Our first stop was at Yarn Arts in Parker. This was one of the shops we had never been in before. We were told we were not allowed to take pictures.......so I have none to show. Oh well. Trust me......your NOT missing anything.
The skein I purchased is from a local alpaca farm.
From there we headed down the road to The Knitting Habitat in Aurora. This was also a new shop for us. First impression upon opening the door....AWESOME!!!. I highly recommend stopping in and checking them out.
I purchased the pattern to make the cute slippers above. The skein of yarn I grabbed from here is Colinette Skye in the Summer Berries colorway.
From there we headed on down to one we usually shop in.....Colorful Yarns in Centennial. They are open on a Monday so we decided that was good enough for us. I have nothing but good things to say about this shop. It's on my list of favorites. The selection and service here is outstanding!! This is another one I highly recommend stopping in if your in the neighborhood.
The skein I got from Colorful Yarns is one of my favorites so far. It is Fleece Artist Sea Wool. I don't know the color but I am calling it Chocolate Cherry Jubilee. Mmmmmmm. I also grabbed two new books by Erika Knight.
Then it was on to our last shop for the day. We headed on over to String, A Knitting Boutique in Highlands Ranch. I have only shopped there two times. The unique thing about this store is that they display their yarns by color. They also have a large sale area with some really good finds.
The skein I got from here is Noro Kureyon. I also managed to grab a skein of Unikat to add to my personal stash. The colorway does not have a name but it is gorgeous!! I also grabbed a go knit pouch. Sam has one and for some reason I always think of stealing it when I see it. LOL!! Now I have my own.
Overall the day was a huge success. We were able to get a skein from each shop. I think the toughest part is choosing a color scheme. I seem to be leaning towards berry colors. I am thinking shades of reds, purples, blues, and some browns thrown in for good measure. I do have to say after seeing the Unikat skein I wish I had seen that first and then picked my colors based on that. It has sea foam, copper, chocolate brown, dark green, and yellow.
End of the Day Haul!
