I have just learned, not two minutes ago that there is a new yarn shop half a block away from me. Can you believe it? HALF A FREAKING BLOCK!
I haven't been yet, but it's on today's agenda after a shower and sewing buttons on my fourteen and finding something dope I've knitted to wear for added street cred. As if I'm walking into a new yarn shop with out a spectacular self-made piece! The shop is called the Purple Purl and it's located at 1162 Queen Street East at Jones next to the park. I see from their website that they hold a stitch and bitch on Tuesday nights which is great because I know I do shit-all on tuesday nights ATM.. I mean.. besides knitting by myself+TV... why knit alone if you don't have to?
For your visual entertainment today these are some earlier pictures of my fourteen. Fourteen I used a handspun tweed in an undyed natural cream to compliment the broiche. Fourteen It's so soft and beyond luxe to knit it on golden needles. Fourteen looooooove it <3 <3 Fourteen on Golden Needles ps. this is my favorite tea Favorite Tea

Oh, enjoy Purple Purl! I had a shop there when it opened but I haven't had a chance to get back since. Darned commuting. :) Fourteen looks very cozy, I want to make one of those myself for a gift.

Another knitter i read ("And she knits too!") also mentioned living right by a shop called the Purple Purl. Perhaps you and she are neighbors!

martha, fourteen is the ultimate in coziness and LAZINESS!! It takes a couple of hours to kniit and the sewing is oh so minimal- just the way I like it!

I think I've made about 5 by now for other people in various stash yarns but this is the pièce de résistance!
