Our new yarn!

The ladies of Portland Super Crafty are beyond excited to announce that Vickie Howell named one of her brand-new yarns in the CRAFT line after us! It was so sweet of her to think of us, and she gave us such a gorgeous color, too -- very superhero-y. Her CRAFT yarns are all 35% milk fiber/65% organic cotton, perfect for warm-weather knitting. The new colors premiere this summer, we can't wait.

the first Super Crafty swatch, knit up by Vickie herself!

In the meantime, there is a lot of cool crafty stuff going on in Portland over the next week -- here's a heads up:

We had a great time at the Northwest library craft-in last Sunday (after stopping by the big crafty swap, of course). People made all kinds of amazing matchbox shrines! We were really wowed. Torie made a special one for her grandfather's birthday, and I put this monkey shrine together for a certain nephew of mine:

It was so fun -- thanks again to the <a href="">Multnomah County Library</a> for being so crafty, and generously hosting us.

Oh, and don't forget that Crafty Wonderland is coming up this Sunday, too! The free craft at the DIY table is decorate-your-own can cozies for Father's Day, don't miss it.
