New Yarns

Bloom
Beautiful DK yarn, a blend of cotton, viscose and linen. The fibres contraict each other with an exciting result. The shiny viscose just has a subtle pop and the colours are luscious! A 150g ball with 450 metres, it will make a lovely small scarf.LA1010-Model-Img-265x265

 

RainbowConfetti
Great yarn for knitting light scarves for summer. A cotton/acrylic blend in a DK weight. Tension from 22-28 sts depending on pattern. This ball of striping yarn is 800 metres! Enough to make this triangle scarf below on 5.5 mm needles. Free pattern download here

Summer knitting – a great time for small projects and a chance to knit up some early Christmas gifts for stocking stuffers. Ravelry has some great patterns for dishcloths and hand towels. We brought it a great assortment of multi-coloured Sudz Crafting Cotton

Closed for the Easter Long Weekend

Hello everyone,

This  weekend is a great time to reconnect with family, get away from your usual routine, join your faith family in  worship or spend time knitting. We’d like for all our volunteers who work so hard all year long in the shop to have the opportunity to do. So this weekend on Friday and Saturday we will be closed. We’re usually closed on  Sundays and Mondays so we’ll see you all next Tuesday, April 23rd.

Have a wonderful weekend and God bless you all!

Once Upon a ASheep will be closed Saturday, November 10th

We hope you all have a great weekend as you remember those who served our country bravely and made the ultimate sacrifice. As usual, we don’t open on long weekends to give our hard working volunteers a break.

I love this free pattern for a knitted poppy. You can find this pattern on Ravelry.


 

Road Work Woes

 

472302213-612x612

If you’ve been to the shop lately you’ll notice that there is road work happening on Lougheed Hwy, right in front of our shop. So far they’ve been working on the north side of the street but will soon be tearing up the road and sidewalk on our side of the street.

Many of the shops along the Lougheed have been losing business due to the inconvenience to customers in trying to get into the various shops.

However, we know knitters are FEARLESS and will climb any mountain to get YARN! But we want to make sure you’re rewarded for your dedication and loyalty to Once Upon a Sheep. 

10% Customer Appreciation Sale

On ALL Yarns and Needles

*This is in addition to the PK Discount

How to Get to Us:

Parking in back accessed by 225th St or 226th/Royal Cres. Ring bell by left door and someone will let you in.

Thank you so much for shopping with us through this trying time. I know that our customers appreciate why we do what we do –

  • for the love of knitting/crocheting and YARN
  • to help send children to summer camp

Sincerely,

All the volunteers at Once Upon a Sheep Yarn Shop
