The "Hot August Knits" yarn shop crawl is a two-week event taking place at nine yarn shops in Colorado and Wyoming. We were privileged to be a part of this event~ signing books at Cowgirl Yarns in Laramie and Ewe Count in Cheyenne. Shoppers are given passports at their first stop and then have the opportunity to enter drawings, including the chance to win a gigantic basket of yarnie goodness if they have their passports stamped at all nine of the shops... I wonder who the lucky winner will be?
Cowgirl Yarns is located in a classic area of "old town" Laramie that would be a great location for a film... check out these great storefronts!
My favorite one is the purple awning with the stripes!
Lori has a lovely shop and a friendly group of knitters to boot- the perfect combination. These knitters are busy working on some great projects.
Kelsey works here at Cowgirl and is making a cotton baby blanket using a clever Tunisian Crochet technique.
Mother is signing books and sharing a laugh with Sheila...
whose son, Noah, who also happens to be a knitter!
Christie is a writer who brought a treat for Mother (dark chocolate truffle!) to bribe her to share some of her publishing secrets... and they had a great time talking about writing and publishing. It must have been a day for talking with writers...
as this is Sandra, who is also a writer and had a great "writer's talk" with Mother, too. She and her daughter, Zoe had a lovely first visit to Cowgirl Yarns today!
It was time to move on to Ewe Count... but not without leaving our mark:
Jessie and Woody, our favorite cowgirl and cowboy,

Thank you Cowgirl Yarns, we can't wait to come back and visit!
Ewe Count is located in a cute house in a charming part of Cheyenne. Penny carries a wide variety of yarns, patterns, and needlework supplies. When we arrived, there was quite a big group of knitters and readers waiting for us! We had a great time meeting everyone that came to the signing in Cheyenne!
What a day! Thank you, Ewe Count, for hosting the signing! Happy Reading, and Happy Knitting everyone!
