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