The Rose City Yarn Crawl Mystery Knit-a-long and Crochet-a-long begin today! The create-a-long part is a fun way to stay motivated to get your project done by the yarn crawl weekend of March 1-4. The mystery part is fun, because you don't know what the finished product will look like until you're done! The first clue has been released today, and the remaining 3 will be released each Wednesday.
If you follow the links, you can purchase your pattern through Ravelry. You can also take a peek at previous years' mystery patterns, as well as all of the shop patterns from yarn crawls past. Each pattern will require two skeins of fingering weight yarn, totaling at least 700 yards. We have sooo many beautiful and inspiring options to choose from...solids, semi-solids, hand-dyed, speckled, variegated...the sock wall is your oyster.
We would love to see you at Open Knit and Crochet tonight from 6-9PM at the shop. We can get you all set up with your yarns, and we can all get started together. Come and mystery-a-long with us!
