The Rose City Yarn Crawl starts tomorrow and runs through Sunday. This is an annual event in Portland and if you are within driving distance of Portland you won't want to miss it. There are 19 stores and 50 sponsors participating in the crawl and they are all great! There are wonderful gift baskets at each store with some beautiful prizes in them. Each store has a pattern that has been especially written just for the yarn crawl, and a whole bunch of special events happening throughout the weekend.
The event that I am most excited about is happening at All About Yarn on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. That's because they are hosting me and my trunk show! I am really honored and can't wait to see all of the knitters and talk with them about their projects and answer questions about my designs! If you are in the area on Saturday, stop by and say hello. I'd love to see you!!

Valley Yarns Northfield is a customer and staff favorite. Soft enough to wear against the skin, great stitch definition for cable work, and 22 lovely colors to choose from. These nine Northfield projects on Ravelry are excellent examples of why we love Northfield so much.
Hey everybody! Erin's Hat and Erin's Mittens were featured in the Webs blog post yesterday! How lucky am I? You can go here to read all about it!
The post highlights designs using Webs Valley Yarn - Northfield which is a yummy yarn made up of merino, baby alpaca and silk. What's not to love about that? Northfield is really wonderful to knit with, has great stitch definition and feels so good next to your skin.
The Webs blog post is just another example of what I love about this fiber industry; people helping each other. Thanks again to Webs for featuring my patterns. You guys are the best!!

Back in July I published my Lucy pattern, featuring Valley Yarn ~ Charlemont from Webs and just recently they featured my Lucy pattern in their February 4th blog post! I am really proud and very excited to be included in this post along with some other pretty great designers!
I really loved working with Charlemont, actually it's the second time I have used this yarn in my design work. Barbara is also designed using it. The yarn has beautiful stitch definition and drape. I know I will use more of it in the future.
Thanks Steve and Kathy for the shout out! You guys are the best!!
