Toronto Road Trip

Sunday was a great day! I spent the day with 7 other Knitting Goddesses on a road trip to 5 knitting stores in Toronto.

This is in Americo Origininal.

This is what I brought home. The pink Noro came from Knitomatic, The green/yellow Noro came from Lettuce Knit, the green and brown Cotton Fleece (cotton and wool) was from The Knit Cafe, The varigated grey is Misty Alpaca (cotton and silk)from Knitomatic, The orange is Viola (hand dyed superwash sock yarn - this is my new mystery project yarn) from The Purple Purl, and the grey lace weight (llama) was from Americo Original.

This is some of our group in The Knit Cafe...

....and Knitomatic.....
....Lettuce Knit....
....and here is the whole group in The Purple Purl.

The only downside to the whole day was when it began snowing on the way home. After spending the day not even wearing our coats it was a bit of a shock to come out of the restaurant to find it snowing very heavily. It made for a long drive home but at least we would have been prepared if we had of got stuck on the 401 in a traffic jam due to an accident; we would have all had lots of yarn to pass the time!

You packed a lot in one day! I can't usually manage more than 2 or 3 in a day!

Americo actually let you take a picture inside the store? It's a lovely store & if I were to knit a bag I'd go there for a handle. Looks like you ladies had a great trip. Any plans for the Frolic?
