Winter is still here. Still. Everyone has had enough. Enough snow and especially enough cold. Minus 26 with the windchill this morning and into the minus 30's again tonight. Too cold. But, as much as we are complaining, it seems there is still more on the way. No signs of winter ending soon and the weather is calling for more snow this week.
The good news is that March break is only a week away.
The past month has included a lot of curling and some illness. A cold, followed by a chest infection made the short month of February feel very long for me. Hopefully I'm on the mend and will stay healthy so I can enjoy my break.
Another easy knit is off the needles. Two skeins of our Softspun yarn became this long, soft, and squishy cowl. No real pattern, just a few stitches, knit a few rows, yarnover dropped stitches here and there, and then joined as a mobius when I was out of yarn. It will wrap twice around my neck and is the warmest thing ever! Necessary given our cold weather!
I also knit a pair of socks for myself. Something I rarely do.
These are knit with Katia Darling and my standard sock pattern (Single Ply Socks). I love the colours and they are perfect for curling. I've already worn them a few times and they keep my toes nice and toasty warm in my curling shoes.
More socks are on the needles and another pair of the Curling Rocks Mittens for a friend are nearing completion. This week is the Tim Horton's Brier so it's fitting to be knitting a curling project and watching curling, too. Stay warm!
