Last Thursday I was lucky enough to spend the day with two of my favourite women, my mom and my aunt Judith.
Aren't they beautiful :)
Judith lives in Seattle so I only get to see her once a year for Granny's birthday party in May. This year she and mom made the trek into Toronto to spend the day shopping with me. The goal was to find mom a Mother of the Bride dress and I'm happy to announce that we were successful at the first store we went into! It was a miracle! Mom looks so gorgeous in it and she's requested a shawl to wear to the wedding. I'm going to look for Sea Silk in the appropriate colour when I'm in Halifax next week. Mom in a Sea Silk shawl at my wedding? *swoon*
In addition to dress shopping, I wanted to show Judith some of the hot spots in Toronto so I took her to Crispy Roll for lunch. Heather and Gen, she's from Seattle and is used to good sushi, and she loved Crispy Roll! I just wish I had a picture of the beautiful sushi.
Judith is a knitter so after lunch we headed off to Romni. We had a lot of fun oogling the lovely yarns and Judith left with some stunning Manos Silk Blend to make a few Bainbridges. I don't have pictures of that but I do have pictures of the yummy Noro sock yarn that she bought me!!
I love how different the inside is from the outside.
Look at it shine!
Don't I have the best aunt? :)
Now I'm off to teach my five-year-old cousin how to knit. Wish me luck!
