Back in January we decided to participate in the D.C. Metro Yarn Crawl. After all, we are still a new shop and there are a lot of yarn lovers that haven’t visited us yet. Personally, this will be the first time I have participated in The Crawl. I don’t know what was wrong with me before…20% off all yarn??? Maybe it was because I was a lone knitter and crawls are more fun when you go with a fellow yarn junkie. Regardless, now as a shop owner, I don’t know what to expect. Usually when I find myself in this predicament, I am over prepared. Wonder who taught me to do this? I think it went something like “it doesn’t matter if you don’t know how to play, you ALWAYS look the part, and they will never know the difference.” 🙂
Every shop has something special to offer and we can’t carry everything. There are so many wonderful yarns out there it is just impossible to have it all. So we have been working to find yarns that you won’t see at the other shops. Frankly, I think we have done a pretty good job. I looked around the shop yesterday and I am pleased. I still have to figure out where to put the 2 boxes of Neighborhood Fiber Luxury Sock and all of the Baah! that should arrive tomorrow. Then there is the Knot House Exclusive Shalimar Paulie Worsted due to arrive on Friday. Oh and more Duck Duck 80/20 Silk, Freia and maybe some more Western Sky! Mom has the counters full of new LoLo Bars and Glass Buttons by Jodie McDougall. And I didn’t even mention the linens and cottons!
So come in get your Metro Yarn Crawl Bag and fill it up! Get 7 stamps from participating shops and leave your card at The Knot House and enter to win 4 skeins of Duck Duck 50/50 Merino Silk DK and the Margarita Pattern by Thea Colman. We are also providing a free pattern, Imagine When, by Joji when you purchase one skein on Duck Duck 80/20 Merino Silk Fingering. Below is our Imagine When shop sample provided by Galeywayley.
Looking forward to seeing our friends and making new ones!
