Warm Hands, Warm Feet

I don't know about you but I am one of those people whose hands and feet are always cold. I just knit myself a pair of Newfoundland Thrummed Mittens and they are the toastiest warmest mittens. They have pieces of roving knit into every third stitch in every fourth row (staggered) and that provides extra insulation.

Add to this a pair of Cowhide boots (Made in Canada) rated to -40C that my hubby gave me for Christmas....

And I am ready for THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    BTW: I lost my shame eating that cranberry jelly..delish.
