Wow—what a weekend! We had such a fabulous time meeting and chatting with all the wonderful fiber lovers that visited us during the crawl. Thank you all for making this such an enjoyable event–we hope to see you all again soon!Super Cupcake CHIC Knits

We also wanted to thank Bonne Marie Burns, of CHIC KNITS, for spending Friday afternoon with us here at the shop with her gorgeous collection of patterns. Bonne was such a joy to talk with and gave wonderful advice to our crawlers–we can’t wait to have her back again! For those of you unfamiliar with Bonne Marie’s work, she is a multi-talented knitwear designer with a background in fashion and graphic design. Bonne’s Super Cupcake pattern (on the right) is just scrumptious–isn’t it!? To check out more of her sassy modern hand knit designs click HERE.

Another big thank you goes out to Deborah Hopkinson, author of KNIT YOUR BIT, for spending part of her Saturday with us signing books and greeting young and old readers alike. Deborah is an award-winning author of more than 40 books for young readers. Her latest title, KNIT YOUR BIT, is based on a real-life Knitting Bee that took place in Central Park in 1918. This entertaining and informative historical fiction book provides a fascinating glimpse into America’s home front during WWI and highlights an important piece of knitting history. This book is perfect for young knitters just starting to learn the craft, as well as veteran knitters and history buffs alike.

We also wanted to congratulate our three Rose City Yarn Crawl raffle winners: Reid Worley (not pictured) was the recipient of All About Yarn’s $20 gift card, and Barbara Creviston and Brian Sell were the recipients of All About Yarn’s amazing 2013 Rose City Yarn Crawl first prize baskets! I love their HUGE smiles!
