Those of you that follow my blog have heard me talk about my LYS (local yarn store). Well, that store is Loops and I’ve been teaching at their metro location in Utica Square. A beautiful uptown, outdoor shopping center with the greatest of high quality stores. The store at Utica Square is the type of place anybody feels comfortable sitting down and knitting for a while with the employees or other customers. It is always welcoming and very inspiring. If you don’t have a project that you are going to get yarn for and need insaration just walk in and take it all in and you will walk out with a new project a yummy yummy yarn to go with it. They even have a great play room for your kidos to play in while you play with yarn.
Loops just opened a new location called Loops South. Located at 8287 S Memorial. It is AMAZING! Very modern and clean. You have a great view of all the yarns and well, lets just let the photos show you. And if you want to see more then you can look at the Loops Blog.
These are all the amazing employees! They are very helpful and know their stuff.
Shelly is the one in the gray shirt in the front of the Now Open sign and is the mastermind behind all of this and is also a wife and a mother of 3. She is the artist behind the Loops look. Her and her husband have owned an ad agency for 18 years. Shelly started Loops in 2005 as a quest to build a better yarn store – one that is friendly, fun, and very fashion-forward. Her belief is that the busier you are, the more time you can find to knit! She knits at her kids’ karate practice and after their bedtime, if she doesn’t fall asleep while reading to them.
Loops sponsored the yarn for My Matryoshka dolls. It’s Blue Sky Alpaca Cotton and amazing to knit toys with. I’ll have to try to make baby hats with it next.
For those of you that don’t live in Tulsa you are in luck. Loops has an online store! You can order online or call in your order.
