This weekend Katy and I decided to check out a yarn shop in Denver that we had been hearing about, Lamb Shoppe. (photo snagged from their site)
It was very fun to browse around their shop. I took mental note of a few things... they have a wide selection of Cascade yarns (more than just 220), they have some Malabrigo, a few Zauberballs, and a selection of Rowan yarns as well.
I was most excited to find Elsebeth Lavold's Silky Wool. I have decided I am going to make Manu with this yarn, probably in the Dark Oak colorway. It is unique color, sort of gray, sort of brown, sort of plumb.
Overall this was a neat shop. It also has many drink choices and a coffee bar. There are a lot of tables and chairs so you can enjoy an afternoon of knitting without feeling like you are in the way. Katy and I sat and knit for at least an hour and never felt like we were being an imposition.
So if you are heading towards Denver and feel like taking a rest and a browse in a yarn shop I'd say check out Lamb Shoppe!
