Store Highlight: Yarnia, Woonsocket.

Here at Yarnia we're looking forward to another awesome crawl weekend -- it's a fun filled weekend where we get to see lots of new people, see lots of new to us projects, and together we are inspired to keep things interesting and exciting through the summer.

We've added many new products in anticipation of the crawl including:

   Noro Taiyo (a soft version of Noro!) and Nadeshiko chunky -- we will have Noro trunk show garments for the crawl so you can see how this super fun yarn actually knits up. Ask to see our really cute patchwork tote!
   An Indie Dyer has dyed up a special selection of fiber, sock yarn, and DK weight yarn. The colors are vibrant and exciting. Her colorways are inspired by graffiti and very unique.
   We've restocked our wall of Manos including new colors of both Maxima and Alegria. Soft and squishy!
   Sweet Georgia has dyed some shawl kits for us that will just jump off the shelves -- gorgeous, but not a challenge to knit.
   A local Alpaca farm will be in store with a selection of natural colored sport weight alpaca.
   And, last but not least, my sewing machine and I have been busy and our popular Purlie Bags will be out for first come first served sale.

Lots of items to raffle including, but not limited to: Manos, Rowan, a custom embroidered project bag, and a full set of ChiaoGoo Interchangeable Needles
We will have many smaller raffle items throughout the weekend, in addition to the grand prize, so more people have a chance to win something.

As in years past, we will be collecting food bank donations and offering an additional raffle entry for those crawlers that bring a food bank donation. They were so appreciative last year at that fantastic quantity donated last year, and after this long and super cold winter they surely need to restock their shelves. Our selected group not only provides a city wide food pantry, but offers both overnight shelter, warming center services, and community meals to those in need.

I'm sure I've forgotten something, Melissa and I have been working non-stop to make sure there's lots to see, touch, and try on during the crawl weekend. Yes, I even have the jeweler Melissa knitting now...

Please make sure to stop by and say hi -- I promise cookies!
