I might actually have some knitting to share.

Is all of this disgusting brown snow getting you down?
I hear you people.
Maybe this will help.
Ladybugs on a baby sweater?
Oh, yes please!
But if you're one of those heartless people out there who thinks that baby sweaters are stupid.
Have some left-over Vday candy.
That should do the trick.
Then you can join me as I nurse the worst sugar hang-over in LIFE.
(Serves you right for thinking baby sweaters are stupid).

This is for you.
By the time you've knit a few of these, winter will be over.
So, get knitting!

If you live in this part of the world, you will recall the disasterous snow storm that hit us last Wednesday, February 2nd (yup, Groundhog Day). Schools were shut down, buses were cancelled and many people worked from home. While it's rather difficult to work from home when you work in retail (if you have any suggestions, I'm open), I still managed to swing a day at home (working with one's mother is truly not as bad as it sounds).
As I was 'working from home' and keeping track of all those various groundhogs and their shadows (Spring is coming people! Relax.), I happened to cast on this warm hat.
Now, I know what you're thinking. "Lynn, you really should have used a lighter colour so that we can see the cables better". Yeah. I'm picking up what you're laying down- but when you're snowed in, you knit with what you've got on hand. Right?
This hat sort of makes me look like I could win a battle horseback- doesn't it?
Aaaaaand I happened to have three balls of Naturally's Aran Tweed in my house, originally intended for another snowy day stocking stitch beret.
I have doubts that that beret will ever come to be.
Now, in a perfect world I would have put a loooovely pompom on the top of this hat just as I would a cherry on a cake.
It was left for the birds.
And at $10.00/ball, I sure wasn't going to risk wasting even more yarn than I already did on this stupid thing.
Lesson learned- never try to make a pompom from wrapping yarn around a book of matches. Invest in a Clover pompom maker.
Dear knitters, I hope you also have a big hat/helmet to keep you warm.

And lastly- HELLO ADORABLE FAKE KNIT PANTS!
Too cute for words.
My sister was doing a grocery shop at Loblaws when she happened upon the Joe Fresh aisle and scored a pair of these for a whopping $9.00. Sadly they weren't her size, but they were the inspiration behind this whole little get-up.
