I Love Knitting

The title isn't a proclamation of what you already know to be true. It's stop 8 on the Colorado Yarn Tour -- a new yarn store in Denver named I Love Knitting. (I was lucky enough to be at a work meeting this week literally around the corner from this store, and so took a mini detour on the way home.)

I was greeted by a table of knitters as I entered the store. And then happily was left to browse, stroke, ooh and aah over the various yarns.

The usual suspects were there in abundance -- Rowan, Noro, Debbie Bliss, Berroco, Sublime etc etc... Although this is the first store in the area that I've seen that carries Be Sweet products. Oh how excited I was to see the Be Sweet yarn. But not nearly as excited as when I saw some of the Be Sweet handbags. Aren't they pretty? And that's not all - Be Sweet supports job creation programs that help empower female artisans in South Africa.

It was a tough choice deciding on a yarn for the Colorado afghan, but I settled on some Berroco Seduce that I've been eyeing up. It's a lovely dark chocolate colour with blue flecks and I think this will be a nice addition to the colour scheme. Now I really need to get knitting some of the squares...

Looks like a great store! Maybe we can take a trip in a couple of weeks to visit the Loveland and Louisville area. :)

Miss you! :)

Love the looks of this shop. Be sweet is nice stuff too. I wish we had more local yarn store stuff going on here, but not so much 3 out of 4 are closing. :(

you had better talk to Stacey before you try using that Seduce. She had an ... interesting time trying to knit with it last night!
