Happenings : Knit Culture Studio/ LA Yarn Crawl

So what's everyone doing this weekend? If you're in Southern California you probably already know this is going on, but just in case....did you know that April 3-6 is the big LA Yarn Crawl? Don't you want to go??  I sure do!

As part of the Yarn Crawl festivities, I've teamed up with Knit Culture Studio on a couple of fun things. Number one is a trunk show in their space that will run the entire month of April. If you stop by as part of the yarn crawl, please say hello to my samples for me! And if you can't make it this weekend, you have until the end of the month to go try on Glacerie, Mielie, Rioja, and others. The really cool thing about this is that my trunk show isn't alone! Some of my knitting buddies are represented as well, including Irish Girlie Knits, Leethal Knits, and Fresh Stitches. You can read more about it all on Knit Culture's blog.

Number two is pretty exciting to me. A new shawl, EXCLUSIVE to Knit Culture during the length of my trunk show. The Itineris pattern will be available there starting this weekend and I believe you get a yarn discount if you purchase it. It takes two skeins of Anzula Cloud and is very fun to make (if I do say so myself).  (Itineris will be available as a Ravelry download in May.)


I wish I could be there myself, so please let me know if you end up taking part in any of the Yarn Crawl LA festivities!

The yarn crawl sounds like fun! Toronto does something similar, which I really should try to attend this year.
The shawl is lovely. Those colours pop and make me smile. Hooray for brights with greys!

Hi Kimberly! The shawl is called Itineris, and right now it's only available at Knit Culture Studio. But I'll be releasing the pattern as a Ravelry download in the beginning of May, so stay tuned!
