Nooks for knitting continued
Next stop on our tour of god knitting spots in the city is...
Mercury is my all time favourite spot to knit in the city; I’ve spent many hours stitching and sipping away in this place. Mercury is an organic espresso bar in Leslieville (Queen st. East between Carlaw and Logan). At first glance you may think I've sent you to the wrong part of town, but one sip of merc. coffee and you'll be thanking me!
• Lighting: light in here is dim, so be sure to sit close to a window if you’re working with a dark colour. The location has large south and east facing windows that let a lot of light in, and a comfy little patio for those who prefer sunnier outdoor knitting.
• Music: another thing you should know about Mercury is that the folks their love music, and they know an awful lot about it! Music at Mercury is loud, but always good!
• People: Anyone and everyone who loves good organic coffee!
• Best for knitting: Socks! Mercury is a very busy place, where a large and complex project would take up too much space.
*also, who else on earth can pour your foam into hearts? (sometimes I get flowers too!)
