The 2010 Knitter’s frolic took place at the Japanese Cultural Centre in Toronto this past weekend, and it was fantastic.
You all know how much I love a good photo mosaic, so here is the at-a-glance fun that was the Frolic:
I didn’t take as many photos as I would have liked- I was so busy fondling the yarn and deciding what to buy I had to do another walk through to snap some photos! The full set is here.
I tried to be a bit restrained this weekend- funds are a bit tight, but that didn’t stop me from making a few purchases:
I’m utterly in love with the new St. Denis spring/summer 2010 issue. There are so many patterns in there that I’m desperate to knit! I also picked up a copy of Royale, a new pattern that I’m so in love with.
Let’s get a yarn close up, shall we? Top: Mirasol Sulka, one of my favourites:
I love Sulka for it’s lovely, subtle heathering. The yarn is practically prismatic!
And on the left, a lovely skein by Indigodragonfly, in ‘kitchen sink’, and two skeins of Tanis Fiber Arts Green label in ‘Stormy’. I have to confess I already own a skein of laceweight in the same ‘stormy’ colourway- I can’t get enough of the grey blue and grey green tones. All the yarn is slated for gifts- cowls, shrugs, and the like. If only I could decide on which patterns to use!
