1  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / CANADA / Where to shop for yarn in store and online Canada & Toronto on: August 30, 2014 10:12:31 AM
Hi There,

I'm in Toronto and looking for good quality acrylic, cotton, blends that do not contain wool. Romni is 90% wool and generally doesn't sell acrylic and Michael's and Walmart generally sell the cheapest scratchiest yarns.

Does anyone know of a shop that has a good selection in store?

I'd be happy to shop online, but worry about additional charges after shipping and not actually being able to see the yarn.

Any advice is appreciated!

My 6 year old daughter recognized this!  She loves it!

That is really sharp!  Great colour and pattern!  I've been knitting for years and my first disastrous attempt at a sweater has scared me off ever since.  I feel very inspired by your success Smiley

So this was my first time and I was following instructions from the internet and working with a 5 year old so all things considered I consider it a win...

Wish I could get away with this at work... Cheesy

Same here!  Sadly I am a bit past the age of having truly fun hair and I'm completely incapable of braiding these into my own hair.

My daughter absolutely LOVES these!  She's only 5 so I didn't have to make too many for her thin hair.  I'll post picks when I get her hair braided up!

Babukatorium:  I've learned how to make felted dreads and I figured out how to make the crocheted ones, but I'm not sure how you created the roving dreads from the last picture.

I think your spider fan fish is pretty awesome!  It's like a character in an anime movie.  My favourite part of your project is the drawing your daughter did!  I love love love how she wrote out shuneal - kids are smarter than the english language Smiley

I love it!  I love Doctor Who!

But I'm wondering if the Tardis is really cut off or is it just the way the hoodie is sitting?

I really love the colours you've done that one in Kristel! 

My sister has taken over my attempt and she just told me she finished an octagon, but it is 2 inches larger than mine!  I had forgotten to take my finished blocks to her when I took her the yarn and the pattern so she didn't have a reference piece when she got started.  Oddly I do think her hook looked larger than mine even though it's supposed to be 5.5 mm like mine.
