SPNF #5 Finished

SPNF #5 Finished

Very happy with this one and now ready to return refreshed to finish #4. Sometimes, I really need the almost instant gratification of a crochet project. As reward for finishing one item, I cast on for the Concetta Cardi. I love the pattern and the Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine is very nice to work with – soft, subtle berry variegations in the dark blue and the alpaca with nylon lends a bit of drape. A progress picture will follow when I feel like that won’t jinx me!


This video has been making the rounds:

Love it! The smile on Loes face needs no translation. Hmm… Perhaps one day they’ll do a flashmob with all the socks that I’ve knitted and “Socked away” 🙂

A girl can dream…

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!
