Last December I picked up a brochure for Denver's Knitting for Our Troops marathon. Being the perennial joiner, I had to dive in. In the course of a few days I discovered three fine knitting shops in the Denver area: Fancy Tiger, a small but impressively funky shop which is conveniently located near my office; the Lamb Shoppe, which has a great selection of wools, a friendly sit-down-and-knit vibe, and an espresso machine; and Showers of Flowers, which is off my usual path but is huge and stocks lots of Euroflax linen yarn. While shopping for 100% wool for the K4OT project, Lamb Shoppe owner Mary Carol asked me to contact Susan Greene at the Denver Post for an upcoming article. I try to periodically embarrass myself and my family in the media, so of course I had to call.
Our dear friends Bob and Michelle are thorough newspaper readers, and apparently spent much of an afternoon giggling over the new moniker Ms. Greene ascribed to me in the article, which appeared on New Year's Day. So there you have it.
