Most of the shops we visited were along Queen Street, one of the cityʼs main drags, but Knitomatic is a cute one worth a visit just outside of the city center. We were won over by the little blue building nestled into a residential meighborhood. It might look small, but they still manage to host a variety of in-store classes.

Now, maybe itʼs because we were absolutely freezing and wanted to warm up, but our eyes were instantly dazzled by all of the super chunky yarns- soft colors from Wooly Bully, and vibrant ones Lamb's Pride. Other brands stocked include Canadian products by Handmaiden and Fleece Artist, as well as Mission Falls, Misti Alpaca, Nashua, Rowan, Cascade, Noro, Scheepjes, Wildfoote, and Manos del Uruguay.

If you need just one more reason (and it's a good one!) to head out to Knitomatic, a few blocks away (just across from the subway station) you can find an outpost for Leonidas, our favorite Belgian chocolatiers. Yum!
