So much of the last few days has me at a loss for words. So, today, three things:

1. Canadians, please call your representatives. Ask them what they will be doing to help refugees who can no longer seek asylum in the US. Email them, send them letters. Let them know that this is not okay.

2. I can still make Pussy Hats – if you are planning to go to a protest and would like one to wear, please let me know. I will make and mail as many as I can.

3. In the words of Elizabeth Zimmerman – Knit on, with confidence and hope, though all crises.

I’ll be back on Tuesday with regularily scheduled knitting posts. In the meantime, keep spreading kindness.

Last weekend, while M was visiting, we took advantage of Toronto’s Doors Open event, where museums and other facilities around the city are free. We visited the Bata Shoe Museum, went for a short hike in High Park, and toured the city greenhouses in the park, which is where the city grows all of the plants for use in city parks. It was really cool to see how seeding and transplanting work on such big scales- they had really neat seeding machines to help out but lots of the work is still done by hand.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! Be sure to check back tomorrow for an exciting announcement!
