There are so many other great vendors there. You have to see the boot 734 right next to us. I think they are “El Tambache Traveling Show”. A father son operation belonging to the Fair Trade Federation. I have been buying mittens and leg warmers whenever I see them. They even have coats that are all lined with super soft fleece too.

As we where leaving the second day, still inside the Metro Toronto Convention Center I had this view. CN Tower directly above me.

Always like to go to Toronto it is a stunning view when you drive in to the city it

Hope today will be a good day for you ladies working the show. Take a break, have a lunch you will need it for the take down after.

Liquorice Jacket


Is a wonderful pattern by Louise Harding and relatively easy patterns to knit.

I was the lucky one to be able to finish this one for “The Yarn Store” in Newmarket, Ontario in a size 38.

So perfect size for myself…..well I had to give it up….

We used 9 skeins about 1152 yards of this very soft yarn called  Louisa Harding Willow Tweed and needles 3.75 mm and 4 mm.

If by chance you visited this last weekend the Creative Festival Show at the International Centre in Toronto, you could have seen this Jacket at ” The Quilt Store & The Yarn Store ”  booth. I had a wonderful time helping the ladies.


Ein wunderbares und relativ einfaches Muster zum  Stricken von Louise Harding entworfen.

Ja ich hatte das Glück, diese Jacke stricken zu dürfen für “The Yarn Store” in Newmarket, Ontario, Kanada, in einer Größe 38.

Also perfekt für mich im Mass….na ja sie musste aber weiter ins Geschäft….

Wir hatten 9 Stränge dazu gebraucht so etwa  1053 Meter von diesem sehr weichem Garn Namens “Louisa Harding Willow Tweed” und Nadelnstärke 3,75 mm und 4 mm.

Am vergangenen Wochenende war in Toronto eine Fach- Messe von Wolle, Stoffen, Perlen,Beads, und sonstigem  “Kreative Festifall” im International Centre in Toronto. Diese Jacke wurde da gezeigt als Muster für die Wolle bei “The Quilt Store & The Yarn Store”. Ich hatten eine Tolle Zeit dort mit zu machen.
