This winter we have been overwhelmed by our first year of ringette and hockey.
During one of my daughter's ringette tournaments, I convinced my son to come to the Mary Maxim store that was just a few minutes from where we were.
He is the BEST person to shop with for yarn! He's only 7 and he kept offering to hold my ever-growing pile of yarn. He said "Mom, as long as I can carry it, you can buy it". Well, we loaded him up and all his bends too (you know, armpits, elbows, neck) so he wouldn't drop it.
One of these purchases was a sweater kit of a knit hockey sweater in a beautiful bulky yarn.
