Happy Birthday to me!

There is no way I was going to let a storm ruin my birthday plans. So what if there's slush, tree debris, and downed power lines all over the city! My plan was to take a day off work, and have a relaxing day of yarn shopping, and that's just what I did...

I started the day by sleeping in until 9:30am (for me that's real late). Then I had a cup of mocha coffee with a scoop of Godiva hot chocolate mix, and Irish cream. D-lightful!

Then it was on to Romni Wools, where I spent lots of time going through piles, and piles of yarn. And when I say piles, I mean stacked to the ceiling! You could get lost in that place. I don't know how they can keep up with their inventory, they got so much yarn. Oh and their bargain basement!I spent at least a half hour just in the basement. So here's the damage (pics in a later post): 3 balls of Phildar Auteuil in "Iris", 2 balls of Smart Superwash, and 3 balls of Patons Soy Wool Stripes in "Natural Navy". And to top it off, a parking ticket! Everytime I went there by car, I had a parking ticket. From now on, I'm taking public transit to go to Romni.

I wasn't going to let that ticket ruin my day, and went on to my next stop: Lettuce Knit. By that time I was starving, and these didn't help: Aren't they just delightful? I just love the packaging, and I must admit sushi was quite tempting at that time of the day. I knew I couldn't get anything hot around the shop area, since the power was down around most of the Kensington Market area. And the damage there: 2 skeins of Misti Cotton, 1 skein of Jitterbug in "Castagna", and the plat de resistance, 2 skeins of Sweet Georgia "Angel" and 2 of "Libertine".

Leaving you with more eye candy from Lettuce Knit, which I'm sure Michelle will appreciate (considering she couldn't visit last time she was in Toronto)...





Oh and yes I had sushi for lunch a bit later....
