Of the grand plans that Rayna and I had made (fiber touring through every town we drove through, which would have meant Montreal, Quebec City, Moncton, Edmunston, Sydney, and St. John’s) we only managed to get in one store, on the second-to-last day of the trip. Crazy!
Cast on Cast off is an adorable little yarn store in St. John’s, and though I wasn’t there for long I felt confident that Rayna was not stuck in a place that, for all it’s loveliness, was going to leave her stranded in a sea of 100% acrylics. The selection is very awesome, and the store has all kinds of cute details.
This guy had a name, and I’ve totally forgotten it, but isn’t it cute?
I’m fairly confident that this was Reggie.
My purchases: 2 self striping sock yarns (one for me, one for Tito), a gift skein from the local Indie dyer and one skein of Sweet Fiber, which I had never used before and now officially rocks my world.
And this is what’s become of that skein so far 🙂 Hopefully an FO shot is coming soon!
