It took about three weeks, but Lhiabelle and I finally managed to make it to Calgary’s newest knitting store, The Loop. The Loop is run by Annie, who previously worked (managed?) both Make One Yarn Studio in Bridgeland, and The Knitting Room off Crowchild Trail. Annie’s new digs are a bit smaller than I would […]
