Rose City Yarn Crawl

The Rose City Yarn Crawl is coming! This event will be held at 19 shops in the Portland metro area March 1-4. Yes, there are that many; it’s an embarrassment of riches. Can you visit 19 shops into four days? Well, you can at least try!

Each of the 19 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 Ziggy Hat kit to each of the baskets. The kit includes my Ziggy Hat pattern and her dreamy Polwarth Wool/Silk DK blend in assorted colors.

The shop owners are organizing the crawl themselves this year, and I love the buzz they’re creating on Facebook and Twitter. There are daily fun facts about the shops, trivia quizzes, and giveaways going on daily. 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.

Get set to crawl!

  1. I’m loving all the facts and questions! I super want to win a basket too!

  2. So … how can I participate from the East Coast? 😉

  3. I wish I could crawl all four days…even if I weren’t able to cover all 19 shops! As it stands, I am trying to get a couple of friends over for Saturday or Sunday. Keeping my fingers crossed. Both Ziggy and the model are a pleasant sight. That’s so sweet of you and Lorajean for making the crawl so much more fun 😀

  4. Maybe God is sending me to Nicaragua during the Yarn Crawl as a desperate measure to keep me from buying more yarn! Sorry I will have to miss it!

  5. Bummer! I won’t be in PDX until March 8th! Have fun!!!
