I seem to post most (and mostly) on Saturdays ... which is odd, because most of the blogs I read regularly take their weekends off (I have a husband who works occasional weekends, and I find I have time when he's not home to do some blog catching up - plus, I don't work many weekends, so it is easier to blog on a Saturday than it is on, say for example, a Wednesday, where I have Knit Night and work).
So here I am again, third post of today ... why am I back, you ask? I already posted 2 FOs , and you know I am not that fast a knitter to have yet another FO.
I am back because I need help/advice ... T and I are travelling to Montreal by train soon, and I want some advice on what to do while we are there.
Have you been to Montreal? What were the things that you did that really stood out in you mind as wonderful? We don't have a clue where to go for a yummy meal, what to do for entertainment, or where the coolest shops are ... so give it to me! I want to know what we should be doing and where we should be sure to not miss, so we will have a memorable vacation. And you know, I don't have a clue where to go shopping for yarn ... and a girl can't hit a strange city without being armed with that bit of rudimentary knowledge ... help a sista out!
Since I missed my bloggiversary (yeah, I am a slacker -- the blog turned 2 on Jan. 10th, and the date passed unnoticed ... heh! heh! oopsie!), I am willing to turn this into a quickie contest, as we are leaving soon (ie; this week) on our trip ... lemme know what I CAN'T miss out on seeing/doing/eating, and I'll enter you in a draw for this skein of Cherry Tree Hill, Supersock (420 yards), in Spring Frost colourway
(on my monitor the colours are fairly accurate - it is mostly mauve, with light green, pink, a bit of peach, and a bit of blue)... very springy feeling, and perfect for socks or baby knitting (I have a lot of people in my life right now who are in the 'family way" so am much more conscious now that sock yarn is also delightful as baby yarn! Who'da thunk it!?!)
To enter the contest ... simply post your recommendations in the comments of THIS post ... I will be drawing tomorrow night (told you it was a quickie!) at 9:30 p.m. Nova Scotia time (January 25th).
If you haven't been to Montreal before, you can enter too - google Montreal and tell me what you would want to do/eat/see if you were going.
Thanks for the help, and good luck!
