Where are you? I'm in Longmont.

Hee, hee. Well, I know what a fourteener is! I used to live in Boulder, and I actually worked at the Longmont Humane Society for a while.

We're living in CA right now, but will be moving to CO in the Spring or Summer -- probably south Denver area. I'm so excited. CO is the most beautiful place I've ever lived!

I haven't climbed a 14er either! But I live in Colorado Springs at the foot of Pikes Peak. :happydance:

We have the best knit shop ever!!! Knitter's Kove on Union, just south of Constitution, if anybody ever decides to head on down. We have a great knit group and awesome people who work there! I LOVE IT!!!

I haven't climbed any fourteeners, but I am an avid rock and ice climber. :)

No climbing going on with me, either, unless it's on a quad. :rofl:

I'm on the western Slope, in Montrose. No dedicated yarn shop here, but there are nice ones in Grand Junction and Ridgway.

Hi Everyone

Nice to see some Coloradoans here. A Quick Question. Does anyone know of any Knitting classes offered anywhere. I have looked at Michaels and Hobby Lobby with no luck.

Happy Knitting

Hey there...hope this helps...this is a link to the class schedule at Showers of Flowers yarn shop located on Colfax. I haven't been there but I had taken a knitting class at Colorado Free University and the instructor said this is a good place to find yarn. The class I took was good but it really only taught to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off. And there isn't a next skill level you can take. I wish I had come across this info and just taken the class at this shop.


hope that helps you. I just finished my 1st project which was a dishcloth...*L* But I did finish and it works great!

Thank you so much. I will check this out. I just finished my first project too. a Scarf. lol. I think I have the basics down. I would like to see if there are any classes that would cover some more "advanced" issues.

Again, Thank you very much, and Good luck with your next project.

I'm in Boulder going to school. I've never climbed a 14er either, much to my consternation! Maybe when the Spring rolls around and the snow melts...

There is a nice yarn shop here as well, in South Boulder (Tablemesa & Broadway--right near King Soopers).
