Yarn Along the Rockies

Any yarn lover in Colorado should check out Yarn Along the Rockies,  September 21-29. Also known as the Yarn Crawl, this fun event brings knitters, crocheters, spinners, weavers, and yarn crafters of all kinds together for the chance to visit some awesome shops and win crafty prizes.

23 yarn shops across the state are participating, and each one will have a drawing for a prize basket filled with yarn-related goodies you’ll want to get your hands on. If you visit all of the participating shops and get your passport stamped at each one, you become eligible to win one of the 3 grand prizes, full of tons of yarn and notions! You can also show your passport at participating restaurants near the shops to get a discount on food or drinks. Trekking around Colorado and ogling all that yarn is bound to work up your appetite!

We are gearing up for the Yarn Along the Rockies yarn crawl.  This event will run from September 8th to the 16th, and we have grand plans to visit all of the participating shops. If you are in the Denver area, we hope to see you in our travels!

And, exciting news for those of you in the Charlotte, Texas, and New York areas, your local shops have planned yarn crawls for you too!

First up, is the Charlotte Yarn Crawl, from September 28th to October 7th.

Then come visit Central Texas for  the Hill Country Yarn Crawl, from October 5th to October 8th.

Last, but certainly not least, New York! On October 6th and 7th come visit your local shops for The New York City Yarn Crawl. Last we checked the site was still under construction, but you can chat with your NY Knitters (and crawlers) on their facebook page.

We will be posting pictures of our travels (and purchases) and we would love to see you in action as well. Let’s all bask in the soft glow of gorgeous new yarn!
