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!

Thank you everyone who came out to our Mad About Ewe Sale! You really are awesome customers and the sale was a grand success.

Now it’s time for us to take an annual inventory and so we will be closed on Saturday, March 2 while we take stock for the next year and get ready for spring and summer.

Thanks again!

Remembrance Day Long Weekend

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



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

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


All the volunteers at Once Upon a Sheep Yarn Shop

Happy Thanksgiving!

IMG_2498All the volunteers at Once Upon a Sheep would like to take this opportunity to wish all our wonderful customers a Happy Thanksgiving. We’ll be taking the weekend off to be with family and friends to celebrate.  God bless you this special weekend.

we’ll be back to regular hours starting Tuesday, October 9th.


What are you knitting this summer?

First, I hope you’ve noticed our NEW LOGO! We’re so pleased with the design and feel it makes a statement about who we are and what we want to communicate. What do you think? (and sorry about that MailChimp email, I’m still figuring out how to get the logo into that!)

Summer has been a time of rest and travel for some of our volunteers. A couple have traveled across Canada to visit family, others off to visit their kids and look after grandchildren and some on camping adventures. I’ve been relaxing at my trailer and seeing time rejuvenating – with my knitting in hand.

I’ve been working on a lovely project called Current by Kephren. I found it on Ravelry, of course. I’m using Malabrigo Silkpaca and it’s so lovely and soft. You’ll be able to see it in the shop this fall as I’m knitting it as a sample. However, I want one for me!  Here are some pics of it so far…

So we’d love to see what you’re knitting. Share your projects with us on our Facebook page on on Instagram and tag us.

Happy knitting/crocheting!
