Knitting Up A Storm!

Thursday, December 08, 2005

Last night my SnB group went to the BookBookBookII launch held at the Museum of Textiles. Stephanie is so entertaining and witty. I quite enjoyed listening to her. I bought her book and she signed it for me. I wish I could have spent more time with her, but alas there were others that wanted their copy signed.

Due to the deep cold Toronto is experiencing, we now have our ice rink up and running. The process starts around the beginning of November with preparing the ground. This year is the largest rink he has built to date. It is 32'x42':

Once the boards are up, Chris monitors the weather channel for a streak of cold weather below zero. Then the obsessing starts. Truth by told, I think it really starts when the cold weather starts, but hey that is just my opinion. He is securing the tarp and preparing the water hose and various other tools:

We can almost skate, but not quite. Looks ready, but we are waiting for the water to freeze:

And then - the first night of skating:

It is too bad I wasn't there last night, but alas, I was amongst my knitting friends. Tonight will be my first skate of the season in the back yard. I can not wait.
