Shoptoberfest was a success! Love visiting Toronto (operative word: visiting); so much to see, nice switch to a faster pace. The faster pace was much required, only a few hours of shopping time by the time I got into town on Saturday.
Did a quick runaround downtown, spending most of my time at H&M, where a few purchases were made. When you live in a government town, stocking up on non-government-worker wear is a must. What a lunatic store though, that H&M, intense patience required. 3 floors of clothes and accessories thrown randomly throughout the store.
No yarn shopping, the closest I came was picking up a few scarves. That's right, I got scarves the easy way. It's ridiculous how much I fell in love with this plain grey acrylic scarf. Of all colours, and all fabrics: grey acrylic. Toronto has some fun yarn shops though, in particular Knitomatic, Lettuce Knit, and the crazy mess at Romni, but I truly don't need any more yarn. Honest. So no yarn shopping this round. Only yarn in the form of finished product is allowed in the house right now, anway.
I keep meaning to post a thank you for all the postcards received from the Postcard Swap.
Clockwise from top, postcards from Lisa, Adam (K-State card), Melanie and Brad (no blogs). Hope the trial run helped iron-out any Swap Bot bugs. Imagine, organizing a swap without even one person having to juggle Excel graphs.
