Toronto

CN in the clouds as I make my way to Lettuce Knit.

A much-anticipated day off on Tuesday found me wandering the streets of my fair province's capital, searching for relaxation in both water and retail therapy.
The waters, I should explain, are found in this fantastically bliss-inducing spa:

My Spa. Yes, I claim ownership.

Where I spent three very good hours sauna-izing, green-tea bath soaking, and generally dreaming about the upcoming projects currently being formulated in my noggin.

Then off to Lettuce Knit, where I was highly tempted by some beautiful Blue Sky Alpaca, but courageously turned it down. I never knew I had the strength.

I also strolled down Queen West, and took in a good many button shops. Ultimately, it was Mac Fab that won me over. I didn't realize buttons were so fascinating. I have buttons for several purposes now:

Buttons for Duster.

Buttons for aesthetic reasons.

Buttons because, well, they're purple tweed.

At the end of a happy day spent, I curled up in my cozy apt. and finished the Tilted Duster (FO post to come soon.)
I hope to have a delicious hunk of knitting to show off quite directly. Urge me on - send the good knitting vibes this way.

Good knitting vibes... but bad friend vibes. Why did you tell me about the trip? You keep it up, you may be walking to the KW knitter's fair....
