This weekend is the Rose City Yarn Crawl, with 15 LYS’s participating. Knitters from all over the place have been saving their money, planning projects and purchases – waiting for this event. Is there another city in the world with such a plethora of wonderful yarn stores as Portland, OR?
I will be appearing at two stores this weekend, doing demos of Annetarsia techniques, signing books, answering questions, and checking out what knitters are purchasing and excited about. Can’t wait! Today I will be at the Naked Sheep Knit Shop, in North Portland. This is a delightful, cozy shop with a loyal and close-knit clientele. I love being there. Tomorrow, I am visiting For Yarn’s Sake, in Beaverton. This is a large store with so much yarn and inspiration all around, that I think of it as knitting Nirvana. I will be at each store from 2-5pm – Naked Sheep on Saturday, For Yarn’s sake on Sunday.
Coming with me will be “Ziggy Zaggy” in progress. I’ve started the first zig zag. I haven’t buried any ends yet, I will be demo’ing that for knitters this weekend. The pattern is starting to show, but it will continue to reveal itself as I knit. Intarsia garter stitch is so much fun to knit!
Happy RCYC, everyone! Hope to see some of you, be sure to say Hi!
