I’ve been to Toronto and back home in the last while. Had a great visit with family, we celebrated our son’s second wedding anniversary and his wife’s graduation with her MA. I managed to find Lettuce Knit in Toronto and bought the Fleece Artist sock yarn while I was there
I found this expensive but luscious yarn in London at Needles and Pins. I am thinking of making a stole from Exquisite Little Knits.
I went to Paris, Ont and found Mary Maxim’s, I have seen many of the catalogues, never ordered anything.The catalogue barely skims the surface of what is in this store, it is the size of a good grocery store, there are gift items, scrapbooking, fabrics and I even saw some Noro and Malabrigio. I think that something must always be on sale and I got the two balls of wool below for half price. I have a couple of funky purses in mind.
This fabric (2 fat quarters) is cotton with a texture, that will come out when washed but I scored it in Exeter.
When we got home, we were off to our boat, which is currently in Anacortes, Wash. Since we were celebrating its purchase, I bought the smallest container of wine possible. I am such a wine innocent, I didn’t even know one could purchase 500ml. I cut the package apart so I could do altered art with the label.
I found a yarn store in Annacortes, I got St. Ives sock yarn, and assorted threads for needlework. http://anacrossstitch.com
