Rain Rain Go Away...

This is the view from my balcony today, you can't see the rain but it's pouring!  I live in the capital region of Canada so end of January we should have tons of snow on the ground, it should be at least -15C and sunny.  Instead it's 5C and raining.  Too little snow means no snowmobiling, no skiing and they have closed the canal to skaters.  Since I don't have to work today I am staying in where it is warm and dry.

I am taking this time off to do some chores like boring laundry and more fun sewing. 

These lovely mitts were knit by my sister Aline, they were part of my Christmas gift, meant to match my new coat that has not been made yet....

I think I hear my teapot calling.

Hats for the boys

These are my grandsons, Aedan on the left and Noah on the right.  I made them each a hat for winter.  Aedan's is made with Berroco vintage wool and Noah's in Galway.  I am currently knitting a jacket for their father my son Ritchie.  Pictures to follow.  Oh so much yarn and so little time!
