Portland Yarn Crawl this weekend

Are you planning to crawl? There will be 20 local yarn stores participating in the second Annual Portland Yarn Crawl this coming weekend. (Yes, we have an abundance of yarn stores here in the Portland area!) The event is Friday, March 4 through Sunday, March 6.

I don’t know if I’ll make it to all 20, but I know that I’ll go to a few. The lure of the raffle baskets is strong! Lantern Moon donated the baskets, and they are stuffed with all sorts of goodies from the other very generous sponsors. For every LYS you visit on the crawl, you get a chance to win the raffle basket at that store. If you visit all 20 stores, you have 20 chances to win!

I’m still not a yarn stasher. But I can always use more tools, magazines, chances to win…and I know I’ll see other knitting friends along the way. Hope to see you, too!

  4. Oh how fun…too bad I’m on the other side of the US!

  5. Woohoo! I’m almost ready! I’ll be at 2 Portland area LYS this weekend – (Urban Fiber Arts on Saturday & Wynona Studios on Sunday). Couldn’t resist that bit of shameless self promotion. 🙂 Have a great time this weekend!

  6. Oh my, how can a knitter not be a yarn stasher?
