It was fantastic having Jessica here, in a my-two-separate-lives-colliding sort of way. I wish I’d had more time to show her the wonders of Windsor, but we did manage to hit a few highlights: Artcite, an assortment of my favourite bars and restaurants, the Lebanese bakeries along Wyandotte Street, and several dilapidated buildings and skanky Walkerville alleys. I think she liked it here.

This year I’m getting a bit of a head start on freezing-cold-floors season.
They’re the Prairie Boots from Coco Knits, worked with a double strand of a worsted weight wool/acrylic blend reclaimed from a thrift store sweater and finished off with some bright yellow vintage catalin buttons. I think my row gauge was a bit off, as my garter stitch cuff starts lower than the ones in the pattern photos, but they’re cozy and incredibly warm. And cute, in a silly kind of way.

Jessica is coming into town this weekend for our show and I’m beyond excited. Of course, I’m still finishing up my work for it, but that’s nothing new.
