Curling Win!

A big chunk of my winter is always spent in curling clubs.  Great exercise, great social times, and great fun!

This past weekend we participated in the Dr. Jack and Mary McQuay Memorial Mixed Bonspiel in Mindemoya and we won!  Last year we were in the finals, but didn’t manage to bring home the trophy, so this year was extra special.

I’ve also managed to finish another pair of mittens and add to the offerings for Canada’s 150th celebrations.  These are easy and quick mittens to knit with a very subtle maple leaf on the back of the hand.

The pattern is available in the shop – here – and also on Ravelry.  The samples were knit with our own Double Down in a specially dyed Canada Red and there will be more of it available in the shop soon.
