A Festive Occasion

Today I went into the big city with Kim to pay an afternoon visit to the Purple Purl. It was a Very Important Occasion indeed, as they are celebrating their 2nd Anniversary as a yarn shop. Happy anniversary and many happy returns, Jennifer and Miko! It’s hard to imagine the Toronto knitting scene without you. Lots of fabulous yarn, friendly faces, and tea and goodies…what more could a knitter want?

What a wonderful and cumulative transformation the shop has had since their (already welcoming) opening day. Today they were vibrant and bustling.

I sometimes forget how many friends I actually have made in the knitting world, but I always remember pretty quickly again once I’m at the Purl. I am just so pleased that they are a part of Toronto’s wonderful knitting community and that they are thriving. The world needs knitting shops, and knitters.

And sometimes also cake.

So all in all, not a bad Sunday afternoon. Happy Anniversary, Purple Purl! Are you sure you’ve only been here 2 years? It feels like more.
