Day out...

I had a wandering day today.  I was at meetings this morning and worked for a few hours in downtown Ottawa.  Then I did the short drive over to Wellington St to Wabi Sabi.  I'm not sure what the name means but it is a yarn and weaving store.  It is a lovely place with a nice stash of yarn and spools of thread. I purchased a cotton Cascade yarn called Ultra Pima that I can tat with....I think.  I also picked up a spool of long linen thread in black.  I went back to get it after picking up a delicious sandwhich from Bread By Us across the street. I realised that linen might be good for jewelry.  There's a stiffness to linen but it isn't scratchy.  I was also very excited that they had safety eyes, something not a lot of places carry.


  1. Sounds like a fun day! Safety eyes?

  2. I look forward to seeing your experiments with Ultra Pima. I'm always on the lookout for another thread/yarn that tats well.

  3. Safety eyes for crochet dools or animals. Hard to find sometimes.
