If you haven't gotten your passport for the Greater Boston Yarn Crawl be sure to stop by before the crawl and pick yours up.
While you are at the store, get the pattern and yarn for the Freedom Trail Scarf which I know you will want to make even if you aren't doing the crawl. This pattern can be purchased at any of the yarn shops participating in the GBYC for $4.00 until the last day of the crawl when the price will be $6.00. This is the perfect project to make on your summer vacation. It's fast easy and fun! Stop in at Creative Warehouse, purchase your pattern and yarn so you'll be ready for September!

Saturday, September 19, 5 pm -7 pm: Shibui Mix Party with Jess
What is a Mix Party? A Mix Party is Shibui's way to introduce you to their unique fiber combinations and textures. Using one or more yarns to create delicious fabrics is one of their specialty. The other is the simplicity of their designs. Join us and learn how to mix and match their yarns to create their fabulous Shibui style. Be sure to bring an assortment of needles to try out these yarns. We have samples for you to try on. The cost for this special event is $10.00, which you can put towards your purchase of Shibui yarns. RSVP soon. Space is limited.
Sunday, September 20, 1 pm -4 pm: We will be knitting for Brookline Keeps Smiling, an organization that supplies knitted items to veterans and their families. Stop by while on the crawl and start a scarf, hat or mittens or just knit a few rows on one of the scarves we've already started! Every stitch counts! Creative Warehouse is a drop-off spot and will receive all your donations for this very special group.
