This weekend was the 2017 Rose City Yarn Crawl. It has been a few years since I really invested in this event, but this year I did the Knit Along in preparation for a long day of yarn shopping.
I invited members of my (not often attended) Salem knitting group and a very nice knitter named Jakay offered to come along for the ride.
So, on Saturday we hit all 13 shops. I had a budget and blew it, but I ended up with a swift, two new shawl pins, the makings of a new sweater, and a few skeins I just couldn’t do without. Pro tip: Yarn shop personnel will NEVER talk you into sticking to your budget.
We left Salem at 8:00am, hit the first store (Wool ‘N Wares) at 9, got our last shop (Northwest Wools) at 5:15, and were home by 6:30.
It was a big day.
