A loopy, bloggy giveaway.

You know what they say...one woman's stash is another woman's treasure. Or something like that...

Anyhow, Emily just finished up an amazing store model that's hanging at Loops South. It's the Creature Comforts Cardi by Madeline Tosh, a $6 ravelry download here. Here it is modeled by the lovely Kim:


The pattern has optional instructions for the amazing leaf cable motif down the back - you can do it with or without. But Emily and Annie Rose, who have both made this cardi, say that it's not too hard - and lots of fun!

Emily made her Creature Comforts in Dream In Color Classy, a sproing-y, delicious, hand-dyed superwash merino. The small size only takes 4 skeins of Classy, but Emily was being extra-cautious and wound up two extra skeins - which she didn't end up using! And that's where you could get lucky...

We are giving away these two skeins of Classy in the lovely Tickle colorway.


If you win them, you could essentially make this Cardi for half-price! Or do any number of other wonderful things with them, since they have 250 yards each.

To enter, post a comment telling what you love about Loops :) We will choose a winner next Friday, October 1.

Oh and P.S...we also just received a large order of Tosh Vintage, the yarn specified in the pattern (along with Pashmina, the yarn called for in the popular Goodale pattern). Here's a sneak peek of the Vintage, which is at the Utica store.


Another good reason to come to Utica Square today...Tulsa's first Anthropologie opened this morning!

I love to stop at Loops when I visit Tulsa. I get to touch and see yarns that I only see in magazines.

as much as I love the ummy nummy yarns at both Loops locations, what I like best about my trips to Loops are the people... the staff is beyond faboo and meeting other customers and comparing notes is always fun as well

I haven't been to Tulsa since I knew about Loops, so I haven't gotten to enjoy the store yet, but I love the blog and newsletter. Not all knitting stores provide that, and I really enjoy it!

I have been coming to Loops for almost as long as Utica has been open. Your staff is great. I have learned pits and pieces from at least everyone. Thanks everyone for being so giving of your time and talent. Kim Bone

What don't I love about Loops?!?! :) The staff is fantastic, so extremely helpful; the classes are great and the variety Loops has to offer is endless. There is a yarn for every project at Loops. It's clean, airy and when you walk in you instantly know that you could plop down anywhere and start knitting. Once you go Loops you never go back!

I love LOOPS because not only cause you carry the best yarns, but because of the community of people that you see and meet there. Loops seams to bring together knitters, (young/old, new/experienced) that no other place can offer. The staff is amazing which makes the atmosphere most enjoyable. I also really like Facebook Fridays too!

Loops is the type of store which inspires one to be creative in the fiber arts. The beautiful yarns, the supportive staff, the educational classes, the well-designed stores full of accessible stock, even the cute little Loops Mobile - all cause the creative juices to flow in overtime! What's not to love about LOOPS!?!?!

I love Loops because even though I don't live in Tulsa, it feels like my own LYS! I follow the blog and facebook, try to order from the website when I can, so I feel like I'm right there, even though I'm not. It's awesome!

I love the Loops Troops! They are always there to help out and to find that perfect color for your project. And also, of course, sock yarn!

I love being able to walk in, grab a seat and feel at peace. There's always someone to help, to laugh with, to knit with. Oh, and the yarn makes me happy too.

I am in India, so I have never to Loops store. I love reading your blog and ogling at the yummy yarn photos that you post. Wish you opened a store in India. In Bangalore, specifically.

I love the selection of yarn; I don't even go into yarn shops on vacation anymore since it's so good. Oh, & you've also gotta love the enabling factor; where else can you go that has a place to keep the kiddos busy while you shop?????

When I in Tulsa, I plan my day around visiting Loops. I love the windows in the store. They remind me of a time when I was little and my grandmother would take to me and my sister "to town." Everyone is so super nice.

On my next trip, I will be visiting the new store. I can't wait to see that blue cabinet in person.

Love love Loops!
I have taken a few classes and now feel like I have more confidence to tackle big projects! Thanks!
I went in on Friday was helped by the girls at Utica with a pattern, yarn, & needles. I started my hat in store where I could get a few pointers and now thru the weekend have 1/2 way completed my project. Thanks Loops!

Well, I love yarn unconditionally (ok, not mohair) so obviously that's a part of what I love about Loops. But I have to say, it's the employees that make it a great place to shop, browse, or even just hang out a knit a bit. Kudos to the Loops Troops for sure! Also, I love whatever magic mojo Shelley's got that convinces top notch designers, dyers, etc. to grace Tulsa with their presence!

I love Loops, both of them, seriously! Utica is so close to my home and South is near my office - so convenient! So I'm always just a few minutes away when I need a fix.

I love that you have a location on the south side of things now. When I first heard, I thought I would never have to brave the BA Expressway again when I had an uncontrollabe urge for more yarn. And though I love the new location (and my husband is thrilled with that garage store he can wait in instead of the car), I find myself drawn to Utica to see old friends and get help from your amazing staff. During our travels this summer I visited several yarn stores, Loops is by far the best!

I'm so glad Loops opened close to me in South Tulsa! Just finished the first scarf I've ever knitted from yarn I bought there. Can't wait to get my next project underway!!
