The hotels close to the water are the most expensive as they are close to the main stuff in downtown, however if you move a few blocks north, they are not as bad. The last time I stayed at a hotel in TO, we actually stayed at a small, old Best Western - it was an old beautiful house that had been converted (and supposedly haunted in one room, but not ours). It was about 10? blocks north of King St - a short cab ride or drive. As for attractions, there are a lot of clubs and pubs if you're into that. Also a lot of restaurants....and TO is Broadway North, so there are a lot of shows too - not sure what's currently playing, but I'm sure you could find something to go to. When are you going? Alison and I will be down there next weekend to see Carbon Leaf play :)

Hi Moze,
I hope everything is well with you. I am looking forward to hearing from you about spinning cotton. Sorry to hear that the knitting is on hold. Maybe there are no restrictions on buying yarn and blogging? Both can be somewhat fulfilling:) Re: lycra sock yarn, check out www.yarndex.com. It is an online encyclopedia of yarn listed by fiber, brand, name, etc...and everything is cross referenced. Maybe this can help you find a suitable yarn. They also list distributers and retailers for each yarn listed. Have fun! No knitting? I'm not knitting! See, no needles, just my computer!

Great projects! Why can't you knit during chol hamoed? People work/travel/etc then. Happy Sukkot, anyway!

but what about hol hamoed? you can knit during that time, no?

I agree with the knitting prozac theory. Ah well. Hag sameach. Off to knit for a few more hours until dinner.

What a fun update. I found an unfinished Cascade Fixation sock when I was looking for something to do at a White Sox game - but unfortuately I had put it away without the pattern which I discovered at the game - err. That had sat on the needles for about 6 mos which is my record. Now the first cast on for #2 has sat around for about a month, because I still haven't downloaded a new copy of the pattern (not to self: TODAY). I enjoy your blog - I don't know why Toronto hotels are so expensive - don't they know they are in Canada???

Oh yeah, it's the next holiday (pant.pant.) The sukkah frame is up and I head out to get some corn stalks and brush later this morning. We have a few new decorations this year. And lots of sukkah hopping over the week end.

I can't remember if Sockotta (although it's half wool, half cotton) has lycra.

Grumperina likes the cotton/lycra sock yarn from this outfit:

There's also Elann Esprit, both solid and variegated at www.elann.com - but it's listed as sport weight and I don't know what international shipping will do to you.

In fact, I just found Grumperina's whole list:

Even my (from my standpoint) very observant bubbe would not have hung up her knitting for the whole week - the yom tov days yes, but that at least cuts you a break in the middle! And there's no shabbat/shabbos during chol hamoed this year either....
