Yes, I took my knitting with me and did get some done.
Below are some pictures of me with my knitting while on my adventure. Can you guess where I was in each picture?

How often have you wondered what size your knitting needles are because the size is worn off or you are using old needles which could be US Or UK sizing. This nifty needle gauge by Clover covers a wider range of sizes that most gauges. It goes from 2 mm to 15 mm! There is also a handy ruler along the bottom edge.
These extra small stitch markers come in a unique triangle shape. This allows the knitting needle tip to slip in easily when passing the markers from one needle to another. These stitch markers are ideal for sock knitters as they fit over needles form 2 mm to 3.5 mm and will not stretch your stitches as larger makers often do.
Highlighter tape - I love it! Just put this removable tape where you need it on your pattern. No need to write on your patterns again to keep track of where you are. Comes in blue and yellow.

Take a close look at the picture and you will see a craft item that I am sure will bring back pleasant childhood memories. Did you find the corkers? There are 2 different ones. One looks like a bumblebee and the other looks like it is made of crystal. No more wooden spools and nails! There is also a fun book to teach kids what they can make with their corking. There is also a corking kit which includes a corker, yarn, and directions - can you find it?
For those wishing to learn to knit - check out the fun kids knitting needles. One kind is pink with happy faces on the ends and the other has one red needle and one blue needle with little cat faces on the ends.
There are several knitting books geared for kids. They each are a bit different because as we know - no two kids are alike.
Did you see the Knifty Knitter? That is a great name because that is exactly what it is - it is nifty, easy to use, and you end of knitting "something".
All the kids need now is some yarn in their favourite colour. As you know, we have rooms of yarn for them to pick from.
Now is the time to bring back childhood memories and pass on the tradition by teaching someone special to cork or to knit.
Please note that we will be
CLOSED this Saturday - JULY 10th!
