Fell off a Wagon Right into Paris…Ontario

Today was a great day! I went to The Needle Emporium in Ancaster and did a little bit of yarn shopping, followed by lunch, then headed off to Paris, Ontario and touristed a bit.

By far the funniest thing I saw today was this in this discount store we walked by. It is this crazy huge picture, a holographic one that sort of moves/glints in different lights and angles. It is a moose…spitting or vomiting or something, some kind of misty stuff.

There is also a really neat linen shop there and we found these lovely mittens and as my fingers were cold as I forgot my mittens at home..snapped them up.

They also had these awesome big long needles that I have been hunting down for plush-making. They are actually for all sorts of other things like weaving, making rugs, mattress stitching, etc.

We then stopped into Brown Dog Coffee for a yummy latte (I had the Dalmation latte) and apple fritters (made on site) and french vanilla ice cream. It was needless to say, to die for!

Then on the way out we stopped at Mary Maxim in which a little bit of yarn and some cable hooks were acquired..then we made a stop at Knit One Bead Two in Oakville, Ontario which I find to be a really classy and nice shop. It makes me want to knit in natural colours and fibers all the time. They carry a lot of Americo yarns and Habu and really interesting imports you don’t often see in yarn shops. The beads are also beautiful and it has a very contemporary style and atmosphere that is warm and friendly. So, what was the stash enhancement damage you ask? Well…you be the judge on the naughty ….
