A few more notes on the crawl:
I’m going to have a mini-trunk show at Twisted on Thursday, February 28, from 3 to 5 p.m. I’ll be teaming up with the fabulous Chrissy Gardiner for two hours of fun! I hope you can stop by and say hello.
The Daffy Taffy Twists pattern is up and available for you, for free! Knitted Wit‘s Gumballs mini-skeins are perfect for this, and leftover sock yarn works in a pinch, too. Tuck a little lavender inside the stuffing and make sachets! I’d suggest catnip to make catnip toys, but I never want Mookie to have an excuse to chew yarn. You can decide for your own cat, though…
And last of all: Today, Monday, February 4, is the last day to pre-order your limited edition 2013 RCYC tote bag. They’re cute, with the RCYC logo on the front, and participating store logos on the back. What are you waiting for? Are you a procrastinator like me? I’m ordering mine right now!
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!
