Wednesday Miscellany: You find yarn in the most unusual places

Isn't it grand to stumble on fiber when you're not expecting it?

In my peregrinations lately, yarn has presented itself at the following locales:

1. In Season Local Market--This brand-new store is like a mini indoor farmer's market. And it's in our neighborhood! Pasture-raised beef, happy dead chickens, local eggs, honey, jams, etc. And yarn. Handspun from beautiful La Veta, CO.

2. Dragonfly Eco Goods--Also in the 'hood. Look for hats made from recycled sweaters, hemp wash cloths and some handknit baby items.

3. Unity--At a small boutique on Platte Street specializing in eco, socially responsible clothing--a young woman knitting a drop-stitch scarf. The two of us convinced Mitch to try on a pair of the Tom's Shoes (he's the guy who gives one pair of shoes away for every pair sold). In spite of our injunctions, he resisted purchasing. But he did look hot.

4. City, O City--The vegetarian, granola-hip pub in Denver's Capitol Hill. Lots of arty young people nibbling vegan, gluten-free pizza and wearing handknits begging for a Eucalan bath.
