present for christmas
« on: December 24, 2017, 10:12:39 PM »
I stumbled over a russian page. It is a pattern generator.  All models are Rundschau drafts.
I have linked to:

a jogging trouser
http://portnoyblog.com/bruki_sport/

a raglan pattern
http://portnoyblog.com/skm2/

and a T- or Pullover draft
http://portnoyblog.com/futbolka/

You fill in your measures and you will get a pdf.

I have tried these Rundschaudrafts (Not the generated one, I drafted them) for my husband and grand children and they work well. I think it is worth a try.
There are more drafts on this page.  Look around. And for Ladies too.

happy christmas

We had the other end Graham, Christmas day and now Boxing day are overcast and cool which is comfortable enough but lousy for the camera filters I need to test out. Hope everyone had a great Christmas, my only indiscretion was to eat most of a leg of ham by myself.

I for one am enjoying the cold weather here. I prefer winter to be wintery!
 Minus -18 C this morning feels luke -27C with the windchill.
My stepson and family are having a day inside with their children as it is -40C where they are.

Terri,

You must be born to the cold, they worst I have ever been subject to was -5c in the country and my hand stuck to the steel rail over a bridge and I nearly had hypothermia for the 2 minutes exposure. We don't get dry crisp cold, we get it so it goes through your bones and it comes up from below Australia from the great southern ocean. At the other end I do OK at 40C and can manage if I am careful about 45C but nothing done in any hurry. This is where stubbies, a T shirt and an Akubra (hat) is survival gear.

Glad to hear you had a good Christmas.

Graham,

I don't get fat on meat as I have a stone age stomach but I made the mistake of eating a big piece of a Christmas pudding that the girls next door gave me and felt a little seedy for the rest of last evening. Will fix it later with more of the leg of ham.  ;D

Mom did not say much about 40 below zero from her childhood. Did say that when it got 20F below zero they'd talk like it was summer, being so much warmer.
In the morning granddad would open up all the doors and windows before starting a fire to heat the house. Stale air doesn't burn well or heat up as fast. Plus, I think the body does better with fresh air than stale air.
Below freezing doesn't happen much here. Some years none. And others, a few weeks. Certainly different kinds of snow. Some can be driven fast in and others drive slow. Sometimes, if don't drive fast enough, like 40-45 miles per hour,  it's very slippery. Other times going fast is slippery. And then there is having having a couple of wheels in the deep and a couple of wheels on the packed. If one is slippery often the others are not. Jiggling the steering wheel, constantly, and you know immediately when the auto is going onto slippery snow and ice. Tires are not the same. One year I was flying past other people on the road. But, the last day they flew past me, and I was barely moving. One time going west it was slippery. When I turned north onto another road I could go fast, and needed to, because of the hill to go up. After driving on snow and ice for several weeks it is nice to see it gone. Those of you who have longer periods of snow and ice I don't envy you at all. Two or three weeks is plenty. It is always nice to have a week or two of winter snow instead of none. And for ice skating no snow at all. Seasons are nice.

Hutch, dry air is nicer than wet air. Wet air is bone chilling. Some people say that 40 F of damp air can feels colder than - 20 F of dry air. Think more people die of hypothermia above freezing than below.
