Toronto Knitter's Frolic 2018

This past weekend, my daughter, sis-in-law and I had the chance to go to the Toronto Knitter's Frolic at the Japanese Cultural Centre. We've been going every year since 2014 but did miss last year's because my daughter was in the midst of her First Confession meetings at the time. We had the time to go this year, so yay!

Thank you to my sis-in-law L for driving us there! Even though she's not as obsessive with knitting as I am, she's always willing to go with us. Thank you, L:)

I decided to wear a completely handmade outfit, so I wore this Love Birds sweater I knitted (which you guys have seen before here; DD was also wearing her Love Birds jumper) and I also made this skirt.
Sweater I knitted, skirt I also made using Sew Over It's Ultimate Pencil Skirt pattern, Doc Marten's
I love this skirt, you guys! This is definitely gonna get a lot of wear

The skirt in progress:
I am kinda proud of how I matched the lines on this tartan fabric:D
The invisible zipper is not the best one I've done, but look at that kick pleat, yo! hehe

That's one lovely punchy blue skirt - nicely done Emmy!
I recall your past adventures at this event! It's so cool that your daughter goes with you and how fab is your totally handmade outfit chingu! You need to wear the bright colors more :)

I bet you were the coolest person at the knitting frolic. ;)

Did you notice your daughter's fingers in that photo of both of you? Hmm I wonder where she got that from? :D

Oh my gosh, what a cool event to go to. I am so glad you were able to attend this year. It honestly looks amazing. And I LOVE what you wore! From head to toe, you are a stunner.
Love your look, and those scarves in the sixth photo are awesome!
This probably one of my favourite outfits from you! I am obsessed with the skirt! How‘d you like matching those lines at the seams? haha, my professor always got on people for that! Well done, Emmy!

That is a beautiful skirt! I used to have a similar tartan skirt, I regret letting it go sometimes! I really like the red and blue together too. Sounds like a very fun event you all got to go to :)

Hope you are having a lovely week so far :) We have got some autumn weather here at last so I'm excited I've gotten to layer up a little!
