Hey everyone! Sorry I’ve been so absent this past week, but I have had a good excuse. It was Rose City Yarn Crawl weekend!!!! What’s a Yarn Crawl you are asking. Well It’s a lot like a pub crawl, but with less beer and more yarn!
18 shops in the Portland area participated in this years yarn crawl. There were sign in sheets to give away awesome baskets of prizes. They had trunk shows and specially dyed local yarn
I scored this lovely skein of Sock That Rock Mediumweight AND 2 skeins of bumblebirch
Dublin Bay Knitting Company had a Downton Abbey marathon!How cute is that!
There has been so much yarn added to my stash. I should be able to happily knit along for quite some time.
Speaking of knitting, I will be hosting a weekly video knitting podcast called Pick Up & Purl. I worked on all the graphics/hosting/technical stuff this week. I also shot 90% of the B-roll. I am so excited to shoot/edit/post my first episode tomorrow. If you want to follow along go check out the details at pickupandpurl.com Also Tommorow I will draw the name of the winner of the iPad/iphone case!
How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?
