Ontarian winter

Every time there’s a dramatic temperature change (like the recent plummet from 0C to -23C in 24h) I listen to the house settle with loud groans and cracks, and I feel a twinge of trepidation for the large glass panes of the sliding door in the back. So far, the door’s just peachy.

But last night temps rocketed back up to just below 0C. I started up out of deep sleep to a gunshot-like crack, but didn’t see or hear anything else and finally went back to sleep, thinking it might not have actually been as loud as I’d imagined (as proven by the tiger snoozing peacefully through it).

When I opened the blinds this morning, however, I saw a long crack running diagonally through the pane of one of our bedroom windows. I think it’s only the inside of a double pane, but I guess it’ll have to be replaced. *le sigh*

Anything like that ever happen to you?

October Project

What? One project for the whole of October? Yeah, well, it was a beaded shawl in cobweb lace involving the placement of 2067 beads, so it took a while. But it was soooo worth it.

This was a test crochet for the Fritillary Shawl pattern by Aparna Rolfe.
