support of Ottawa area food banks.
The K-Town Knit Night crew had a fun change of venue last week, when we moved things over to one of our local pubs to enjoy an “Open Mic” night along with our stitching (photos below).
And there has been some Yarn P0rn, but I’m too lazy to post the pictures yet. Instead, a couple photos of WIP’s, as the VERRA long drought in my knitting enthusiasm seems to have abated somewhat :).
