I think it is funny that I pretended I wasn’t sure I was going to join the Tour de France Knitalong. As soon as I posted about it I knew in my heart I was going to join–I just think sometimes my head lives in denial.
So I am in.
And thanks to you all for voting, i have a clear project winner of Cherry with 63% of the vote. Now about yarn, I thought I had something in my stash that would work but upon further reflection I don’t think it will. So I need yarn.
To all you Denverites out there…what is the best yarn store to shop for sweater amounts of yarn? I don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands so it would help to only have to go to one shop. Any suggestions?
Also, thanks for all the well wishes on my new place. I am really excited about getting unpacked and settled. Pet Peeve about moving though: spending hours and hours making sure the place I leave is spotless and clean for the next renter and then moving to a new place that was left filthy. This really, really vexes me. Just for the record.

Complain to the management so they know all the work you did to move in! Can’t wait to see Cherry grow;-)
Yay! I’m glad you picked Cherry.
I can’t believe the mgmt didn’t have the place spotless for you!
From your new digs, the place to go is: http://www.thelambshoppe.com/ It is near your new neighborhood and they have a late night (Thursday) I think. Congrats on the new digs. We’ll have to get together soon.
Total and complete ditto on the cleaning pet peeve! Happy knitting! 😉
Looking forward to seeing you knit Cherry!
Yeah, the moving-cleaning thing is a royal pain. I hope it goes well for you.
You’ve been training for this for a long time, so go go go! (I mean the knitting. The cleaning part really stinks, I’m with you on that). 😉
I second the Lambshoppe suggestion.
My friend and I visited Denver over the winter and we went there a total of 3 times because no one else compares to them.
WEBS has that yarn on their site- i know – i bought some there!
Congrats on finding a new place! I was the same way when I rented. The place I left had to be clean, and the place I moved into had to be clean before my stuff even saw the front door. Didn’t matter if it looked clean, I had to *know* it was clean too!*L*
Can’t wait to see what yarn you choose for Cherry
I lived in Boulder last summer and I absolutely loved it. Congratulations on the move and finally having a place of your own!
Hooray for Cherry and the TdF kal!!
So glad Cherry won!! Can’t wait to see it. And woot! for the Tour KAL… I think I might go on over and be a joiner too… I had a spark on genius on what my project could be.
A fab choice in projects!
There is nothing more annoying than having a prior renter leave the place a mess *sigh*
I am so glad to hear that you found a place to live! And that’s one of my pet peeves, too.
I’m in the TDF, too, but just doing socks. You better get sprinting!
Oh Cherry is lovely indeed: appropriatique for the TdF KAL!! Hope you find the right wool soon!! Hapy Knitting!!
Oh my gosh, I know what you mean!!! I remember once we moved into this place that still had hairs in the bathtub! So GROSS! I always still have to clean mine anyway, even though not everyone does it…
Anyway, so glad you found a new place and that you’re getting settled!
Also glad you picked Cherry. I love it.
