Nothing says it is time for the Greater Boston Yarn Crawl like waking up to a brisk 57 degrees blowing in the the window!
First off, we have special hours for the crawl. We’ll be open:
Thursday, 9/17 – 10-8
Friday, 9/18 – 10-5
Saturday, 9/19 – 10-5
Sunday, 9/20 – 12-5
We have lots of fun planned, games, tons of prizes and fiber loving for all, but here’s the stuff you want to know before you plan your visit:
Have you made anything from Island Yarn yarns? Wear it in and you’ll get a prize right off just for dressing yourself! 🙂
Wren Ross will be singing her delightful knitter’s songs during knit night on Thursday. Try to get there about 7 for a fantastic show that will make you smile and giggle with “oh, I’ve been there!” thoughts!
Our fabulous crochet teacher, Nancy, will be teaching a little “class-let” on Saturday from 2-5 on the Magic Circle. This is a great technique for anything you crochet from the center out! Plotting to crochet a blanket with motifs this year? This is an invaluable skill to have!
We have a brand new hand-dye color JUST for the yarn crawl! It’s going to need a name, so put your creative thinky caps on!
We’ve got every color of Rivulet hanging upon the wall for you! If you want to plan ahead, it’s 340 yards/skein, sport weight. Ravelry can help you with sport weight ideas here. All Island Yarn brand yarns will be 15% for the entire crawl!
And a bunch more stuff that you’ll just have to come in and be delighted by!
Hope to see you and happy cool temps!!
