2016 Knitter's Frolic

I have been pretty busy these last couple of weeks.

On April 30th, I attended the Knitter's Frolic in The Big City sponsored by the Toronto Knitters Guild. I arrived at about 9:30 - after the big rush to get in yet in plenty of time for me to scope out the booths and decide what I might want to buy.

I met up with some of my knitting peeps and got to stroll around to my heart's content. At noon I taught my Latvian braid class. My students were very enthusiastic and did very well. The sweater is a Drops pattern. I will definitely be investigating the pattern.
They were pretty pleased with themselves. The braid really 'pops' when high contrast yarns are used.
Once my class was over and I packed up, I was able to relax and tour the show in earnest.

One of my favourite booths is ZigZag Stitches. I really like the fabrics they use for their project bags, I took this photo in hopes I'd run into Jen2. She has a dachshund, Bridget, who wears sweaters much like this.
This is a circular needle holder.
This light, colour-blocked infinity scarf really caught my eye.  It was the Sashiko Knit kit with lightweight, fuzzy yarns knit with oodles of moss stitch.

I liked this sample on display. Unfortunately, I tried to find the pattern on Ravelry and couldn't find it.
I met up with Jen1 and accompanied her on our rounds of the booths. It was a long day but 'twas most enjoyable.

Apparently the feedback about my class was positive and I'm being considered for next year's teaching roster. I have a couple of things in mind that I'd love to teach.


  1. I did not see that bag. Bummer

  2. Is this the correct pattern for the shawl?

    1. Could be it. It just looks different from the one on display at the Frolic.
