Passionknit: LYS 2015

The Passionknit storefront
The folks at Passionknit are always so welcoming to The TTC Knitalong. They were one of the earliest participants signing on in 2006. For the past two years they've unveiled a brand new original pattern on the day and offered it as a special kit. 2013's pattern the TTC Mitts by the store's Patti Waters, was a huge hit among several of the Knitalong captains (I wear mine all the time!)

Once inside this lovely knitting boutique, the stunning array of store samples are sure to inspire any knitter. The Passionknit team all have crazy skills and awesome colour sense. They make great in-store kits often using their extensive stock of Koigu as inspiration. Other yarns carried include Queensland Collection, Mirasol, and Malabrigo. There is also online shopping available on the website. 

The store offers a wide variety of classes to take from beginner techniques to more advanced techniques such as cabling and magic loop. They also offer project specific workshops. They have a lively Ravelry group you can look up for more details.

Passionknit is the Knitalong’s most northerly destination. It’s  on a lovely section of Yonge Street, north of Lawrence where many pretty shops make for a nice stroll. They moved to their current address six years ago but the store has existed in the neighbourhood since 1993.

Closest TTC: Walk six blocks north from Lawrence Station or transfer to the 320 Yonge bus.
