Toledo, Ohio Day Trip

My oldest daughter, 17 years old, was selected by the Northern Ohio boys to receive an award at the B'nai B'rith Youth Organization Beau/Sweetheart convention this weekend in Toledo.

I decided to drive up and surprise her at the banquet.

In the afternoon, I visited 2 yarn shops and a bead store.

I purchased a new felted bag by Christine Bylmsa which incorporates cables, called

They had a great sale section with patterns, yarn and this R2 magazine for less than $1.00

I managed to resist purchasing Classic Elite Paintbox and Brown Sheep Burly Spun - both HANDPAINTED and perfect for more felted bags.

Fiberworks is hosting "Toledo's Annual Super Bowl of Knitting", a fundraiser for Mom's House and Toledo Children's Hospital on Sunday, Feb. 4 from 1 - 4 PM with contests, door prizes, demos, free classes and MORE. I just may have to make a trip back !!

I added two books to my wish list:

"RIBBON STYLE" by Cheryl Potter

and "EASY AFGHANS FOR KNITTERS" edited by Jeanne Stauffer

Next stop, Yarn Company,

where the owner showcased her original patterns and samples of purses and scarves knit with Berroco Suede and Snowflake by Sirdar.

I purchased the "PURSE CHECK" pattern whose look and feel resembles the soft and trendy
"UGG" bags.

I also purchased a skein made up of 5 or 6 different fabrics together, enough to make a scarf with some eyelash mixed in ...... by M.P.'s Folly..... "Each ball a unique work of art waiting to happen"....

At Baubles, Bangles & Beads, I made a simple keychain, by selecting some beads to go between the heart.

Quite a fun day for me here in Northern Ohio !!!
