Snaps of our weekend away with a stop to look at some fluttery beauties…
The girls were enchanted and so excited to hold a few on their fingers before they fluttered away.
My trip to New York in food and yarn…
:: breakfast at Sarabeth’s
:: sushi at Nobu Next Door
:: the best tomato salad I’ve ever had at Mercer Kitchen
:: and of course, yarn fondling at Purl.
The silence around here was due to a girls weekend getaway to New York this past weekend! I arrived early and of course, had to stop at Purl Soho.
And of course, I had to buy something from this beautiful store. I purchased the yarn to make this lovely cowl.
More about my NYC getaway soon…
How did you spend your Labour Day weekend?
A little staycation for us this long Simcoe Day weekend, including a visit to a safari.
Then a drive west to London, Ontario, where we stayed overnight — the girls really love hotel stays. I think it’s something about everyone sleeping in one room that they enjoy!
Plus, there was lots to see and play and learn at the Children’s Museum. They enjoyed the Arctic fishing interactive play the most!
Which involved a whole lot of southern barbeque!
And a day in storytale land!
How about you? What was your weekend like? Did you stay in or go out?
I found myself in Seattle for work for a few days earlier this week. I had one evening to myself and made my way downtown for some shopping, sight seeing and seafood by the pier in Pike Place.
It was the first time I visited Seattle. The view of the mountains and the wonderfully tall pines blew me away. To have a view of the mountains and trees daily as I worked would be a dream!
The trip also presented some uninterrupted knitting time. Five hours on a plane, perfect to start a very first shawl for K.
I cast on for the Little House Shawl using a merino superwash by Fiberstory. One of my favourite things about this shawl is the colourful pinks, grey-blues, yellow-oranges of this pretty yarn.
Hope your week was a bit of adventurous, too!
Happy weekend, friends! It’s a long weekend here in T.O.
