Yarn Haul #9 and #10: Gina Brown’s and STASH Lounge

January 6, 2019 | Comments

It’s been a while since my yarn haul post. Admittedly, I have done some yarn hauls since I last posted. But what better way to start the new year with my latest two trips? This year, I am going to try my darndest to not buy more yarn. My cousin is expecting a baby soon and she asked me to knit a blanket and a hat for the baby so I know I will have to buy yarn for that (I don’t want to use my cheap yarn for a newborn).

Yarn Winding

January 8, 2018 | Comments

My brother got me a yarn winder for my birthday last week and yesterday I spent the afternoon winding some yarn while watching Medici: Masters of Florence on Netflix. Yarn that has been winded I just finished a block week course (a week long course ) on history of early modern Europe and I was bit by the Rrenaissance bug. Historial fiction is one of my favourite genres across multiple media.

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!

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!
