Knitted reflections


I found this supercute yarn shop and knitter's cafe on Queen West Street. Since moving to Toronto, I have taken up knitting as a hobby to pass the winter hours when I was home alone during the day. So far I've made almost all of my friends a hat or a scarf, but  since the spring/summer have set in,  people don't really need winter wear anymore. So I've taken to knitting baby items. I've got a dear friend who will be having a little one in October. I've already made several pairs of booties and now I'm working on a blanket. Maybe I'll post a photo when it's done, it's looking quite nice so far!

Until then, you can enjoy more reflections at Weekend Reflections.

My sisters would love this, but it doesn't do much for me! :)

A knit cafe? That is a new one to me. But, if you don't mind, I think I will pass. I will go next door to Starbucks.

My wife goes to a knitting group every couple of weeks as a reason for a chat with friends. I probably could not sit still that long.

@Ciel - je dois peut-etre faire un concours comme tu as fait il y a qq temps avec ton coussin. :)

@Bob - there are also knitting groups that meet here, but I have never been to one.

I associate knitting with one of my darker chapters in life... but it was soothing... :-)

What a great idea!
How does it work? Do people learn knitting, and pay like going on a course, or is it free, and people help each other?

Halcyon said...

@Gunn - I think they offer lessons. But people can just come to knit and hang out on their own too. And most knitters are more than happy to give tips and advice to others. :)

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
