Montreal for a Millisecond
I travel quite a bit to Montréal, zooming 5.5 hours across Quebec and Maine. I rarely get to stay very long, usually just overnight. I've tried several times to visit yarn shops or this time a crafty little shop but I am always thwarted! Atelier Woodenapples was closed unexpectedly, but I did get a nice shot of the tired Birthday Girl with her new Mohair and Alpaca Instant Mittens. I also made her some Llama and Wool ones out of a variegated yarn. I always like variegated yarn in the hank so much better than the finished knitting....which always looks so kindergarten to me. In any case they were fast and will be warm. Need to be, still TONS of snow! Crazy parking in Montréal too, you just back up into a snowbank and call it good!
