The Hot August Knits Yarn Crawl, a 2-week, 9-shop yarn crawl begins this Saturday in Northern Colorado and Southern Wyoming. If you’d like to participate, go to any one of the nine shops on the tour and get a passport (and a shopping tote while supplies last). The tour is self-guided which means you can visit as many or few shops as you like. At each shop on the tour, be sure to enter the raffle for a $50 gift certificate at that shop. If you complete the entire tour, and acquire stamps from all nine stores, you are then eligible for one of three grand prizes- just turn your passport at your last stop and cross your fingers! It all sounds like great fun- I’ve never been to this part of the country but something tells me it’s beautiful (and not really so hot). We have prepared a Interactive Map of the 2013 Hot August Knits Yarn Crawl for your use with info on each participating shop. The crawl runs Aug 10-25. More info can be found on the Hot August Knits Yarn Crawl Facebook page.
