Are We There Yet?
- Impervious!! – 4th skein is a bit lighter than the other three, but there’s no way to alternate, so continuing on it is!
- Had an Impervious date with a friend, was very quiet
- Robin – Still picking away at it
- Raina – on second brioche section. Yay!!
On the Horizon
On the Knitted Path
- Yarn shopping in TO: two days of shopping, 5 yarn stores. Still didn’t get to them all! Missed Purple Purl and new one The Knitting Loft.
- New to me PassionKnit – lovely atmosphere, sweet staff, had my gnomes as a kit and I couldn’t breathe, and a nice selection
- EweKnit – love how big and varied it is, but haven’t once felt welcomed there. I always feel like a customer and never a knitter.
- Knit-O-Matic – lovely welcoming people, always time to sit and knit
- Romni Wools – massive but visually yuck and overwhelming but alllll the yarn
- Yarns Untangled – near Kensington Market, perfect for visitors to TO, good selection, plus focus on Canadian brands
- Curiosa Society – so Harry Potter!
- Bought yarn for my sock goals! 3 colourways of TurtlePurl – Canada’s best self-striping yarn.
- Splurge on Mineville DK in a white with blue speckles. Should show texture and cables like a dream
