Hittin' the Road


YARN TOUR 2008


Pack your knitting and get your road mix tapes.....errrrr......cd's. I meant to say cd's. Better make that ipod. Oh you know what I mean!!! Because the girls are hitting the road for Yarn Tour 2008. What is Yarn Tour you ask? Well, Nachaele had a great idea.......What if we visited all the yarn stores in Colorado that we have never been to? The rest of us screamed sign me up!! So how many stores you ask? Well......last time I checked there were 28 to be visited.

Our journey begins on Monday, January 21st. We will be visiting The Stitchin Den in Estes Park.

The plan is to purchase a skein of yarn at each shop to make a Colorado blanket.

Stay tuned for pictures of our adventures, info on the stores and the skeins of yarn I purchase.

I been wanting to get back up to Estes (and the Stitchin' Den). Monday might be a good day to go. Maybe I will see you and the crew there!

28 stores! Wow. I had no idea there were so many. I love the idea of a Colorado quilt. Have you guys picked out a pattern you are going to use for it or are you each doing a different one? Either way it sounds like a fun excursion. :D
