can i knit myself a raincoat?

Dear Weather.

Really? More rain? Huh.

I'm thinking that maybe, all of the requests for rain in the past years of drought got backlogged and you are just now getting to them. Is that it? Was Canada Post responsible for delivering these requests? If that's the case, maybe you should just use common sense and just answer 1/3 of the requests, not ALL of them. I mean, the requests came over the span of 3 years, right? Couldn't we just get the rain for ONE year (or even for one MONTH) instead of all THREE, just in this one month?

I just wanted to mention it.


PS If you want to bring out the sun, that would be GREAT. But if there was a chance that you could do something about the West-Nile-bearing mosquitos that are lying in wait in all of the standing water from the, you know, RAIN, THAT would be even more great.


In knitting news, the latest zippered cardigan, knit with the recycled yarn, is just about done. I am on the collar and then will face the daunting task of INSTALLING THE ZIPPER. (anything so ominous needs capitals, yes?)

I'll let you know how that goes.

Now, where to find a pattern for a waterproof knit hoodie?

PS Thanks to all of you who comment! It's nice to hear from you. I will try to get round to your blogs to see who you all are soon.


  1. I don't know about your raincoat, but I'm going to try to crochet a sushi roll... Thanks for the pics on how to cut the garment into a continuous piece. I tried it yesterday with a T-shirt and got a huge ball of "yarn". I am going to attempt to crochet some cute bathmats. THANKS!!

    P.S. I'm in S. Alberta too. The mosqitos are killer. And my basement flooded on Tuesday. Wah!

  2. I am so happy I found your site. It appears we have more in common than knitting! I'll let you know when I complete the "world renound" triple lindee patern!


Hi! I'm so glad you stopped by. I'd love to hear from you.
