Girls Night Out on the City (Knitting)

Katie and I finally were able to go check out a new (to us) yarn shop. With busy family schedules, snow days and sick children, it has been a challenge to find time to go exploring new shops. It was well worth wait. We went to City Knitting. What a fun place. Here's a look at what we found. But before I can start on this I should finish my linen hat - I am off to knit!

**** While Anna is off knitting with all our new stash, I just wanted to add a couple of things about why this was a great trip! I LOVED the shop. First of all I love that the yarn was set up to find by weight! That just made things soooooooo much easier to find. We also happened to be there on knit night and there was a great group of folks. All ages and men, and women. I love that!

They had lots of finished projects to look at and to get some ideas for. There was lots of project you find on Knitty. It is great to see some projects actually knit up and you can see them in person! They also offer lots of great classes.

All in all it was a great night. I am very excited to dig into what we found and to let the creativity flow! I also discovered that I am on a red kick right now, NOT to sure what that is all about. I will say it makes for some interesting color combos right now!

~Cheers (Katie)

That sounds like such fun! I've been meaning to hit the craft store on their class nights, but just haven't. I want to learn to knit - I already get excited about yarn! lol

I'm just learning how to knit. If you look at what I make, you can tell :)

Your trip sounds like mine to the city when I was in all the bead shops. I was so overwhelmed I didn't know where to begin!
