Summer's Last Blast Yarn Crawl

St. Louis area knit shops are doing another yarn crawl this year, the last weekend in July. I am not sure how much I'll be able to participate, as I am having a surgery one week before this, but I hope to be able to go to at least a few shops. There are twice as many stops this year as last year!!!

They are providing prize drawing entry for anyone visiting half the shops, and grand prizes drawing from folks visiting all the shops. Get ready to crawl!

Happy Knitting,
Lisa Kay

ETA: Map to all stores.
ETA: I recommend printing your "passport" ahead of time, in case the first store you visit is hectic. I found a copy to print on the calendar page of Knit One Weave Too.
