after the pictures of Montréal city yesterday, today it's all about the beautiful and welcoming shop Effiloché. those of you who have visited here before might recall pictures of yarn shops in different places I have visited. usually I go by what google gives me for 'yarn shops' and so in Montréal it was Effiloché. and boy did that shop not disappoint me. the warm welcome from the ladies who work there, the cozy set up of material and work spaces, it all makes you want to grab a fabric or yarn project and never leave. a great range of the popular Liberty fabrics, large fabric collections all organized by colour and brand, yarn of good quality organized by weight and colour... pure heaven! as I told the ladies in the shop, it is both a bad and a good thing I don't live close to this fabulous place.
of course I couldn't leave without taking some material with me, to make a piece that will always remember me of the great weekend we had in Montréal. project ideas were racing through my mind with literally every fabric or yarn I saw. I ended up picking a liberty fabric with matching yarn, planned to become a scarf of some sort. we will see how that is going to turn out one day.
