Still, we did manage to walk through part of the neighborhood, and as luck would have it, we passed right by an adorable local yarn shop, Lettuce Knit.
The area in front of their store features a rustic yarn-bombed fence. Awesome.
Inside, they offer a fantastic selection of yarns from the Canadian Handmaiden and Fleece Artist company, madelinetosh, Socks that Rock, Indigo Moon, as well as many smaller yarn dyers like Rain City Knits and Yummy Yarn Studios.
It was the perfect opportunity for me to snag a few skeins of the Socks that Rock yarn that I've heard so many good things about. I picked up 3 skeins of their lightweight sock yarn.
The woman working at the shop was as lovely as the shop itself. If I ever find myself in Toronto again, I will be heading straight for this place, and I would be likely to crash one of their stitch nights!
