Gritty, Icy, Soggy, Icky

Ah, Springtime in Winnipeg!

It's that time of year again when the temperature warms and the snows begin to melt...and the city turns into one giant mud puddle. It's Winnipeg's least appealing time.

However, I've got a :::Friday Find::: that makes it just a wee bit more bearable.

Called Bog Boots, these are the best, and even better than being the best, you can buy them locally at Lee Valley. They may not be cheap, but they're well worth it - I wear mine not only in the garden, but also for walking the dog. They have excellent traction on the ice, when they get caked in mud you can just hose them down and as they're made from neoprene they're completely waterproof. I've had mine for a few years and, though they're too warm to wear in the middle of summer, they're ideal for spring and fall.

I realise this is sounding a bit like a sales pitch (honest, they haven't paid me) and seeing as I haven't shown you any knitting for a wee while, here's a little something to tide you over (I'll be showing you what's on the needles in a day or two).

"Wool" by a natural gas provider in Belgium:
