Knitting again

west of Toronto you will find Oakville

a sweet place with a very sweet wool shop

only pure materials, mostly from Peru

silk, alpaca, cotton, merino, sheep wool and many more natural yarns

in the most amazing color ranges

if you are in the neighbourhood you should definately go out there and visit this lovely shop

I couldn't resist the blue-grey and red skeins on the right

Saskia, the friendly lady who owns the shop, winded these balls of yarn for me

and so it happens that, after a lot of crochet, for a change I am knitting again

and I love it

~ enjoy the sunny weekend! ~

  4. Very nice. I'm going to Canada to visit dh's family in a couple of weeks - I'll have to look around in the area I'll be in to see if I can find any yarn stores. :)

  5. You are certainly searching out all the lovely shops! What beautiful colours! Have a nice weekend.

    Maar als ik ooit in de buurt kom ... Dan ga ik er zeker kijken!

  12. Knitting is my first love, but you have inspired me to crochet again! Isn't it lovely to know how to do both!

  13. Goodness me, that does look like a VERY inviting shop! Not sure once in, I would have ever come out! ha ha!

    Have a super day!
