A Knitted Peace was one of the first yarn stores that I visited when I moved to this area -- it is beautifully outfitted, has a wide variety of yarns, and an extremely talented and friendly staff. I'd definately put it on the 'must visit' list if you are in the area. And if you are looking to learn some new techniques, I can highly recommend their classes.
But ooh the yarn selection... between the Rowan, Habu, Kauni, Mirasol, Noro, Koigu, Elsbeth Lavold etc etc a knitter could happily get lost for hours. And that's exactly what I did today. I arrived early, hung out for the day, and at about 3pm decided that it was about time I left. But only after
Amongst the piles of Noro Kochoran and Elizabeth Zimmerman books that I splurged on today, I also picked up another skein for the Colorado Yarn Tour afghan -- this time in a cream and rusty orange colour. I'm thinking that this might be a nice addition to the beiges and duck egg blues. A little pop of contrasting colour.
As the weather warms up here in Colorado, I'm looking forward to dragging some of my knitting buddies to venture further afield and check out some other Colorado yarn stores...
