Rose City Yarn Crawl 2013

Mark your calendars! The Rose City Yarn Crawl is coming. This year’s crawl will feature 18 shops in the Portland metro area February 28-March 3.

Each of the 18 shops will have a prize basket with goodies donated by sponsors, plus something from the shop. You can enter to win a basket in each of the shops. If you make it to all the shops and fill out your shop passport, you can enter to win the grand prize basket.

Lorajean Kelley of Knitted Wit and I are teaming up and donating a fun little project for this year’s baskets.

These are my new Daffy Taffy Twists, knit with Knitted Wit’s Gumballs, mini-skeins of fingering weight superwash merino. I wrote the pattern especially for this event, and it will be available here on the blog soon. I just need to reformat it so it’s not a postcard! It ties in with Lorajean’s theme: Treat yourself!

Check out the yarn crawl buzz on Facebook and Twitter. You can follow the fun on the Rose City Yarn Crawl Facebook page, or on twitter. You’ll find the full shop list and more information on the Rose City Yarn Crawl website.

I’m really looking forward to this year’s crawl; I missed last year’s because I was in Nicaragua. See you soon!

  1. I love Daffy Taffy and these are even more delicious looking! Love ‘em and I will look forward seeing ‘em in person :D

  2. Those are cute! I know I won’t be able to make it to all of the shops, but I look forward to checking out some new shops that I haven’t been to yet.

  3. Too cute! I already have this year’s crawl marked on my calendar. Made it to all 19 shops last year, and hoping to visit all of them again!

  4. Those gumballs are so cute! And I can’t wait for the yarn crawl!! Last year was the first time I went and I loved the excuse to check out yarn stores I’d never been to before (hello, I didn’t know the wonder of Twisted existed)
