The Purple Purl

Today I had the chance to wile the afternoon away with Jen, Fenner and the lovely ladies over at The Purple Purl. As we were cooing and cuddling poor little Fenner to near death, Amy dropped by to add some additional snuggles. It was a near perfect afternoon!

In addition to seeing the ladies, I was able to drop off the donations I collected from my rocking S'n'B for Highland Heights Knitting Club. I had so much stuff I had to take a cab down there! And that's not a complaint. The group really stepped up when I put the note on the message board two days before I was collecting the donations. I can only hope that with some notice the group will require me to rent some sort of heavy machinery to move the donated stash.

And as an extra bonus, I got to see Dr. Steph on The Dan. Word to my homie in the hood! *ahem*

BTW - Jennifer and Miko have put together a beautiful store with an incredibly delicious selection of yarns. If you haven't been by yet then you should go as soon as you possibly can. I promise you will receive the warmest welcome! And I am glad to say that The Purple Purl is now my shop of choice since I've heard some terrible news that Alterknit has closed their doors. (I hope it's a terrible rumour and not true.) and I'm looking forward to overstaying my welcome and emptying my wallet there. Tuesday nights are their stitch'n'bitch and I'm thinking about stopping by next week. Care to join me?

I don't get it! I was there this past Saturday with mum. I noticed some of the little "extras" were gone, like the jewellery and paintings, but there was no indication of closing...

Tuesday knit night was fun. Yarn shop in the 'hood is fun too!
