Ever since my first project a few years ago, I have loved doing quilling on a variety of surfaces.

Cable Stitch Knit Scarf

cable stitch knit scarf
I love knitting cable stitch! It is easier than it looks. All you do is simply catch the knit stitches according to the pattern onto the cable needle and hold it either in the back or front then knit the stitches on the knitting needle, then knit the stitches you put on the cable needle. I find the knitted projects using cable stitch add elegance and a beautiful texture.

I was able to see how safe and reliable it was to walk on the icy surfaces wearing slip-resistant boots that has Vibram Arctic Grip at the Mark's Well Worn ice runway pop-up event at CF Eaton Centre. Did you know 20,000 people in Ontario go to Emergency Rooms yearly due to slips related to ice and snow? This makes, it utmost important for us to pay more attention to the boots we wear.
