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.

My husband and I love shopping at Mark's because it is a one-stop-shop for us to buy clothes and footwear that we enjoy wearing. If you are looking to get outfits for yourself or planning on purchasing clothes and footwear to give as gifts to your loved ones, I would recommend shopping at Mark's online or at their store locations. We can always find quality, comfortable clothing that are sure to be loved.

Wearing comfortable and cozy boots to keep our feet warm in winter is a must, to avoid getting sick! My daughter and I like Skechers boots that have Warm Tech Memory Foam, which makes them the best to keep our feet warm. The thermal fleece lined insole retains our natural body heat and prevents it from escaping.

Exploring winter scenery is lots of fun when it is done in snowshoes. Since snowshoes provide flotation, we can walk on top of snow easily and not sink. I think having proper snowshoes for children makes it a fun experience for them, so everyone in the family can go on fun excursions. My children have been using the MSR Tyker and Shift Youth snowshoes, which are especially designed for children because of its lightweight, durable, and safety features.

Having the proper winter boots is very important! When I buy winter boots for my family and myself I look at three things: how warm the boots will keep our feet, the grip on the boots so we can avoid mishaps, and the style. I love the quality of Columbia brand winter boots because of my prior experiences with them. They not only last long, but also keep me warm, and it is footwear I can rely on.

My husband has been wearing his regular fit Helly Hansen Juniper Sports Winter Jacket, and loves it for many reasons. He says it doesn’t feel bulky yet keeps him really warm and cozy. We love the stylish sporty design of the jacket. It has every feature you can think of! Wearing this jacket is comfortable because it is extremely light and airy.
As the weather gets cooler, I like to wear layers. Depending on where I go the temperature is different, since some places have heaters turned on high, and the other places are much cooler. Due to this reason, I love wearing this lightweight, compact Helly Hansen Verglas Down Insulator. I love that it is compact because it can be folded and fits easily into a bag, which makes it perfect for winter travels.

This time of the year, my family and I spend lots of time gardening, shopping for the garden, tending the plants, and weeding to keep our garden a clean and well maintained space. For us gardening is exciting, tiring, and relaxing. We love reading books about gardening, trying a variety of different plants and flowers every year, growing to love some plants more than others, talking about plants, recommending our favourites and our tips to family, friends, and neighbours. Recently, I got a wonderful book from DK that tells all about what plants go where in our garden.

Having a warm, comfortable jacket is very important to survive the extreme winter. My daughter loves how warm and lightweight this jacket is. I love how it looks, and its fabulous features. Primaloft InsulationECO in this Helly Hansen Junior Stoneham Jacket makes this jacket really warm, soft, and lightweight, so the jacket can be worn comfortably for a long period of time.

I enjoy wearing scarves and always go for different colours that compliment my clothes. From the time I bought my first cashmere scarf in Singapore a few years ago, I always look for that special soft scarf that feels good against my skin. When I touched and felt the CashTouch Plaid Scarf in Macbeth Tartan from Lands' End, I instantly felt good about how soft and comfy it is. This super soft, lightweight, cashmere-like scarf is a perfect accessory for the cold Canadian winter.

I have heard lots of wonderful things about hydraSense from my friends, but haven't used it myself yet. I always feel congested and my nose easily gets stuffy in winter, and when the seasons change. This is when I look for relief to make me feel less irritated because of my stuffy nose. I am planning on using these products, as they do not have any preservatives.

My family and I had an awesome time watching Disney Frozen during the December holidays, when we all felt "frozen" because of the ice storm. Here is our thoughts about the movie. We enjoyed watching the movie again at home, and had lots of fun. This a movie that can be watched over and over again. You can own a copy of the movie when it releases on Blu-ray combo pack on March 18th.

Chicken Soup for the Soul: O Canada The Wonders of Winter is a book that celebrates winter with stories from coast-to-coast that I enjoyed reading by myself, and reading to my children. Children will enjoy listening to these stories and ask for us to read more. These touching stories will remind us of our own experiences and make us feel proud to be Canadian.

The first week of this winter holidays for us is all about Ice, Frozen, Snow and Storm. We had an awesome start to our holidays watching the opening night show of Disney on Ice Princess and Heroes at the Rogers Centre. Disney on Ice is a wonderful live show to watch with the family. We enjoyed watching the Disney characters coming to life and beautifully skating on ice.

Tram footwear is perfect for all our winter, fall and spring activities from playing in the snow to slush or tobogganing and more. We really like the functional design with the grab-n-pull rubber handles that allow children to easily put the boots on. Having an easy to wear boots will give children the confidence to do things on their own. This is very important to young children like my son who is in kindergarten, as he is learning to get ready independently.
