Out and About

One of the local antique shops was supposed to be having a garage sale today, so I decided to let myself out for a bit this morning. Turns out their blog post was wrong... but it was nice to get out.

I walked from the antique store to Dollarama to pick up more magnet sheets, but either they were out, or I just couldn't find them (as is usually the case). There was quite a long line at the till, so I didn't bother asking someone to help me find them.

Then I walked from Dollarama to the new LYS, "Where The Wool Things Are". They don't have much stock yet, but the stock they do have is *lovely* stuff. I like encouraging LYSs, and so bought some yummy (but pricey) yarn, Terra:

I plan to make this yarn into mittens.

Since I was on Albert Street anyway, I decided to see if this branch of Artists' Emporium had what my mom wanted for mother's day. (I was at their main branch on Thursday, but they didn't have it.) Turns out the downtown branch doesn't exist any more. Whoops. There's another art supply store downtown, but by then my feet were *quite* sore, so I decided it was time to go home. (I'm beginning to think my feet may not like my new sandals, even though they feel nice. I wish I knew what was up with my feet! I hate sore feet!)

Oh... while I was looking for the art store, I saw these really cool carved steps:
