Adventures with Little Miss



TTC Knit Along 2010

On Saturday July 10th I and my mother took part in the TTC Knitalong.  We started our days on either sides of Toronto and both rode the GO train in.  We met at Union Station and then took the TTC up to The Passion Knit.  When we got there we signed in and met some of the other ladies who came.  We were not the only mother daughter group, we met Lindsay and Ruth.

We all got the great red swag bags.  I dug through mine and checked what we got:

I did get some great DPN and a pattern for the Universal Sock.  I bought a ball of On Lite a germany sock yarn.  You can guess what I started to work on.  Mom casted on to make life easier.  I was on the search all day for the best pair of needles. ADI TURBOS!!  So we travel on to Mary Maxim.  We all wandered the shop and then stopped for lunch.

and I found the holy grail of needles *Note this is my opinion* I began knitting further on my socks.  I was so happy with these needles.

While at Knitomatic Haley the owner and her amazing Parot hopped around all of us crazy ladies with sticks and string.

We then took all of our wares travel again on the TTC.  We took the Streetcar and it was HOT and sticky.  Although we were happy to be off to Romini Wools on Queen.  It was huge and I got a Spinning Wheel!  I will post on that later. We ended our journey and Rivoli a bar on Queen.  We all relaexed untill all the groups got in.  The team leaders Thanked Us and the Stores for the great wears we got.  They handed out prizes and we knit and chatted.
