Portland Yarn Crawl

The first ever Portland Yarn Crawl is happening this weekend - March 5, 6 and 7 - in our fair city. Sixteen local yarn shops will participate in this exciting event and Close Knit is one of them.

Participants sign in at each shop, enter a raffle to win a basket full of knitting goodness and search for a scavenger item. This year's scavenger hunt has the theme "Hats Off to Portland's Knitting Designers" and Close Knit will feature a Getting Purly With It design.

During the crawl, we will also host a trunk show from one of our favorites: Blue Sky Alpacas and Spud and Chloe. This is an opportunity to see (and feel) some beautiful garments knit with Blue Sky and Spud and Chloe yarns. Even better, there will be a Blue Sky and Spud and Chloe drawing as well.

Lastly, when you stop by Close Knit anytime during the Yarn Crawl, mention the code words "knit close" and tell us that you read this blog post, you will receive ten percent off your non-sale yarn purchase.

Events like the Yarn Crawl remind us of how lucky we are to live in this city of fiber enthusiasts. Come to Close Knit this weekend during normal business hours for an opportunity to check out the trunk show, try your chances at winning some wonderful prizes and soak up the knitterly excitement and love!
