The Rose City Yarn Crawl Begins!

The RCYC is in full swing starting today, Thursday March 3 at 10AM. Shops all over Portland will be participating with free patterns, door prizes, raffles, and all kinds of special events.
We are thrilled to host local designer Lisa Carney-Fenton who is showcasing many of her beautiful designs today. Stop in and say hello!
We are hoping to see Brooke Sinnes, founder and master dyer at Sincere Sheep, at any moment. She will be visiting from Napa with an inspiring spread of her naturally-dyed yarn.
And come back Friday to see Ami Volz of Lakes Yarn and Fiber. Holy cow, her stuff is stunning. Sally used her gorgeous Lochsa DK to design our shop knitting pattern, the Doug Fir Cowl, free with the purchase of the yarn during the crawl.

We will also get to meet Kate from Ruby Peak Farms in Lostine, Oregon. Her wool has never left Oregon! The ranch is located in eastern Oregon near Joseph, and the wool is processed in Salem before it makes its way to our little shop in Portland.

Come in Thursday. Come in Friday. Just come and say hi and join in the festivities!
