I took with me, four knitters that I meet with weekly to coach through their knitting issues. Is it not my duty to introduce new knitters to such events? Pay it forward, so to speak. Over and over I heard them saying things like 'Overwhelming. WOW! I would have never imagined... Such fun to take the uninitiated to a show like the Frolic.
We shopped together but I managed to acquire only these few items - two new shawl patterns by Cabin Fever and a ball of Cotton Tweed for a baby sweater -
before it was time to leave my 'students' to meet up with some blogger friends.
Marie, Sandra and her blogless friend Susan. We chatted non-stop for an hour, before I had to call an end to the fun for fear my group might think I had abandoned them.
Knitters are not known for an early quit, so on the way home from Toronto, we stopped at True North Yarns in Barrie and there I scooped another deal on their 25% off sale.
This is Raffaella by Sirdar. A cotton/acrylic blend that I will use to knit another Cinnie.
I came home tired, happy to have gone to another Frolic, happy to seen some blogger friends, happy to have introduced another group of knitters to a great knitting event and - with only minimal purchases - still money in my pocket. Great day, I'd say.
