|Julie posed for me outside Cowgirl Yarn in Laramie.|
First stop was Cowgirl Yarn in Laramie, WY to start the trip off on the right foot...I mean needle. What a cute shop!! Loved it. I found a tiny crochet hook there, which I needed for one of the classes in Estes. I could have picked up yarn too...because I saw so many pretty skeins...but decided I better pace myself. A couple of doors down was a great little restaurant which was perfect for lunch, and then we were on our way to Ft. Collins, CO.
We had heard great things about two yarn shops in Ft. Collins, so we had to search them out. First we found "The Loopy Ewe." Wonderful shop...and it had every kind of yarn you could want! Sensory overload!!! I didn't have a specific project in mind...and I reminded myself again that the Wool Market was still ahead! However, I found some Kollage square needles on sale, and I did purchase some. Can't wait to try them out. Have any of you tried them? Any comments?
As you can see, the canyon is narrow, and there were very few pullouts, so I took pictures through the windshield while Julie drove. I'm kind of amazed they turned out this well.
Estes is nestled in the mountains ...so pretty. (Kind of reminded us of Jackson Hole.) Our classes were held in a high school building very near the fairgrounds, where the Wool Market was set up. Thank goodness for Julie and her iPhone to navigate our trip. We found everything quite easily!
