I heart Queen Street
We beared the cold winter weather and had a nice stroll along Queen Street on Saturday. One of my favourite parts of the city is this stretch of funky clothing stores, beat up old fabric stores, notion stores like Mokuba ribbons, and some great diners and restaurants. From a lead from Toronto Craft Alerts took us to a vintage clothing sale where i found some great things: the velour frock pictured above, this vintage apron, and an unfinished piece of quilt sqaures that J wants me to make into pillows. He also was successful buying clothes - can you believe he said 'now i'm done shopping for the year?' I wish i had that strength.
Amd, regarding knitting news, i have an update! On Saturday, i went with my friend to Knit Cafe to start a new knitting project. Thanks to all the suggestions from my blog friends, i feel more inspired. I have started a drop stitch shrug that i'm excited about making. I'll post my work soon. The cafe is such a great place for knitters, i'm so glad we have something like it in Toronto!
