The fiber community in Rhode Island is gearing up for the second annual Great Rhody Yarn Crawl this coming weekend. Over a dozen Rhode Island yarn stores are participating in the Crawl that runs from Friday to Sunday. The weekend includes prizes, raffles and store specials. You can find additional information about each store on Ravelry.
The weekend festivities end at Slater Mill on Sunday afternoon where there will be an Indie Fiber Arts Marketplace and culmination ceremony. If you're in the area, don't miss out on this weekend of fiber fun. It's a great opportunity to get out and explore some of Rhode Island's yarn stores. Print out your passport and get ready to crawl.
Once again the organizers are collecting donations for the Rhode Island Food Bank. Check here for a list of items the food bank needs. Last year the Crawl donated 1100 pounds of food. The goal for this year is 1500 pounds. Donations can be dropped off at the yarn stores or Slater Mill.
Dirty Water DyeWorks will be vending at Slater Mill on Sunday. I've been busy getting ready to head to Rhode Island but have squeezed in some knitting time.
The wee Austin Hoodie is a tangle of cables and ends right now. The left front and back are finished, and I'm working my way up the right front. After that I'll join the shoulders and whip up the sleeves. It won't be long and I'll be choosing buttons.
