Proper WOYWW #123 - LANDED

Now this is ACTUALLY a picture of me chocheting on the Aeroplane.  (Can you see the overhead lockers?)  HONESTLY,  I am under that mass of blanket. 

I managed to to do one round on the way there (took about 2 hours - but I was watching a film aswell) and one and a half rounds on the way back (that took about five hours - not really but it felt like ages!).

While I was in Canada I took a few pics.

This was the window of a really lovely looking knitting shop - it was closed unfortunately - but they were backing the pink ribbon Breast Cancer Care and the pink knitted things are breasts - how cute.

I picked these free kntting patterns up in Walmart and had to buy some wool to go with them - of course.

And these little beauties I found in a Thrifty shop - aren't they just adorable.  I thought I could use them to sew onto things I make for my boys.  75cents - that's all.

We went to Jack Astors for a bite to eat and on each table was a length of brown paper and a tub of pencils - so we did a bit of drawing.  This was supposed to be a Manga drawing but it went a bit wrong.  I even shamedly advertised my blog on there by writing it all over the tablecloth.  WHAT FUN.

This is the shop I have been dreaminig about owning (or renting) when we move.  Don't know what will be in it?  A coffee shop, a crafting shop, a cake shop - or maybe all three.

Love the crochetting and the knitted boobs are just brilliant though mine may need more wool than that hehehe.

I think it should be a craft shop with a cafe attached - and do you need an assistant??? Knitted boobs are fantastic :)
Hugs, LLJ xx

Wow it all sounds so exciting, it looks like you had a great time. Your blanket looks amazing and what a great idea to do it on the plane. Let's face it, there's nothing better to do!
Good luck with your dream.

Definitely a combo of all three - my idea of heaven is to go to a crafting shop, browse, then go have a latte & cake while I deliberate over what to spend my hard-earned on :) Love the shots taken on your visit - knitted boobs, whatever next! Your blanket must be getting quite heavy to tote around with you. Have a good weekend. Elizabeth x #53

You are one determined lady to crochet through a flight- good idea!
Love the idea of a coffee/craft/cake shop. Sounds brill.
Have a lovely weekend.

Great job on the crochet.
Love that little store front and I like the idea of coffee a snack and crafting.
I met a wonderful lady last year and helped with a BC fundraiser. She actually took bras and knitted as well as donate boobs to help the ladies in Mexico. The women in remote rural areas have very little after care. I felt very happy to have been a part of the event.
Okay thanks for reading that book. and for stopping by

Ooo well done! I'm surprised they let you take the crochet needle on the flight! I like the sound of your shop - craft, cake, coffee! Perfect! Kim
