Hot Dog-is it cold!

I know-that is what winter in Canada is all about. But I had gotten somewhat seduced about the whole "warmer winter thing", and the idea of "no snow, not so cold" was an acceptable way of looking at it. But today-I literally gasped when I went outside! And to top it all off, the school where I work was also COLD. We couldn't even use the gym today. A glitch in the new heating system is to blame. But I wore my entrelac sweater (the one that the Yarn Harlot herself admired!!!) and warm knit socks-I was toasty.
I am currently working on some dark navy Naturally Merino and Fur mittens-I knit them using 3.5 mm needles- the effect is almost a felted fabric. The pattern is from Morehouse Merino Knits. I am hoping to put white poodles on them with felt. Yeah, I know. I am poodle crazy. But they should be pretty neat.
Now to go watch "Stargate: Atlantis"! Ba bye!

I love the idea of the white poodles on your mitts - how cute is that going to be?
Sorry to hear how cold it is out your way. Good time to be making yourself some mitts.
So you've met the YarnHarlot have you? Lucky lady.
Stay warm.
