Newmarket Yarn Crawl
Nadine (and here on Ravelry) and I had our own yarn crawl on Friday. We headed out of Toronto north to Newmarket. Our first stop was Serenity Knits owned by two charming ladies, Karen and Beth.
We had a great visit, bought some yarn and got a lunch suggestion to go to Maids' Cottage in downtown Newmarket.
We would never have found this great spot as the restaurant is hidden at the back of the bakery counter. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and both indulged in their famous butter tarts. Our server said she gave us the pretty tea cup saucers for our tarts since we were so nice.
Then it was off to Unwind to meet Michele.
This yarn mecca was voted best yarn shop in 2013.
More yarn purchases.
Last stop, Needles and Knits on the way back home in Aurora.
This is the place to go when you run out of yarn while stash busting. Included with the current yarns this shop stocks some discontinued yarns that could be valuable in a yarn crisis situation.
Tove was friendly and welcoming.
This shop even has a cat who is happy to be pet by yarn addicts so I felt right at home away from my three furry companions.
Many thanks to Nadine for a lovely day!
