STASH Lounge Moving and Other Outings

July 24, 2017 | Comments

Yesterday Yesterday opened up at their new location across the street. I dragged my brother along with me to the opening. It was absolutely lovely! They had a DJ play some music in the background, a coffee bar, and a table of yummy sweets in the back. They even had door prizes, which I suspect I didn’t win anything from but that’s totally okay. In terms of the space, it’s great!

Knitting Haul #1: LIHAO and Takumi Bamboo Needles

July 5, 2017 | Comments

I am just starting to get into knitting as well and I decided to buy a relatively cheap set of bamboo knitting needles. I found this LIHAO Bamboo set on Amazon for around $16.99 CAD. Included are 18 pairs of needles ranging from 2.0mm to 10.0mm. It also came with a knitting gauge which is super helpful! From a quick look over, there are no obvious defects. The reviews say that they are perfect for beginners so we’ll see!

Kits and Knits

July 3, 2017 | Comments

Last week was the end of final exams and on my last exam, I decided to take a well deserved day out. In celebration of Canada Day, Tim Hortons was bringing back Roll Up the Rim for a time. I’m trying to cut down on my coffee but I decided to get at least one cup, just to try my luck. Turns out that my luck isn’t that so great.

Yarn Haul #8: Gina Brown’s First Visit

June 28, 2017 | Comments

I went to visit another local yarn store called Gina Brown’s. I was in the area waiting to meet up with some friends and decided to pop in and check the place out. It’s way too convenient that this place is a ten minute walk away from a train station. It’s a nice store. In the back there’s a big table available for classes and (I’m assuming) to just knit or crochet.

Yarn Haul #7: The Knitting Room First Visit

June 21, 2017 | Comments

I have been going to the Brentwood Village Mall for the past couple of years now and I have never ever noticed this nice little yarn store before until I started up crochet. The Knitting Room is a small store located in a mall close to my university. I usually go to the mall when I’m itching to walk somewhere between classes. I decided to finally visit The Knitting Room for the first time and came away with some yarn!
