17,400 lbs., 12 feet in diameter, and 39 years
This is how we feel most days, but especially this time of year because it's YARN CRAWL!  To celebrate we're having an opening night party and sale on Friday, August 3rd from 6:30 - 8:30. Though the Crawl officially starts on Saturday, you can pick up your Passport, do a little shopping, a little stitching and some refreshing with your friends.  We have selected yarns from 60% - 75% off.  There are some good deals in sweater amounts, come early for the best selection.    

During the Crawl everything in the store will be 10% off. We are also having some special classes and events --

Our raffle prize is a Noro gift basket valued at $100.  When you come to the store, fill out a raffle ticket with your name and email to win this gorgeous assortment.  It includes two skeins of Shiraito, their most coveted luxury cashmere and angora blend.

And, again this year we have 2 free patterns, one for knitters and one for crocheters.
Exotic Eyelet Scarf

Knot a Clover Chain
The crochet pattern will be taught twice during the Crawl - see below.

Here's the schedule for the week:
Monday, August 6th @ 2PM Crochet Jewelry Workshop - All supplies and instruction $15 please call to confirm your spot.

Wednesday, August 8th @ 6:30 - Color Affection KAL wrap-up. For those participating in the KAL we'll celebrate the end of this beautiful project, show off your pieces - hopefully finished - and enter to win a prize.

Thursday, August 9th @ 3PM visit with one of Chicago's very own illustrious designers. I have to confirm with her, so the announcement will be coming soon, but promise, it's good!!

Friday, August 10th @ 2PM Crochet Jewelry Workshop - All supplies and instruction $15 please call to confirm your spot.

The sale will last throughout the Crawl, but I expect the best selection on Friday night, August 3rd.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone!
Happy Crawling,
