Loopy Yarns

After a beyond-the-basics knitting discussion, there was an impromptu field trip to a yarn store around the corner from the hotel, Loopy Yarns.

I had heard really nice things about this store on Ravelry, and I have to say that it was really great. The store is really open with lots of light, and the yarn selection is really good. The prices were a smidgen high, but not a lot more than you would expect for something in downtown Chicago.

I ended up picking up some Lorna's Laces (dyed locally in the Chicago area) Shepherd Sock in Woodlawn, which is in Brubu-type colors and Cat Bordhi's New Pathways book.

And when we were leaving, someone pointed out the crocheted graffiti on a post in front of the store. How cool! Final verdict: Loopy Yarns is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
