On the weekend I decided to drop into Passionknit, my local yarn shop, just to see what was on the needles there.
First, I went to my new favourite coffee spot ” I Deal Coffee” located at 3336 Yonge Street. As I’ve mentioned before, their Maple Syrup Latte is a must try, but the regular coffee drinks are all superior.
People were still digging out from the big storm the day before, so traffic in Passionknit was light to start, but it got very busy in the afternoon.
I was only there for a short time – enough to get some ideas for my next projects.
Patti is making “Pop Spots”, a shawl designed by Juju Vail of Loop, London.
Morgan is making these adorable Luvbots by Anna Hrachovec of Mochimochi Land.
Meanwhile I spent some time surveying the Grignasco Loden wall….pondering the potential of using several of these colours together in one of Brooklyn Tweed’s new fair isle sweater patterns (see the Winter 2013 Collection).
I left with seven colours of Baby Cashmerino – my inspiration for a new nautical themed fair isle cowl I’m working on.
