is almost here! If a day of travel and petting yarn and spending time with your favorite fiber friends appeals to you, this event is what you've been waiting for!! Gather your friends, fill the gas tank and take to the road! The eight participating yarn shops will welcome you with a chance to win door prizes, collect a free pattern in each shop, and enter to win the Grand Prize. I haven't seen this year's prize, but the Grand Prize is always a very full bushel basket of items for knitters and crocheters!
This year's Yarn Crawl takes place July 27 - August 11, 2019. It's easy to be a "Yarn Crawler"....
1--Pick up your Yarn Crawl passport at your local yarn shop, or at the first shop you visit. The passport tells you the address and hours of each participating yarn shop. You must have each shop stamp the passport to prove you visited. When you have a stamp for every shop, cut off the top, and place it in your last shop's entry box for the Grand Prize drawing!
2--Each shop will have their own specials, prizes, and a free "Hot August Knits" pattern. Get your passport stamped, register for each shop's door prize, and, of course, pet the yarn! You will be amazed at the huge variety of yarn you will see in these eight shops!
The Stitchin' Den's free knitting pattern is Laurel Cardigan by Amy Christoffers. This is a cardigan sweater with one cable running horizontally across the middle. It will be a perfect addition to your wardrobe this fall and winter. We recommend Universal Worsted Tweed, Cascade 220, Donegal Tweed and other worsted weight yarn/
The Stitchin' Den's free crochet pattern is Crochet Water Bottle Holder by Kelly Spenhoff. Drinking water is so important at our high altitude a classy bottle holder is perfect for family and friends. Collect free patterns from the all the shops and you will be set for a winter of knitting/crocheting.
The Stitchin' Den's feature yarn is from Herd of Cats, with themes influenced by Estes Park, Rocky Mountain National Park , and life in Colorado. "Road Trip Sock Yarn" is a superwash blend of merino for warmth with nylon for elasticity and strength. You willl find luxury in the "S'mores" series, which is comprised of Baby Yak and Mulberry Silk...softness to die for! If you prefer a heavier yarn, "Hike, Yarn, Repeat"if worsted weight superwash merino will filll the bill. Kits and Project bags are included in this collection:
Herd of Cats started as a small business in Denver in 2010 by Ali Pate. We like to support small businesses, and we are sure you will agree Road Trip yarn is worth supporting.
We hope to see you during the Hot August Knits Yarn Crawl. We guarantee you will have an awesome day visiting the shops!
3--Have fun! That's really what this is all about! Enjoy the fiber, enjoy your friends, enjoy the travel and enjoy planning your next yarn project. And...don't forget to enter each store's drawing for a door prize!
