Hello Yarn Lovers,

Check out my fun new tote bag!

I got the tote this morning when I signed up to do Yarn Along the Rockies, which is a yarn crawl involving 21 different yarn shops across the Colorado Front Range.  The goal is to go to each of the yarn shops and collect stamps to prove you were there.  There are also raffles and fun little gifts at each store.  If you collect stamps at all 21 shops by September 16th you will be entered to win a grand prize of hundreds of dollars worth of yarn and knitting supplies.

I went to three stores today and I realized that with or without the prizes it’s pretty fun to see all the different places there are to buy yarn and take knitting classes around Denver.  I’m hoping to have a few more favorite stores by the time this is all wrapped up.

Have you ever participated in an event like this?  Was it fun?

I’ll let you know how it goes!

      That’s so fun, Tiffany, hopefully we’ll run into each other along the way! My goal is to get to all of them but I don’t know if I’ll succeed either. I hope we both win something! xoxo
