Our local yarn crawl, known briefly as the RCYC, begins this Wednesday evening with a kick-off party at the Windows Skyroom of the downtown Red Lion. For some of us, Wednesday is still a school night so I won't be able to trek all the way into town for The Yarn Ball, but I will be going to knit night at my local shop to accompany the rather large trunk show we've been putting together. You'll find me at The Knitting Bee from about 6:30pm to 8:30pm, where you'll also find quite a lot of Lilt Sock in my new Whimsical Solids and some accompanying multicolors. I'm also taking over a small selection of Pebble Sock in various colors and my new Sublime DK in a small selection of Whimsical Solids. My trunk show at The Bee also includes quite a few skeins of their signature color, Waggle Dance. The whole show will be running the length of the RCYC, which ends Sunday, March 2nd. I will be in attendance again with the trunk show for most of Saturday, so I hope to see a few of you locals then. Here's a list of my other stores taking part in the RCYC and their Black Trillium yarns: For Yarn's Sake has Lilt Sock. Happy Knits has Merilon Sock and Pebble Worsted. Black Sheep Orenco has Pebble Sock, Merilon Sock and what is left of my Pebble Silk Sock. Wool'n'Wares has Lilt Sock as well as Merilon Sock. I'm excited to see how many folks are wearing their Mystery Gear during the crawl! Quite a few knitters chose to use Lilt Sock for Michele Bernstein's shawl pattern, and I've been trying to keep track of some of the finished ones in a special thread in my Ravlery group. The thread only has a fraction of the shawls I've seen in person, so if you know someone with a finished one in Black Trillium Yarns send them my way! Hopefully I can put together a post-event round-up with photos an such before I go head-long into Vogue Knitting Live prep. TTFN!
