I discovered the clothing company Roots way back in the 1980's. They are a Canadian company and so whenever I go to Canada I always stop in. On this trip I bought these cut fingerless mittens. I have seen them listed as Wristers also. They keep your hands warm and you can still have your fingers free to do stuff.

When I got home, I decided to try and figure out how to make more in the colors that I like. Here is what I came up with yesterday. I think it turned out pretty good. Now I am thinking of all the color options. Apparently, the more colors the better.

Another great find while we were in Canada was on the TV. We used to watch a Canadian based show called Flashpoint. Although it was cancelled in the US they are still showing it in Canada. I am thinking that if I can't watch it on-line, I should be able to order the DVD's when they come out. I wonder what else there is out there to discover?

Oh, I like those! Love the colors too.
Yes, I had looked at your profile too and thought how much we do have in common.
That is why I enjoy blogging so much!

LOVE those. I wish I knew how to do that. You could easily sell those on Etsy! Very pretty oranges. =)
