The Portland Yarn Crawl happens this weekend, March 5-7. What's a yarn crawl? You visit and sign in at any of the 16 participating yarn stores and you receive a raffle ticket to win one of the 16 identical baskets at each store. You don't need to buy anything to get a raffle ticket. Just visit the store, sign in and you get a free raffle ticket. So, if you visit all 16 stores over the weekend, you have 16 chances to win. You can only enter once per store. There's also a scavenger hunt. The theme is “Hat’s off to Portland’s Knitting Designers.” As you visit each store, be on the lookout for a handknit hat with a numbered tag. The first two people who email firstname.lastname@example.org with the correct names of the designer, store name and item number will win kits from Blue Sky Alpacas.
