shopping highs and lows
Although the Frolic ran Saturday and Sunday, the marketplace was only on Saturday so Shirley and I were out of luck. MUST. READ. FINEPRINT. MORE. CAREFULLY. Fortunately, even on a Sunday there are lots more yarn shopping options in Toronto. Within minutes of our initial diappointment we were back into the car, headed towards the Purple Purl. And as you can see, I was able to pick up most of the items on my shopping list. Needles for hats, needles for sweaters, and yes, some sock yarn too!
The yarn is Viola sock yarn in a Robin's Egg colourway. It's very softly multitonal and I think it'll be perfect for Bayerische socks. Or maybe something fun and lacy instead? Sounds like a good excuse to wander through the Ravelry database looking at sock patterns, doesn't it?
