Went to Knit Knackers, on Bank Street in Ottawa , to drop off some more of my pins and stitch markers.  The first thing you see when you walk into the store is Emily and her beautiful smile.  She works there full time but is also a designer. Check out her blog:

The second thing you see at Knit Knackers is Pandora the angora bunny!!!!!! OOOOOOhhhhhhh look at all that spinable fiber !!!!  Where is my spindle when I need it ?  I was messing with my camera and when I looked up she had hopped over to me to say hello .  A perfect moment in time for me.

Then there is this spinning circle all set up and ready to go ......quick someone bring me the bunny !!!

But, before leaving I just had to have these handmade ceramic buttons by Laura Sheppard.  I could save them for a hand knit sweater or use them on my tunisian crochet pulse warmers that I have been making.  Or I could simply keep them on the card and enjoy them as art !

And I couldn't resist driving through Chinatown to see this magnificent archway.
What a feast for the eyes!
