Last Day to Yarn Crawl

Have you all been keeping up with the Yarn Crawl happenings at Close Knit?  Our Facebook page is covered with the proud (and tired) faces of yarn crawlers who made it to all eighteen Portland-area shops.  Those adventurous folks are entered to win a humongous prize basket filled with lots of yarny goodies.  It's huge.
For those of you who have only made it to a few shops (or maybe just one), you are still entered into the raffle at each shop where you signed in.  There are large and lovely baskets at each shop, as well as very generous yarn kits and gift certificates.
Our sweet and talented friend Sarah of Bumblebirch joined us, and I know you all fell in love with her yarn.  I snagged the lone skein of Forage in Dandelion.  
So pretty.  Sarah will be at the shop for the rest of the crawl, showing off her beautiful yarns.  She has a smattering of the worsted weight Forage, as well as her three fingering weights Grove, Wellspring, and Heartwood.

If you made a purchase at Close Knit, we gave you a Ravelry code for our free pattern, the Cowlberta.  Don't forget to use this by Monday at midnight!  It will expire!  The patterns will be available as part of an ebook, but they are only accessible as freebies until Monday night.

It was fun to see all of the color combos that knitters chose for their cowls.  I wore a carbon/soapstone/leapfrog sample around the shop for a bit on Friday, and I was so pleased with the Spud & Chloe Outer.  So soft and still 10% off for the rest of the crawl!  All of the shops are open today from 10-6, so there is plenty of time to come get yours.
Thank you so much to everyone who visited our shop, whether you are a long-time Close Knitter or a first-timer.  We are happy to have you and we hope to see you all again soon!  Maybe not all at the same time, though...we need a minute to recuperate and clean up the shop!
