Weekend Round Up!

New Plied Knowledge: The week that was…

At the store:

  • Another Rose City Yarn Crawl is in the history books. Congratulations to all the prize winners from all the stores and, of course, to those hardy Grand Prize winners chose randomly among the 1000+ people who visited all 10 shops! A gigantic, heartfelt, grateful THANK YOU to everyone who came out and supported LYS in PDX. We adored seeing old friends, meeting new ones, and admiring all of the fabulous knitted items on display! Planning meetings for 2020 start in April...
  • Since we just can't bear for our annual fiber festival to end quite yet, we are leaving our two 2019 RCYC exclusive colors on sale at 10% off through the end of the month! Both Red Dawn and Shed A Little Light from the fabulous Tina at Blue Moon are still available in each of our RCYC featured bases, Featherlight and Socks That Rock Lightweight
  • In the middle of all the hubbub over the weekend, we managed to get in some Quince & Co. AND now have their Core Wool 2018 trunk show up if you need inspiration...
  • We also have our house brand Twisted Blocking Mats back in stock and ready to perfectly finish all of your new projects!
  • And don't forget to keep an eye on our classes - we update them regularly!

Around the web:

  • Now that we are all stocked on up on yarn, let's look at patterns!
    • First up, Twistedista Dawn is looking to de-stash with Andrea Mowry's Nightshift shawl. So many fun color combos!
    • Twistedista Anny loves the Granny Stripe blanket for the crocheters out there...
    • Twistedista Cheri often recommends the free pattern Fetching fingerless gloves for a fun and quick knitting destash project...
    • And one more crochet pattern from Anny, the Holland Beanie- so cute!
  • And now from beyond the world of fiber, we give you an artist who fixes buildings with Lego...
  • Feeling the need to get crafty but NOT with yarn? Try these ping pong ball lights!
  • And finally, it seems as though Twistedista Emily is not alone in being a Star Trek: The Next Generation fan. Stacey Abrams has used what she learned from watching the show to create interesting strategies in her political life...

And totally, completely, unapologetically local:

  • Ok, so while this is from the Multnomah County Library and those of us lucky enough to be local get access to more copies of the book, there is no reason not to join in the citywide book club from afar... Their Everybody Reads pick this time around is Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's novel Americanah for adults and the essay We Should All Be Feminists for high school students. From the Library's website: "Americanah offers a frank assessment of how our societies both strengthen and fail us as we search for meaning."

Have a great weekend and remember, you can always find us online!
