Baby it's cold outside........

-27 Celsius this morning and the frost was on the windows. No going outside for the kitties today!I just love the lace like effect on windows. When working on my stained glass projects my favourite glass has to be glue-chip which is the same as what frost on a window looks like.
On to my next obsession which is getting some mittens knit up. Drops Design pattern No. 116-7 from Garnstudio.com pattern. Everytime I go on this website I feel like I need to shout it out.....all these designs are free for the taking people!! So I'm rockin' with Drops patterns right now. I'm using Noro Kureyon, colour 194. The long colour changes make for a really interesting mitten. The black is from my stash, Gaella Irish worsted knitting wool. Front view of mitten.
Back view or the palm side of mitten. Still have to finish the thumb and then block it. I've started the second mitt while we were watching the Canadian Curling Olympic play offs here in Edmonton.
Finished project which I blogged about earlier....yup I am finishing stuff around here.
I'm lovin the cables right now, and I would be further along on this if it wouldn't be for the mittens right now...yeah I'll blame it on the mittens ;)
A quick video of who keeps my lap warm while I'm on the computer. My sweet Noodles.

OMG...-27 C? We are having quite a bit of snow today but nowhere near that kind of cold.
Your knitting (as usual) looks beautiful. How's the spinning going?
