RCYC 2016 Day 1

FYS bubbles for RCYC

The Rose City Yarn Crawl started off with a bang. Or more accurately, a POP! I spent the day at For Yarn’s Sake having a multi-trunk show with dyer Lorajean Kelley of Knitted Wit, and fellow designers Shannon Squire and Debbi Stone. Owner Ann started our morning with a bubbly toast. Let the crawl begin!

It was fun chatting with knitters about designs, and steering them towards (more) yarn. Trunk shows are a great way to see knits up close and personal, and even try them on.

Summertime Blues Mo

Mo is planning to knit her very own Summertime Blues. She’s not the only one. Seeing the drape and swing of this poncho in person is a game changer!

Rosaria Melinda

Melinda brought her cashmere-infused Rosaria (2014’s mystery knit) to show me. I love her colors.

Sunday

Sunday once again dyed her hair to match her completed mystery KAL. Awesome!

Henry

Henry knits color work scarves, flat, with recycled yarn.

Binkwaffle

Debbi and I love our dumpling bags by Binkwaffle. They’re reversible, and just the right size for a single skein project. The bonus is that it comfortably sits on your wrist, which is helpful if you don’t have pockets to stash your yarn. Ann has these bags in the shop, but ours are from last summer’s TNNA show.

I love Shannon’s sock wheel. Her dad made it for her. I’m impressed! I have some of his sock blockers, but the sock wheel is so far beyond that.

What’s next? Friday I’m doing a trunk show for Lantern Moon’s retreat, and then I’ll hit a few shops for the crawl. Saturday is free for crawling and on Sunday I’ll be at Twisted from 1 to 4 p.m. If you see me this weekend, say hi!

I know Rachel is missing the crawl; on Wednesday she posted on my FB that she wished she could be here. She moved to Florida last year (sunny and warm!); it’s a little out of range, though. We miss her, too. She’s one of the Turkish Delight OFFF spinners!

Knit on, my lovelies, with bubbly if you must! Are you crawling this weekend? If not, what are you doing instead?

Rose City Yarn Crawl and trunk shows

It’s one of my favorite weekends of the year: Rose City Yarn Crawl! This year there are fourteen participating shops in the metro Portland area. The crawl begins at 10 a.m. on Thursday, March 3, and ends at 6 p.m. on Sunday, March 6. Are you ready?

I’ll be at two shops with trunk shows this year.
