Knitter’s Frolic : The Haul
What a terrific Mother’s Day present from my hubby!! A whirlwind trip to Toronto for the Knitter’s Frolic! Because the kids are far away in Vancouver, and since my mom passed a few years ago, Mother’s Day just hasn’t been the same. So, Erwin and I always try to get away with a “little” day trip, to do some crafty shopping (well, me, not Erwin), have a nice meal out etc. This has worked out for a nice Mother’s Day the last couple of years.
Anyhow, this year Erwin said that he would drive me to Toronto for the Frolic for my Mother’s Day gift!
We got up at 5AM, and we were out the door at 6AM for the 4 hour drive to TO. A quick stop at Tim Hortons for coffee, and we were on our way!
Erwin dropped me off at the front door of the Frolic at around 10:30AM, and he headed off for a nearby cineplex to see Ironman 2.
The Frolic was more than I imagined. So many vendors…so much yarn goodness. There were a whole bunch of classes - I would have loved to have taken classes, but I just could not swing getting there for the morning classes, nor did I want to get tied up with an afternoon class because of the pending 4 hr drive back home (plus stop for dinner somewhere).
Here is my haul:
All in all, it was a pretty terrific day, and then the icing on the cake was both kids calling me nice and early Sunday!
