|Here I am modeling the cowl I made, it's made from|
cashmere and so soft! It is gray and purple.
for all of my latest projects!
On the same trip to Toronto we visited a lovely little store off the beaten track called The Knit Cafe, where I found a beautiful shawl kit.
It was knit in four pieces which then were stitched together. It is mohair and a silky thicker yarn making the stripes.
It's sort of like a cloud, very soft and light. I love it!! It may be perfect to wear at Juli's wedding in Montana as it will be chilly in the evening on the Helipad!
The owner was such a sweet lady we spent a lot of time there and bought lots of yarn, mostly in kits. I also bought a kit for thrummed mittens which I have as yet to tackle. Keep posted!

We four had a fabulous time in Toronto. We stayed at an AirBnB and just shopped all the yarn stores. We dined at an authentic 40's diner for Saturday morning brunch, it was so great. Also were able to visit the huge Artisan Show where I met Gordon Harrison and we were able to buy fur pom poms. It was a very special day. We were all disappointed to learn that one of our favorite places closed after we left, the Purple Purl. Sorry to see it go.
Yarn Untangled was another quaint lovely shop in Kensington Market area that stocks local yarn, where I bought the luscious Lichen and Lace yarn to make socks. It sang to me from the display.
Here are the socks.
