National Sweater Day


Since 2010, over a million Canadians have participated in National Sweater Day at their schools, workplaces and homes. Be sure to follow our blog for tips and stories as fellow knit-clad Canadians celebrate across the country. National Sweater Day is a fun way to learn about the importance of saving energy and to inspire you to use less heat all winter. Heating accounts for 80% of residential energy use in Canada and is a significant source of emissions. If all Canadians lowered their thermostats by just 2 degrees Celsius this winter, it would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about 4 megatons – that’s equivalent to shutting down a 600 mega watt coal-fired power station or taking nearly 700,000 cars off the road!

My GAP-tastic cowl is 2/3 finished. My plan was to take it outside for pictures today but when I finally remembered that plan it was getting dark out. Tomorrow. Who knows, maybe I can knit the last ball tonight.
