Frolicking with Knitters

This morning I headed into The Big City to attend the Downtown Knit Collective's 'Knitter's Frolic'. I didn't take any classes this year but did spend about 3 hours in the Knitter's Marketplace looking at many gorgeous types of yarn. I significantly added to my stash. This is what I bought:

Berroco NaturLin - 40% Linen/60% Rayon

Fleece Artist Sea Wool
70% wool/30% sea cell

Kroy Socks

Naturally Dawn 50% New Zealand Wool/ 50% Silk

100% Soybean Fibre yarn

I bought a simple shawl pattern and a 60" (150 cm) 5mm Addi Turbo circular needle for the button band on my Must Have Cardigan. I also bought an itty-bitty sock blocker key chain.

While there, I ran into several of my knitting buddies: Lisa, Martina, Margo, Jackie, Michelle and Cindy.

After arriving home and updating my Ravelry stash, Skip, Scooter and I headed to the cat show at the Whitby Curling Club. We saw many breeds including: Abyssinian, Himalayan, Maine Coon, and Bengal. There were even mixed breed housecats being shown.

Now to search for patterns for my lovely yarn...

  1. Hi Geri, Remind me next year about the cat show. I don't think I read about it anywhere, but would love to see those breeds. They are beautiful.
