Quickly but enjoyably

This past weekend I had the good fortune to make a quick trip to Montreal, with a good friend who knows the city well enough that he might as well be a tour guide. Thanks to some snap sales-catching we got ourselves first-class train tickets there and back, and spent the weekend enjoying food and conversation and walking around the old city.

It was a real highlight to be able to meet up with Tanis and her husband Chris, for brunch and chatting and talk of more collaboration. They are great people and put a lot of fabulous effort into making their corner of the yarn world awesome. Looking forward to more knitting awesomeness in 2011!

It was a chilly weekend to be sure, which certainly made regular stops for food or beverages all the more enjoyable. I had a lovely time and would be happy to visit again. (Note to self: go back with a bigger shopping budget. And more French skills.) Thanks, Montreal!

  8. I love Montreal! Lucky you that you got to visit for the weekend. I made the same promise to myself about improving my French skills after visiting there.

    Ohhh. Montreal is hands down one of my favorite cities in North America (tied with Vancouver but, for totally different reasons).. I must make a trip soon.
