It's official!

I've left The Knitting Room to spend the next month working on The Loop!

Yarn and accessories are starting to arrive, the painting is almost done, and we're starting to work on a logo and graphics. We hope for a grand opening near May 1, but starting this Thursday we'll be hosting knit nights! It'll be a jobsite, but we'll be there knitting.

See you there!

Ps: In my wisdom, I forgot to include the address! You can find The Loop at 1978 Kensington Road NW, in Calgary. Our phone number is 403-457-3020 (and should be hooked up tomorrow afternoon)

To answer a few questions...

If you are hoping to see anything beyond an empty green room, you'll probably be better off waiting a little while! There are no retail products (or even shelving) on site at present. If you'd like to knit in the midst of chaos and dirt, well come on down! You'll be welcome after 5pm. We currently have about 10 chairs.

Doh, just realized I wrote "dyeing" rather than "dying" to hear more... Well, perhaps that was freudian... I should be dyeing, too!

Yeah! So excited to see this! I drove by the other night, saw the green walls and smiled. I can't wait! Some friends were wondering if you were going to have a small area for kids like Make 1 does to help keep them distracted. Thoughts? I'll see if I can make a Thursday night :)

Heard about you through a friend (Mandie Chandler). I'll help spread the word, if I can. Best of luck!
