Welcome to my new blog. No one I know is a knitter. I learned from my mom when I was young but she passed away years ago. So I talk about my passion for knitting with my husband and two teenagers. My husband is ever patient and my teenagers just roll their eyes. When travelling I have dragged my husband to more knitting stores than I care to admit. So I guess I will use this blog as an outlet to describe the ups and downs of a knitter and hopefully someone out there will read it!
This week I had the pleasure of visiting a favourite yarn store of mine called eweKnit in Toronto. This is a delightful yarn store that is easily accessible by subway. I love this store because of the amazing selection of yarns (they have fabric too). The store carries such lines as Spud & Chloe, Madelinetosh, Zen Garden, The Fibre Company, Turtlepurl, Sweet Georgia just to name a few.
Some women have a weakness for shoes...my weakness is for yarn. When I go into a yarn store I must carry a list of what I am looking for otherwise I tend to get sidetracked. Do I always look at the list? Aaaah no! But at least I have it.
Here is a picture of one of my purchases. This is Aslan Trends Royal Alpaca worsted in berry. If you have never had the pleasure of holding a skein of this yarn let me tell you it is soft. I am thinking a cowl maybe? What do you think?
Next time, I will write about my very decadent purchase at this store.
Thanks for reading.
