If my back had been feeling good, I would have done the Canmore yarn store and a couple in Calgary. In the end I did stop in Canmore.
Its is a sweet new store, Yarn and Company. She said they are brand new. they are very nice though and she carries a very nice selection of things.
I picked up two patterns from Churchmouse and some yarn to knit one of them in. they had a wonderful selection of PimaLino Lace and I think that is going to work well for something for one of my girls.
After that, honestly, I just wanted to get home. When you are at Canmore it really isn't that long to home, so I drove the rest of the way, but, if I do it again, I am going to make an allowance for overnighting both ways. From here in Edmonton to Vernon, that is a really long drive.
And I will be doing it again.
