Weekend Round Up!

Plied Knowledge: The week that was…

At the store:

  • Two more pre-orders are available!
  • Ravelry has added a new feature that we are excited by! Under Yarn Weight on Patterns, you can see when multiple strands are held together AND what the roughly equivalent weight is! A great example is our Shifting Shadows Cowl that holds 3 strands of lace at a time...
  • If you are looking for colorwork inspiration, we have a wonderful Brooklyn Tweed Trunk Show on display in the store to kick your creative juices into gear. Colorplay I is a compilation of some of their more popular pieces over the years and a delight to see in person...
  • Have you been on the hunt for a good shawl pin? We recently started carrying them again currently have a good stock of Paradise Shawl Pins  and Sticks in a variety of natural materials to help you find **just**the right one...
  • And don't forget to keep an eye on our classes - we update them regularly!

Around the web:

  • It is spider season here in the Pacific Northwest which seems like the perfect time to share this article about Pixar animators using AI spiders to create webs for the latest Toy Story movie...
  • The weather around us definitely took a turn for Fall this past weekend. Somehow, even with our damp, chilly winters and love of coffee, we have yet to see a Kaffeost or "cheese coffee" trend here...
  • For the classical art lovers out there, we stumbled across a delightfully irreverent guide on how to recognize famous painters by their art...
  • And finally, an utterly fascinating story of the restaurant of mistaken orders- all of their servers have dementia and may or may not get your order right. But, they do promise that everything on the menu is delicious...

And totally, completely, unapologetically local:

  • Twistedista Emily is happily fostering dogs for one of our favorite local charities that helps find homes for rescue dogs, One Tail At A Time. Their annual Bone Ball fundraiser is coming up on October 25th - help dogs and have a fun night out with your bestie or sweetie!
  • Been in the mood for saganaki and baklava? You are in luck that the Portland Greek Festival is this weekend!
  • Feeling like you need a laugh? It's the All Jane Comedy Festival is here to tickle your funny bone with some of the best female comedians working today...
  • And for the truly dedicated (or those just trying to get around town), it's the Portland Marathon on Sunday.

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