COME ON & LET'S MAKE-A-LONG
As part of this year’s James River Yarn Crawl at The Flying Needles, May 13-21, we invite you to pick up the exclusive mini skein and participate in the Post Crawl Make-A-Long.
Two designers have created two brand new patterns for this Make-A-Long. Jenna Hycner has created the knit pattern - Blend It Like a Boss. You also can find her on instagram @fibergnome. Christine Bush created the crocheted Sweetheart Crawl Shawl. She can be found as @bffcraftynotions on Instagram.
Each shawl is knit or crocheted with six fingering weight mini skeins, one from each shop, dyed exclusively for this year’s crawl. Pick up a mini when you visit each shop, and blend or fade them any way you like for your own unique souvenir of this year’s crawl.
The EXCLUSIVE Robin's Promise Yarn Co. mini skein for this project is Storm's Brewing. This deeply moody purple and blue yarn can be used as an anchor for your MAL shawl.
Patterns will debut May 6 on Ravelry, and each shop will feature their exclusive mini skein color beginning May 13, in each store and online.
The Make-A-Long will run from May 22 through June 30. Post your finished objects to either the Ravelry Thread or Instagram and Facebook and get qualified for a gift card from all six shops of $25 each! The Grand Prize winner will be chosen at random from all the pictures of finished objects posted. Winners are not limited to the two patterns. As long as all six mini skeins are used, your project will qualify. For those posting their projects to Instagram or Facebook, please use the tag: #JRYCMAL2022
