|Our annual early September activity is the air show. This year we watched it from the Toronto Islands. What a performance!!|
an airplane maneuver in which a plane, starting upward, makes one complete vertical loop.
a ride in an amusement park that simulates this maneuver.

|Naturally, this maneuver reminded me of|
one of my favorite stitches - the loop.
This techniques gives projects a nice depth and texture.

|It also reminded me a lovely yarn store in Halifax, Nova Scotia: an amazing shop girl and beautiful local yarn. And, as you can see in the picture, the knitters' creativity. The entire block was under construction, but it didn't spoil the party. The work platform got a nice graffiti knitting touch - the shop used it to colorfully display knitted and crocheted yarn along with the enthusiasm of its visitors.|
P.S. The name of the shop is The Loop.
Nova Scotia, 2015

|Many yarn stores go creative displaying the yarn they have to offer. When I travel, I always check out the local yarn shops|
and purchase the yarn from
the new place.
|I stopped by at some nice yarn shops in|
Pueblito Los Dominicos (Los Domonicos Village) - a crafts market in a heritage
zone of Santiago.
|KUNA yarn stores are in many cities in South America. I visited two of them and bought yarn in Kuna shops in Chile and Peru.|

|I bought yarn in Vienna as well. They love knitting here. My Austrian yarn project is|
still work in progress.
|Just opened this summer - a lovely shop in Kensington, P.E.I.|
|The yarn is beautifully displayed. I bought very nice wool there.|
