Meet SAM

Calgary is still in clean-up mode after the floods and this will continue for some time.  It's heartwarming to see how everyone is helping.  Every person I've talked to has done something. 

While on vacation a week ago my friend, Sheila, visiting from Denver, and I had a chance to visit lots of yarn stores:  The Loop Kensington, Make One Yarns, Pudding and Gina Brown's in Calgary; Knit & Caboodle in Canmore; the Jacques Cartier qiviut store in Banff and River City Yarns (West and South stores) in Edmonton.  There was also the Fibre Festival in Olds.  It was a yarn-y good week!  Yarn was speaking to both of us.  Yes, we did some sightseeing, too.  How can you not check out the beauty of the area?

Sheila surprised me with a very cool gift, a new friend that I've named SAM.  SAM istands for Sock Monkey and he is project bag...perfect for carrying along a sock in progress.  He will be getting lots of use.  Thanks, Sheila!

I bought a skein of yarn for my Travel Afghan and I'll post about that next time.

Time to go and enjoy the sunshine - finally after so much rain!
