Yes, I know the year is hardly “new” any more but, hey, a girl’s gotta hibernate a bit in this deep freeze. In true Winnipegger style, I went out in -39°C weather today to attend an outdoor birthday party involving skating, tobogganing and snowman-topped cupcakes. While warming up in the park shelter by the fire, a topic of discussion was the prevalence of single mittens this time of year. Sound familiar? In honour of such a tragic – albeit common – occurrence, I have put my Mitten Leashes on sale for the remainder of the winter. Get ’em while they’re, ahem, hot!
