Loopy Yarns of Chicago

The one yarn store that I have not blogged about from my trip was Loopy Yarns in Chicago.  The nephew and I went to Chicago, and we visited the home of deep-dish pizza and a yarn store...and then we left....so we didn't see much of Chicago....

Loopy Yarns was very similar to stores in Manhattan, the boutique yarn store feeling....it was smaller, but had a basement...that was cool....the employees were friendly...but the nephew was rushing me through the store...so I was trying to shop fairly quickly...if I'm ever back in Chicago, I will give it another peruse...






I loved the little sitting area....and actually had Wilkey take a seat for a photo....I ended up buying some of the yarn in the last shot....

The nephew picked out some yarn, Cascade Yarns 220....so I made him a hat with it....
 and I picked up the Freia yarn, which I so love!!!!

Men don't get it sometimes. Last time I was in a yarn store, the men sat on the patio of a restaurant and had a drink. I had all the time I needed.

Yes, you definitely have to go back there.

Since I was with a 14 year old boy, yeah he was antsy...

It actually wasn't huge, but made really good use of their space....
