Hi! I'm in Calgary too. I've just begun knitting a few weeks ago, and just stumbled upon this site. So far, I've made a couple scarves, a couple hats, and I'm half way through my second mitten. The first one turned out perfect - I can't wait to actually wear them out!
Do you know of any good yarn stores in Calgary? I've just been going to Michael's, but I don't really like going there. The yarns are way in the back, and the aisles are so narrow and check out lines are so long. It would be nice to go someplace else, maybe with different selections.
