Man! The ladies & gents know how to have a GOOD time.

And a good time was had by all!

Thank you to all who participated in the South Sound Yarn Crawl this past weekend.
What a BLAST!
The weather was perfect.
Moods were up...WAY up. New friendships were made & old ones rekindled.
And yarn discoveries were plentiful.

All finishers will be contacted when the
commemorative 2010 notions bags arrive. You'll be able to pick those up in any of the participating shops.
The grand prize and second chance winners names will be drawn next week at the Yarn Garden in Gig Harbor.

All of the participating shops look forward to hosting another crawl next year. As always, we want to improve on an already fun-filled weekend.
So we welcome your comments, suggestions and (of course) your compliments.
Feel free to email any of us at any time.

I want to give a very special thank you to designer Lisa Ellis for creating a beautiful pattern for Yorkshire Yarns SSYC.
The featured yarn (Rowan Calmer) for this pattern is 10% off all month!

Listen. Since we've got the ball rollin' for summer knit/crochet fun we'd thought we'd keep it going by having more events.

More girl time comin' up! ....and a couple guys. :-)
