Pudding Yarn

I've now visited all the yarn stores in the Calgary area, all that I'm aware of at any rate. If I've missed any, please let me know. The latest one I visited was Pudding Yarn. I went there a few years ago on a visit to Calgary, so this was actually a re-visit.

The store is small, but obviously popular judging by the number of people who were shopping.  There was much more yarn than I remembered from my first time there, filling the shelves and spilling out. A great deal of it is from my favorite company, Rowan. This alone gives me a great reason to visit again.  Now I now where to go for my Rowan fix!  One small ball (25 g) of Rowan Fine Tweed followed me home.  It reminds me of some of Rowan's early yarns that I liked so much.  This ball, a deep red color (#369, Bainbridge) is just for swatching.  I have no doubt that one day I'll use this yarn for a project... in the distant future.

One of the things that I like about Canadian yarn stores is the availability of straight knitting needles.  I prefer straights most of the time, depending on the project, of course.

Other than the small ball of yarn, one other item came home with me, a Peep Sheep rubber coaster from Herdy.  Isn't it cute?  Now tell me, how was I supposed to resist?  It was difficult enough trying to decide on the color.
