Hey guys, I hope you all had an amazing weekend and are staying warm as this cold weather is surrounding us! I wore my newly knitted sweater this weekend and it was so warm and cozy and it was made using yarn we bought from EweKnit Toronto so I will be talking about this amazing store today!
We wanted Gursheel’s mom to try a new hobby so we decided knitting was it. She has knit in the past so it wouldn’t have been a completely new thing to try. Gursheel and I were secretly excited because we LOVE knitted things but neither of us are talented enough to make anything.
Gursheel found a bunch of knitting books and he was so excited he would read for hours before going to sleep. He learned about different knitting patterns and needles and started researching everything to do with knitting.
The first thing we needed to get was the tools and yarn for the first project, so obviously we went to Michaels, the only craft store we knew of. But we could hardly find any of the supplies listed in the book for the first project and all the yarn at Michaels seemed synthetic.
We then tried searching online but most of the knitting stores were American. So then I thought there much be a knitting store in Toronto and there were multiple. So, we decided to go to Toronto one day to check them all out. Unfortunately, the date we chose, was a holiday weekend, and only EweKnit Toronto was open so we went there and it was AMAZING! Oh, and since Cafe Cancan was not to far away we also got to visit this amazing restaurant. You need to check out my review here!
As soon as I walked in I was in AWE! If anyone knows me, I love organized places and this place was organized so beautifully, I could’t stop staring!!!
EweKnit Toronto is a crafting store that has yarn, fabric and tools for knitting, sewing, embroidery and weaving! It is such a cool store, that even you are not into crafting, you will be in awe of its beauty! It is like a yarn museum!
Anyways, other the beautifully organized yarn and fabric, the colours of the yarn were endless and the quality was amazing! The store owner was so friendly and helpful, she helped us find all the needles and tools we needed. We then just had the difficult decision to choose a colour for the first project.
They had a discounted/sale section downstairs so we chose a beautiful purple colour for Gursheel’s mom to knit into a sweater for me! We were unsure how much yarn would be needed, so we bought 7 bundles and the store owner told us we could exchange it if we had any left over.
A couple of days ago my mother in law finally finished making the sweater and I LOVE IT!! It is so beautiful and warm and the yarn feels so soft on my skin. My mother in law also made me fingerless gloves with the leftover fabric to match the sweater she knit. And we still had a bundle of yarn leftover.
I’m planning on going back to EweKnit Toronto to exchange the yarn for yarn for a cardigan that Gursheel wants his mom to make next!
I am going to love going to EweKnit Toronto on a regular basis so Gursheel’s mom can make us beautifully knitted sweaters, cardigans, gloves and scarves. They are going to be essential for the cold weather that will soon be upon us in Toronto!
And this is the beautiful sweater my mother in law knit for me! It’s so beautiful!! And so so warm 🙂
Do any of you knit? What is your favourite thing to knit?
