The Triangle Yarn Crawl is a self-guided tour of local yarn shops, where knitters and crocheters get together and hop from one shop to the next, shopping, entering raffles, and seeing the full breadth of available fibers. They happen twice a year, and the time has come again: the Spring 2013 crawl is this weekend, March 23rd and 24th!
There’s a bag like this at each of the participating shops, a raffle prize filled with goodies. What’s in the Hillsborough Yarn Shop prize?
A skein of gorgeous Sincere Sheep Equity Sport yarn, “Reticulated Mitts” pattern, Crystal Palace 35″ circular needles in US sizes 2 and 4, and a HYS needle and hook gauge. In short: everything you need to cast on for a pair of fingerless mitts using the magic loop technique. Come by the shop anytime during business hours on Saturday or Sunday and enter to win!
Additionally, the TYC organizers have planned something special for this Spring event: a scavenger hunt. Look for a stuffed TYC symbol somewhere in each shop, record the letters attached to it, and unscramble the word to reveal a Ravelry coupon code that lets you download a free pattern from local designers. Read more about the scavenger hunt on the TYC website, and look for this somewhere in the shop when you visit us this weekend!
We’re lucky to live in such a fiber-friendly part of the world, with so many choices available to us, and the Triangle Yarn Crawl is a great time to see all of those choices. Come see us this weekend as you’re crawling along, and receive 10% off your purchase when you show your TYC passport!
