This was the scene in my house yesterday:
The temperature got down to 56 degrees inside yesterday and 54 this morning so we broke down and turned the heat on. We were hoping to hold out until Thanksgiving. The problem is our apartment isn’t insulated. At all. Built by an owner not planning to reside in it is the only answer I can come up with to the question of why someone would build an uninsulated house in New England. So it always feels like we are paying (SO MUCH) to heat the great outdoors. We’ll supplement the heat with fleece ponchos I made.
Here’s a winning tutorial: 1) buy a couple yards of fleece, depending on the size poncho you intend to make 2) figure out the middle and cut a spot big enough for your noggin (or the noggin belonging to the person you are making the poncho for) 3) stick it over your head and curl up on the couch with your similarly poncho-ed loved ones. Don’t say I never taught you anything!

And if you want a tutorial on how to make sock mittens, just leave a comment and I’ll email you some special instructions. 😉
