East Bay Yarn Crawl: Saturday, July 18

Many of you have had the pleasure of taking classes at Claddagh with teacher/designer/yarn whisperer Kira Dulaney, so I'm glad to let you know that she's put together another of her popular yarn crawls for Saturday, July 18, and has spaces still available. 

The agenda: Yarn Crawlers will meet at Exclusive Buttons in El Cerrito to check out their legendary vintage stash and a trunk show of Kira's patterns and kits; carpool to Claddagh, where we'll have lots of beautiful new samples out to inspire your next project (10 percent discount for attendees!); and then relax together over lunch at Thai Delight here in north Berkeley.

Claddagh's just had a couple of special deliveries: Perfect for portable summer knitting are gradient kits from Pigeonroof--dyed locally by Krista McCurdy, each set has 40 yards each of six ombre-making shades to be knit on their own or as striking complement to your next sweater, scarf, shawl . . . anything, really!

Another new favorite are our knitters' eye charts. The real deal, in lace pattern format, these make a fantastic gift for any knitter.
