So, here I am in Calgary and one whole week has gone by. It's been a week of spending some wonderful time with my family, paperwork, getting acquainted with the area, more paperwork and all the things you have to do when you move, especially when you cross a border.
I have yet to visit a yarn shop but that happens tomorrow when I go to Make One. In order to learn more about local shops I visited their websites and signed on to their newsletters when I was still in Denver. Here's where the small world comes into play:
Alana. It sounded familiar and I realized that I'd read her name on the Canadian Living Craft blog a few days ago.
- Alana and I began corresponding and we will be meeting at a yarn store called The Loop next Thursday during the store's knit time. I'll be there at 3pm. Say hi if you are too!
- But wait, there's more. In the conversation with Sivia it turns out that she met a friend of mine from Colorado at Sock Summit in July, Donna Druchunas.
I guess the bottom line is, if you're a knitter, no matter where you go you can always find new friends and, perhaps, meet up with some old ones. You're never really a stranger.
Is there anything in the world like the knitting community, I wonder?
