I had to drive up to Denver last week to pick up my father-in-law and thought the long drive was worthy of a ‘yarn’ stop. Afterall, I could not be so close to Boulder and NOT shop in my very favorite yarn store, Shuttles, Spindles & Skeins!
My father-in-law is a good sport and has always had an interest in my craft pursuits. We saw an ADORABLE Dale of Norway Baby Yoke Cardigan on display and he ‘enabled’ me to purchase the kit by simply agreeing that it would look easily as adorable on his great-grandaughter……..my great-niece, Kate. Especially, since her great-grandmother was of Norwegian descent!
My goal is to send it to her for her first birthday in February. And, if all goes well with it, I will knit the same pattern for her big brother…………..
This yarn store is wonderful! I saw several classes that I wish I could participate in, especially the one on assembling sweaters with a professional look. One of these days I just might have to drive the 2-1/2 hours up to take this class! I’m sure it would be a trip well spent since THAT is the part of knitting that I am still terrified of. Now you know why you see several sweaters being knit on my blog but NO finished sweaters….the secret is out!
