The annual TTC Knitalong was this past Saturday. I was on Team Intarsia (a.k.a. the best team).
Team Intarsia started at Creative Yarns in Scarborough, which had a great sale and the Zauberball I’ve been coveting, so I did a lot of my shopping there (the Malabrigo and the Louisa Harding below were both from there too).
After that it was a long bus and subway ride to The Purple Purl. My friend Ilana broke a DPN en route!
But she bought new ones when we got to the Purl, where is where I got the Sweet Georgia DK. I normally don’t do crazy colours, but the skein was just so vibrant I couldn’t say no. It was calling to me. You know how it is. Ilana’s DPN troubles were soothed when she won the Purple Purl’s draw for their limited edition Indigodragonfly colourway and a pattern.
It was also at the Purl that I started binding off my wedding shrug 😀
Then it was on to Romni Wools. I bought a spindle there that is hopefully better quality than the current homemade one I have. It’s Ashford, so it should be. Romni was also giving away free needles and this little adorable guy, who now resides in my craft room.
We discovered that Romni also apparently sells the stuff you’d need to make muppets.
Then it was on to Americo Original, where everyone got a free skein of lace weight 100% llama for FREE. I was nearly done binding off at this point.
I walked down the street like this too. Really weirded out some of the uninitiated, lol.
At the Rivoli I finally finished the shrug.
AND I got the following certificate, after my team leaders nominated me <3! The lovely Glenna C. was one of them. She has some great photos of the day (and of the most awesome team, if I do say so) on her blog here.
A damn good day.
