Yarn Crawl Time!

The Rose City Yarn Crawl is upon us! 
Sally's St. Johns Slouch is at the shop right now, and it's really beautiful.  She designed it using Manos del Uruguay Maxima, a favorite yarn at Close Knit.  The pattern is free with any purchase in the shop, but the Maxima will be 10% off during the crawl.  We have a nice deep stock in the gorgeous Manos colorways we all love so much.  All of the free patterns are inspired by the water and bridges of Portland, and Sally's cables look like the iconic St. Johns Bridge.

Things get underway on Thursday, February 28 at 10AM.  We have so so so much going on, it's hard to keep track.  There are multiple raffles for all kinds of amazing baskets, door prizes for the first 10 purchases each day, and trunk shows from some our favorite yarn companies.
We have the adorable Royal Petites Collection and the beautiful new wraps knit in Blue Sky Alpacas Metalico.
I am very excited to check out Julie Hoover's designs for Manos del Uruguay, especially the Beaubourg pullover.  My heart skipped a little beat when Jenni pulled this one out of the box.
We also have some lovely stuff from the Scrumptious line from Fyberspates and some unusual hand-dyed Tencel from local dyer Teresa Ruch.
There will be a limited number of Rose City Yarn Crawl tote bags available for sale at the shop, but they won't last long.  We will be open from 10-6 Thursday through Sunday, March 3.  Print out your Passport, collect a whole bunch of stamps, and win a bunch of great stuff!  

I'll see you here next week when the dust settles.
