So I never got to tell y'all about our trip to Toronto.

It feels like months have gone by, but I think it was about 2 weeks ago that we all went up to Jonathan's mom's for a week in Toronto. It was nice-- historically, we always rush up and back over a long weekend, and never get much time to relax and see the city-- but this time, we had a longer trip, and got to really enjoy it.

As always, Sam loved being with his cousins...

Granny got some quality time with the kids...

We all enjoyed the local splash pads...

(Why do we not have these in the US?)

AND... there was time for knitting AND yarn shopping!

I had wanted to bring Baby Cashmerino for a hoodie for Tali, but in the last minute morning-of-leaving rush, I couldn't find the pattern... so I scrapped that & ended up bringing a few balls ofZara Plus, which was intended to be a Baby Yoda sweater-- probably for Almeera's baby. I did the back... and then decided to just make a simple little pullover, which I think turned out quite cute.

I think I have enough yarn left for a matching hat.

Also, although we did not make it to Romni Wools, I did get to see 3 other Toronto area yarn stores, which was really fun.

I am bad. I forgot the name of the first one & am too lazy to go downstairs to look at the shopping bag. I bought some Arucania Pomaire cotton in a very pretty colorway. The second was called Knit Or Knot-- this was a great store & I will definitely go back there on our next trip when I have more time to spend. I didn't buy anything, but definitely could have. And lastly, we were down in Kensington, and I had to stop by Lettuce Knit-- I didn't have much time either, but oh, the sock yarn. I bought some Tofutsies, which I have been anxious to try, and something with Seacell, which seems cool as well.
