Next came several rounds of retail therapy. i was back to visit my sister and we set out a few times, and then I did some shopping on my own.
Can't go wrong with patternbooks. These two were both clearance 99 cents at Lens Millls Store. This is a retail clearance store chain in southern Ontario. During the course of one week I managed to visit two locations: Waterloo and Guelph.
Michaels. Again, two locations: Waterloo, and London, Ontario. Each of the three books has several projects that I would like to try in future months. I've learned that you must buy these books when you see them, as you might not find them again.
Conte Hoodie by Kristin Spurkland in the Interweave Knits Weekend, Special Issue 2010. It is knit with two strands of sock yarn held together. One a patterned wool and the other a solid.
Couldn't leave everything to crochet and knitting. I did have to venture into a fabric store. Daughter and I found our way to Fabricland in Kitchener. They had these amazing quilting fabrics at half off. It's so hard to find Canadiana fabrics, that seeing the two on the left almost left me faint. They are wonderful representations of Canadian First Nations artwork. Sorry I don't know which Nations. The third fabric is loaded with guitar images, which will make a great pair of boxers for my son.
