First I have to say as a knitter, if you’re ever in Toronto at this time of year… This is an absolutely all knitters must attend event.  Send the Family off to see the Ontario Science Centre around the corner and put your shopping shoes on, and take a big bag!!!

We arrived as it opened at 9:00am, the line was long but moved very fast. 

Lots of people and even more goodies!

    Looks like SO much fun! Karbonz DPNs are just great. You can make some real nice socks with them and the beautiful yarn you bought. Nice purchases!
